The long-time secretary of the state Senate has left her job.
That's according to a report in today's State Bill News, which quotes Senate president Brandon Shaffer's chief of staff as saying Karen Goldman was fired.
An appointment as Senate secretary is bipartisan. It is one of six non-partisan staff appointments in the chamber.
Goldman served two years in the job between 2001-2003 and then held it again from 2005 until her tenure ended as a result of the decision to dismiss her.
