On Friday evening, someone posted the following on Democratic Party of Wisconsin official spokesperson's Graeme Zielinski's twitter page:
My heartfelt apologies to the victims of Jeffrey Dahmer. Their pain is not something with which I should have trifled.
Which was closely followed by:
And my apologies to @GovWalker for my inappropriate Tweeting.
However, Zielinski has yet to appear on camera to explain his actions or to confirm that indeed he posted the half-hearted apologies, and that those last two tweets were not done on his behalf by his superiors at DPW.
A prolific social media smear merchant, Zielinski himself has been temporarily muzzled. His Twitter account has been silent since Friday evening.
Perhaps Democrats in this state are hoping this will blow over as we start this next week?
Now, what constituted what he called his "inappropriate tweeting?"
He's compared the Governor to the most notorious mass murderer in Wisconsin history.
.@GovWalker had better lawyers than Jeffrey Dahmer in beating the rap. Clear that he committed crimes.
Will these two statements, placed on his account, be enough to save his job as the official spokesperson of all Democrats in Wisconsin? That's up to the Democratic establishment in this state. If you talk to them, let us know what they tell you.
Are they happy with his job performance? Are they proud to be represented by him?

None of these elected officials have commented on camera about the incident. None of them has made any comment about Graeme Zielinski's status as their official spokesperson.
Remember, their silence is a vote of confidence that ensures he gets to keep at it.
Again, please let us know if you hear from these top Democrats, and we'll do the same.
