Walker 'Brown Bagging' never cost so much.

For Walker, Meals Aren't Always A 'Brown Bag'. From wcco.com

The campaign rang up bills of $244 at the Bay City Smokehouse in Green Bay, $230 and $193 at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Greenfield, $230 at the Capital Grille in Washington, D.C., and $149 at the Waterfront in La Crosse, among others. The campaign also paid bills of more than $30 apiece seven times at the Ambassador Hotel in Milwaukee.

If you are having meal a meal with 5 or 6 campaign staffers, this is fairly reasonable.

Are you saying Walker is the only politician who does this?

This is nothing compared to what Doyle has been doing. Everyone knows its "pay for play" with Doyle.

That's where the spotlight needs to be.

And the prof eats every meal at home? Nobody said he ate every meal from a brown bag. But it's desperation time and anyway to slam a guy that you have nothing on is about all thats left. Lets see what Dimond Jim spent on his last foray into govenorship.

Wow, they spent $60 ($803) than the West Bend School Board & Leadership Team ($743) at Timmers.

The difference is that the school board wasn't being hypocritical when they did it.

So fleecing the involuntary taxpayers vs. using voluntary campaign donations to forward the political aims of the campaign (which includes dinner meetings) the donation was intended for is hypocritical?

Wow.

Now I'm scratching my head.

At least with the Walker campaign, the dinners buys some good PR spin. With the West Bend School Board taxpayer it just buys them more slave time to tax freedom day.

That reminds me...need to make donation to Walker.
