Democratic Party staffer Graeme Zielinski was removed as the party spokesman following his Twitter outburst in which he compared Republican Gov. Scott Walker to serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, sources said Monday.
Party leaders also docked Zielinski a week's pay - which works out to a little more than $1,000 - for his tweets after Milwaukee prosecutors announced that they were shutting down a secret criminal investigation of Walker's aides.
Late Friday, Zielinski removed the offensive tweets and apologized both to the families of Dahmer's victims and to the first-term Republican governor.
One source close to the party said Zielinski, a former newspaper reporter, will stay on with the state Democratic Party as a "media adviser." He will, however, no longer be permitted to post on Twitter, where he has been prolific in recent years.
"He agreed," said one source. "He's aware of the mistakes he's made."
The source declined to say why officials decided to keep Zielinski on the party payroll.

Ping for your list.
When the left comes unglued it’s not a pretty picture...
he will end up in some union role under another name. Bank on it...he did his job. Many dumb demoncrats will believe it. THUS, He did his job...
Well, at least he’s not going back to being a ‘newspaper reporter’...
Inside their echo chambers, anything and everything is allowed. When they get out in public, their filters have atrophied. That’s when they get to the point that they threaten to shoot someone for supporting gun rights.
Off the deep end.
Idiot will rise through the ranks of the dem party.
Because they agree with him.
$5 says that this guy is either a union goon or a homo.
Beautifully and concisely put: yr. 3rd sentence reminds me of the old bumper sticker from 30+ years ago:
“Support mental health or I’ll kill you”.
“When the left comes unglued its not a pretty picture..”
I rather like it myself! hahaha
Case in point. One of my Democrat FB friends used the phrase “Congressional Retardicans”. He was quickly chastised by the Autism victims for using the R word. He never realized that you can’t say that word now because all his fellow Dem yuksters use it.
Make him work and get indoctrinated by the Milwaukee County Sheriff.
He’s just Twittered that he’s taken the job as spokesman for “Fat dorky retards with stupid names”.
Wrong - the New York Times is looking for a very special type of news reporter... the kind that 'gets it' - Graeme Zielinski would fit right in...
Kinda sounds like a promotion.
The Marxist twisted freaks who make a scene are getting the axe. Better to be quiet and deadly like the White Hut Czars.
Tell me, then, why do these peeps (reporters? Bbbbwwwaaaaaaahaha) write nothing but "stories"?
Plenty of elementary school attending kids love to tell "stories".
I kinda like their nastiness being out in the open and readily identifiable.
Democrat leader sent to “time out” for nasty tweets!
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
