WI GOP Sen. Scott Fitzgerald: Democratic senators won't be allowed to vote in committees

Share

Remember this guy?

Of course you do. Good old Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, the same hypocridiot who said in the video below, "That's not democracy. That's not what this building is about."

As I've been saying repeatedly, the Wisconsin GOP legislators are doing their level best to crush unions, the Democratic party and shoot for one-party rule. Say it with me.

Subject: Senate Democrat voting privileges in standing committees

Dear Members,

With the return of the Senate Democrats this weekend, questions have arisen regarding Democrat members’ participation in Senate standing committee public hearings and executive sessions.

Please note that all 14 Democrat senators are still in contempt of the Senate. Therefore, when taking roll call votes on amendments and bills during executive sessions, Senate Democrats’ votes will not be reflected in the Records of Committee Proceedings or the Senate Journal. They are free to attend hearings, listen to testimony, debate legislation, introduce amendments, and cast votes to signal their support/opposition, but those votes will not count, and will not be recorded.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact my office.

Thank you,

Scott Fitzgerald
Senate Majority Leader
13th Senate District

I have a question, Scotty: What exactly is it that you have against real democracy?
