The good news/bad news about Evers and a pending PSC pick

So here's the deal: A Walker appointee is leaving the PSC, and Evers gets to name the replacement.


Fitzgerald is running for Congress.

An Evers appointment would give him a 2-1 majority on the Commission.

But...Fitzgerald's GOP-run State Senate must confirm the nominee.

That body under Fitzgerald's tight control has already fired one Evers' acting cabinet secretary who irked some forever-Walker Republicans and their special interests, and has held up confirmation hearings on many others.

So unless Evers appoints Oil Baron von Lobbyguy, expect Fitzgerald to keep playing a bad losers perpetually partisan game rather than doing his routine civic duty.
