DOT spokesman Robert Miller said in an email statement to The Associated Press that Assistant Deputy Secretary Steven Krieser was no longer employed at the agency as of Thursday. He declined to elaborate.

Walker spokesman Tom Evenson says in a statement Krieser's remarks are repugnant and unacceptable. He says Walker condemns Krieser's views and they don't represent the governor in any way.
