Surely the Republicans are not that arrogant.

More jobs for the boys.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Madison — The father of the state’s two most powerful legislators was named Tuesday as the head of the State Patrol.

Department of Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb passed over five current top officials at the State Patrol to give the job to Stephen Fitzgerald, 68, a former Dodge County sheriff with four decades in law enforcement who was until May the U.S. marshal in the Western District of Wisconsin. <span style='font-size: 23pt'>Fitzgerald ran for Dodge County sheriff again in September in the Republican primary but was defeated 2-to-1 by incumbent Sheriff Todd Nehls.</span> <span style="color: #990000">ie he was rejected by the electorate.</span>

Fitzgerald starts Monday and will earn $105,700, slightly less than the current acting superintendent.

Fitzgerald’s sons – Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) – took over the top positions in their respective houses after Republican victories in November’s elections. The appointment drew sharply divergent reactions in the capital city, ranging from praise to skepticism and outright criticism.

“I have to believe and I want to believe that the appointment of Mr. Fitzgerald was done for his qualifications and nothing else,” said Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee).

Glen Jones, president of the Wisconsin Troopers Association union, praised Stephen Fitzgerald.

“<span style='font-size: 23pt'>I have no concern about nepotism</span>,” Jones said. “I firmly believe Steve Fitzgerald is head and shoulders above those (internal) candidates, and we’re hoping he brings a breath of fresh air to the agency.”

The other applicants for the job were all State Patrol leaders – Acting Superintendent David Collins, Col. Ben Mendez, Maj. Sandra Huxtable, Maj. Darren Price and Maj. Daniel Lonsdorf.

The appointment was made by Gottlieb, <span style='font-size: 26pt'>but Gov. Scott Walker also interviewed Fitzgerald.</span> Walker talked to Fitzgerald after the Department of Transportation identified him as the best person for the job, Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said.

Because the job is politically appointed, Gottlieb does not need to follow the normal hiring process required for the vast majority of employees under the civil service system. Unlike cabinet-level posts, the appointment also does not need to be confirmed by the state Senate. </div></div>

We have a Rep who hires his mistress.
We have Dems who just make their interns their mistress.

I don't see a whole lot of difference.

I think this proves you didn't read my post.

When S Walker is says there is no money and everyone must sacrifice, he is lying. He does one of his cronies a favour by giving the guy's mistress a job - <span style='font-size: 17pt'>paying her $12,000 more than her predecessor.</span>

And had it been a Dem who did the same thing, you would never have posted it.

We've got you number, Q....just another leftwing hypocrite.

If they have no point to make, changing font size is one of their favorite ways of making it look like they do.
