Madison — Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald issued a withering statement Saturday ahead of the return of the 14 Democratic Senators to the state Capitol.

He called the Senators “the most shameful 14 people in the state of Wisconsin” and said it was “an absolute insult” to hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites that the Senators ran away to Illinois to block Gov. Scott Walker’s budget-repair bill.

Fitzgerald wrote: “To the Senate Democrats: when you smile for the cameras today and pretend you’re heroes, I hope you look at that beautiful Capitol building you insulted. And I hope you’re embarrassed to call yourselves senators.”

Here is Fitzgerlad’s entire statement:

Today, the most shameful 14 people in the state of Wisconsin are going to pat themselves on the back and smile for the cameras. They’re going to pretend they’re heroes for taking a three week vacation.

It is an absolute insult to the hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites who are struggling to find a job, much less one they can run away from and go down to Illinois — with pay.

Their appearance at the Capitol today is in direct violation of the contempt order issued by the state Senate earlier this month, and it proves their absolute disregard for the institution of the Senate and the constitution they took an oath of office to serve.

But the people of Wisconsin won’t forget what they were really doing these past few weeks.

Sen. Tim Cullen refused to come back to save 1,500 jobs.

Sen. Mark Miller refused to come back even to make sure his own staff were safe in the Capitol he abandoned.

Sen. Fred Risser refused to come back out of respect for the institution and dignity of the state Senate.

Sen. Bob Jauch refused to come back even though our side was negotiating in good faith to try to find a reasonable compromise.

Sens. Jon Erpenbach, Chris Larson and Lena Taylor were all too happy to pat themselves on the back and smile for the cameras in Illinois, never mind their constituents here in Wisconsin.

And Sens. Dave Hansen, Kathleen Vinehout, Tim Carpenter, Spencer Coggs, Jim Holperin, and Julie Lassa refused to come back to actually do the job they were elected to do.

To the Senate Democrats: When you smile for the cameras today and pretend you’re heroes, I hope you look at that beautiful Capitol building you insulted. And I hope you’re embarrassed to call yourselves senators.

The 14 Democratic state senators who fled Wisconsin last month in a failed attempt to block legislation stripping most public employees of nearly all collective-bargaining rights returned to the Capitol on Saturday, welcomed by the cheers of thousands of supporters and promising to continue their fight.

"It is so good to be here, Wisconsin!" said state Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller, the first senator to address the crowd. He and his colleagues had just marched around the Capitol, shaking hands with protesters as they followed union firefighters playing bagpipes and carrying U.S. and Wisconsin flags.

Madison police estimated that 85,000 to 100,000 people gathered at the Capitol and on surrounding streets Saturday, making the rally the largest since protests began about a month ago.

Democratic state Sen. Dave Hansen fired back, calling Fitzgerald "an embarrassment to the state."

"We stood up for the workers of this state," Hansen said in an interview. "I'm never, ever going to apologize."

Those 100,000 workers in front of the Capitol are really just union thugs who need to be dealt with harshly.

The Dems that ran to IL dishonered democracy.

Yet, they STILL are not as big a pricks/cock-suckers as the WI governor and Republicans.

Not even close. Truth.
