WI Democratic Party spokesman apologizes for Dahmer comment


MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's Democratic Party spokesman apologizes for comparing Governor Scott Walker with serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

Graeme Zielinski made the comments in three tweets after prosecutors announced Friday they closed the John Doe investigation of Governor Walker's aides.

Zielinski says, "Governor Walker had better lawyers than Jeffrey Dahmer in beating the rap. Clear that he committed crimes."

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says top Democrats call the tweets inappropriate.

Zielinski deleted the tweets and apologized to Governor Walker and the families of Dahmer's victims over Twitter.
