...guess who would have carried on that tradition?
This was a desperate guy who wanted it all....
Photographer Andrew Snow, assigned to trail Walker at events and snap images of the candidate, collected $11,700 a month -- on pace to make $140,000 a year.Still my favorite line comes from Rick Wiley, Walker's campaign manager:
Alyson Higgins, a personal aide to Tonette Walker, the governor’s wife, was allocated a salary of $89,000.
At the helm was communications director Kirsten Kukowski, making $18,000 a month for an annual salary of more than $220,000.
AshLee Strong, Kukowski’s communications deputy, was to make $164,000.
And even Walker’s own children got into the campaign casino windfall. Twenty-one-year-old Matt Walker and 20-year-old Alex Walker, who indicated they would take time off from college to campaign for their father … Each drew monthly stipends of $1,542, placing them on pace to draw $18,509 annually.
