Furiously Campaigning for the Presidency, Scott Walker Travels on the Wisconsin Taxpayers' 'Dime'

Disclaimer:  The above dollar figures are wholly made up but probably not too far off the mark.

The dates, locations, and events, on the other hand, are all factual.

Taxpayers will pay for security for all of Scott Walker's travels.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 3/4/2015)
Security for Walker and others cost $1.75 million from July 2013 to June 2014, Gottlieb said. That includes salaries, fringe benefits and some other costs, but not airfare, hotel and other travel costs.  (According to this article, the cost was $2,230,000 in 2013 -- up 239% from 2010.  Will Walker blame Doyle for not spending more time out of the state?)
