MADISON – Yesterday, Rep. Sean Duffy was named the newest character in the hottest reality show on television: the Donald Trump transition team.After months of acting as Trump Tower talking head, Rep. Duffy is finally getting his reward by joining Trump’s transition as an executive committee member.

Duffy joins Wall Street insiders, including Trump’s choice for treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, a hedge fund manager who preyed on homeowners struggling during the recession and who has been accused of running a “foreclosure machine.”

“Sean Duffy is leaving Wausau behind and embracing Donald Trump’s revolving door between Wall Street and Washington. While Duffy promised Wisconsin voters Trump would ‘drain the swamp’ in Washington he is now cozying up to the corporate lobbyists, big banks, and Wall Street insiders who will be calling the shots and writing the rules in Washington to make a rigged system work for them.” Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby said on Thursday.
