Wisconsin doles out $577,000 in overtime to governorís security staff

Oh how nice.

MADISON, Wis. ó Taxpayers paid out more than $577,000 to nine current and former members of Gov. Scott Walkerís security team last year after a federal agency found the state had wrongly withheld overtime pay from them.

The payouts cover a period of time, from May 2013 to May 2015, when Walker frequently traveled for his presidential run, according to the State Patrol. Walkerís campaign and political organizations paid the airfare and hotel costs of the security team during that time, but not the state troopersí salaries.

State officials were forced to make the payments because the federal Department of Labor determined the State Patrolís payment systems were flawed and had wrongly withheld overtime pay from the security team. It worked with the state to calculate what was owed over the two-year period it reviewed.

Four sergeants received the lionís share in overtime payments, about $320,000 in all. Three others were paid between $62,000 and $66,000 each, one was paid about $55,000 and one was paid about $10,000
