Walker pressured by Iowans to fire aide for anti-Iowa tweets

Bad news for Walker from Iowa. The New York Times says Iowa Republicans want a Walker aide fired for the nasty things she said about...Iowa... so stay tuned:
Iowa’s Republican leadership blasted Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin on Tuesday for hiring a senior adviser who has mocked the state’s caucus and its voters, and called on Mr. Walker to fire her... 
The co-chairman of the state party, Cody Hoefert, also took umbrage. “When anybody who works for a presidential campaign thinks it’s OK to insult Iowa, Iowa voters and Iowa farmers, I find it absolutely disgusting and repulsive,’’ he said.  
Republican leaders said they had called Mr. Walker but had not yet heard back. 
I'd noted a few hours ago that you might want to read the Walker aide's rants against Iowa before she or the tweets went away:
Because the links could go dead in this amazing Cap Times story or the Walker campaign consultant quoted might get sent packing as has befallen some other Team Walker transgressors.  
Samples from the Walker's presidential campaign online consultant, a veteran of many campaigns, including Walker successful 2012 recall win, include: 

The sooner we remove Iowa's frontrunning status, the better off American politics and policy will be....
Morons across America are astounded to learn that people from *IOWA* grow up rather government-dependent.

Iowa's religious leaders directed Scott's decision on the casino. Now it appears the political lights of the state may be making his human resource decisions for him.
I'll bet he's wishing everyone would just be Midwestern nice and stop making his life so difficult.
Should be interesting to see how he handles this.

If she's not gone already, she will be, pronto. They will have to cut this off before a day two story, with national follow-up.

When she is fired, he will have to change the title of his book from "Unintimidated" to, "Intimidated".
