Heads are rolling in Tammy Baldwin’s office. Daniel Bice reports:

Marquette Baylor — deputy state director for Baldwin and chief of her Milwaukee office — was let go on Thursday without explanation. Baylor has been offered a cash payout as part of a severance package if the former aide agrees to keep her lips zipped.

That order to keep quiet does not put the greatest trust in that legislator’s office. Staffers can go, but that will only distract from the gross and dangerous neglect from other legislators who have proactively ignored this fiasco.
