not the sort of irish republicans i like....
Their father, Stephen Fitzgerald, pictured above, was recently appointed to run the WI state highway patrol, as an apparent wink, wink, nod, nod ain't it going to be nice to work together present Gov. Walker gave to Big & Little Fitz..
Today, Democrats in the WI Senate have boycotted the vote which would end collective bargaining rights for those unions who opposed the Republican governor in the last election. Because 20 senators of the 33-member house are needed to be present to pass a fiscal bill, 19 Republicans will not be enough to pass the bill without a Democrat present (and most reports have said that only 17 Republicans showed up today). What have the Fitzgerald brothers decided to do? Call dad and have him order state highway patrolmen to go get the Democratic Senators and bring them in for a vote.
But as it turns out all 14 Democratic state senators are reported to be out of state.
The scuttlebutt is that the U.S. Marshals will be called next. Perhaps the Fitzgeralds have a cousin in federal law enforcement.
