Does Fitzgerald's lobbyist gig mean toll roads for Wisconsin?

I think it does.

Former Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald just left his seat and leadership position in the state Legislature. But he won't be leaving the Capitol.

Fitzgerald is the latest in a long line of state lawmakers Democrats and Republicans who swap public service for more lucrative careers as private lobbyists.

It's a revolving door that Wisconsin allows to spin far too fast.

Fitzgerald's successor in the Legislature had just been sworn into office on Monday when, a day later, Fitzgerald registered to lobby for American Traffic Solutions. By Thursday, Fitzgerald had added another client: School Choice Wisconsin.

American Traffic Solutions makes big money from toll roads, red light cams, etc...

And that little shit is also lobbying for School Choice of Wisconsin? How much bleaker can this picture get???
