As long as all of their relations are on the public dime…The Righteous Brothers, Jeff and Scott Fitzgerald, are the republicans in charge of the Wisconsin State Assembly and the state Senate. They have hopped on the republicans silly talking point “Wisconsin is open for business.” It also appears that Wisconsin is open to employ the whole Fitzgerald family. The father of the state\'s two most powerful lawmakers is seeking to serve as the head of the State Patrol under Gov. Scott Walker.
Fitzgerald said he wasn’t seeking any special treatment in his bid for the state job and that he was one of several candidates who had been interviewed for it.
“I have a long history in law enforcement, and I feel I can add something to the State Patrol,” he said. “I don’t see any connection between my sons’ positions” and the job.
Jeff Fitzgerald said he was making an effort to remain out of the hiring process.
Nope no connection at all between applying with a Governor who needs Fitzgerald’s sons cooperation to get his agenda through. Sure The Fitzgerald brothers are staying “out” of it. Where is the “tea party” on this one? Isn’t this nepotism one of the many things they were angry over? Or does the independent “tea party” give the republican party a free pass on ALL issues?
