MADISON — There was a lot of damage left behind after the union protests at the state Capitol in Madison last year – $200,000 in damage, to be exact!

That number has caused a bit of a problem. Last year, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s administration was in court, fighting a lawsuit that sought to open the building to the public.

A Department of Administration official claimed in court that protesters had already done $7.5 million in damage to the building and grounds.
