Gov. Walker distances himself from Black Friday fundraising letter

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker said he would not have put out a campaign fundraising letter that a fired staffer e-mailed on Black Friday.  

Taylor Palmisano was let go this week, after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote about tweets she made over the past two years which insulted Hispanics. Palmisano was Walker's deputy finance director for his re-election campaign.  

According to the AP, her fundraising letter read, "Instead of electronics or toys that will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next holiday season," Walker's supporters should give the money to his campaign instead.  

Thursday, the Republican Walker said the letter was, "certainly not something I would have put out."

He also said he was not aware of Palmisano's tweets until they hit the media, but he responded by taking action.
