Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), who's trying to generate buzz for a possible 2016 presidential run, had to fire a campaign aide today for her past racist Twitter rants against Latinos—the second such incident to rock Walker's administration since last summer.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Taylor Palmisano, Walker's deputy campaign finance director, was let go Tuesday after activists pointed out her old grumpy "fuck"-filled tweets about "illegal" people who were bothering her on the bus and in the library....
This was the second such firing since August, when another Walker aide—Steven Krieser, assistant deputy secretary of the Wisconsin department of transportation—lost his job after writing on Facebook that illegal immigrants were the spawn of Satan:
[W]e get to be treated to the incredible chutzpah of hundreds of thousands of these criminals marching in the streets in broad daylight, demanding all the benefits of citizenship from a country whose laws they are breaking even as they are standing there. The illegals themselves have bred the animus that many American citizens feel toward them You may see Jesus when you look at them. I see Satan.

Walker Fires Campaign Aide Promoting War on Christmas Gifts to Kids.
Just amazing. You no longer have to wonder what Scott Walker thinks about immigrants, or says about them around his office and private meetings. His aide spilled the beans.
