Watch as Republican State Senate majority leader Scott Fitzgerald explains how corporations, not legislators, wrote the mining bill Republicans plan on ramming through this session:
Obviously I’m not one bit surprised at the “foxes in the henhouse” approach employed by Sen. Fitzgerald and his Republican colleagues, because they’ve never struck me as being truly interested [...]
There. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way,
This is absolutely appalling. Now, let’s talk about what really happened in the Michigan Legislature when Majority Floor Leader Jim Stamas, R-Midland, silenced two female legislators because he and other GOP members didn’t like their frank language the day before.

By all accounts, Lori Compas exceeded expectations at Wednesday night’s debate with Senator Scott Fitzgerald. She had the support of roughly 3/4 of the crowd packed into the Jefferson High School auditorium, and she more than held her own. “I think it went amazingly well,” said Compas’ husband aka The Mastermind.

At issue are recent comments Sen. [...]
It’s probably not smart political strategy for a male politician to make misogynistic comments about his female challenger a few weeks before his recall election. But that’s exactly what Republican Senator Scott Fitzgerald did on Saturday. According to Clay Barbour, Wisconsin State Journal, Fitzgerald had this to say about his opponent:

On Friday Lori Compas, the Democratic candidate for State Senate District 13, announced her campaign has raised more than $100,000 since she announced her candidacy just 55 days ago. According to Compas’ campaign, the average total contribution was $30. “I’m thrilled with this outpouring of grassroots support,” Compas said, noting that 98 percent of the [...]
Here’s another consequence of the insane clown show our state government has become under the Satrap of Fitzwalkerstan and his minions. Meet the “ghost wards” of Eau Claire.
