Madison, WI - On Tuesday, the Republican campaign Friends of Scott Waker headquarters to re-elect Governor Scott Walker confirmed that Taylor Palmisano, 23, the Deputy Finance Director has been dropped from the campaign staff after several racist tweets that she posted resurfaced targetting illegal aliens. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (MJS) reported that Palmisano posted two tweets aimed at illegal aliens. In one, Palmisano posted, "I will choke that illegal mex cleaning in the library. Stop banging f○○king chairs around and turn off your Walkman." (Dated March 9, 2011)
The other tweet stated, "This bus is my worst f○○king nightmare Nobody speaks English & these ppl dont know how 2 control their kids #only3morehours #illegalaliens." Palmisano was returning to Wisconsin from a Badger Rose Bowl game in Pasadena, CA and was heading to Las Vegas in January 3, 2011, the MJS reported.
Palmisano has deleted her Facebook  and Twitter accounts, since she was fired from the Walker re-election campaign.
Walker is running for re-election in 2014 and is seen as a potential candidate for President in 2016, eventhough his hasn't earned a college degree, according to critics. 
In October, Walker attempted to attract the Latino vote by contacting the Mexican government and requesting for President Enrique Peña Nieto to open a Mexican Consulate in Wisconsin. Walker has noticed the economic growth and contribution that Hispanics have contributed to the state's economic growth, but he has yet to publicly endorsed for undocumented immigrants in Wisconsin to apply for driver licenses or to allow for instate tuition for DREAMers in the state.
Until Walker allows driver licenses to be issued to undocumented immigrants and also allow instate tuition for DREAMers, Latinos in the state will not take Governor Walker seriously.
Former Democratic Governor Jim Doyle signed a law preventing undocumented immigrants from applying or renewing their driver licenses in the state.
