As many as 30 nine people are said to be ex-employees in the ranks of Liberals tonight; not just former chief of staff Ian Davey and former communications director Jill Fairbrother. Or that's the buzz out there. It is looking like the dismissals are budget-related; too much staff for a long period of waiting for the next election. Anyone with more information is of course welcome to send it on here.
** Update: Via National Newswatch (on Twitter), apparently principal secretary Dan Brock is also gone.
** While 30 was one number out there tonight, I actually heard from an OLO staffer around 10 p.m. who said that nine people left today. Thanks!
