Tony Evers' pick for Department of Transportation could face rough road to confirmation.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/21/2018)
Get me rewrite:  Senate Majority Leader wants DOT secreteary who can be bought and sold. Gov.-elect Tony Evers on Friday added four more faces to his Cabinet — including an advocate of raising revenue for Wisconsin roads to lead the state's Department of Transportation. 
But the GOP leader of the state Senate cast doubt on Evers' pick for DOT just hours after his name was announced, putting the lobbyist's confirmation in jeopardy.

A lame-duck power grab wasn't enough.   Now they want to quash his cabinet picks.  Not to mention this overreach.
