Fitzgerald back as Senate majority leader

Like it never happened... the nightmare returns.

Republicans in the state Senate have chosen Scott Fitzgerald as their leader again.

Fitzgerald, a Juneau Republican, served as Senate majority leader during most of the last two-year session. He lost the post after Democrats seized control of the chamber in June’s recall elections.

5. ...and they control Attorney General, Supreme Court, etc

The Republicans control every part of of the Wisconsin State government apart from the Office of the Secretary of State of Wisconsin.

And we all know that they are going to use that power to seriously f**k us up! It's just a matter of when it starts.
