Update: Scott Walker's communications aide bowed to pressure from Iowa Republicans and "resigned late Tuesday after drawing criticism for knocking Iowa’s role in the presidential nomination process.
"Liz Mair, a veteran Republican consultant, told the Associated Press she was leaving the GOP presidential hopeful’s political team just a day after she had been hired by Walker’s Our American Revival PAC to
provide advice on social media." (Camia, USA Today)
The Des Moines Register first reported Mair's critical statements regarding Iowa yesterday morning.
Scott Walker may be getting the message on not surrounding himself with stupid people like convicted criminals and former top aides, Tim Russell (embezzled from veterans) and Kelly M. Rindfleisch (misconduct in public office).
Walker's online communications director for his PAC, Liz Mair, tells it like it is: Iowa Republicans are not the brightest bulbs in the world.
Trip Gabriel has the story in the New York Times:
Liz Mair tweeted, “In other news, I see Iowa is once again embarrassing itself, and the GOP, this morning. Thanks, guys.”
A minute later, she wrote, “The sooner we remove Iowa’s frontrunning status, the better off American politics and policy will be.”
The Iowa GOP wants Mair gone.
Walker would do well to keep her around, maybe smarten Walker up a little.
C'mon Scott Walker, you and even God knows you're not ready. Stick to what you're good at: Hold your hands out so taxpayers and the Koch brothers give you rightwing welfare money. Could do worse.
