If you're a Wisconsin resident who was speeding during your morning commute today, there's a reason why you weren't pulled over ... state troopers were busy
As of 9 a.m. Thursday no Senate Democrats had been located by state troopers, according to a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau).
Fitzgerald ordered troopers to the homes of the 14 absent Democratic senators earlier Thursday morning. He said he'd heard they some were sleeping at home and driving days to Chicago.
With all of the crocodile tears Republicans are shedding over the budget, you'd think they'd be more concerned about publicly wasting the taxpayers' dollars because Fitzgerald heard a rumor.
But hey, times are tough. Maybe Fitzgerald was just trying to get his daddy some overtime pay.
