Want a protest permit? That'll be $15-million

One more in FitzWalkerstan: 

Madison - Gov. Scott Walker's administration could hold demonstrators liable for costs for extra police presence or cleanup and repairs following protests at the Capitol, under a new policy unveiled Thursday.

Using FitzWalker math, that would have been $15-million for the protests last winter and spring -- $8M for police and $7M for putting tape on the walls.

And this is not a proposal, but a rule the Walker administration just announced and will put into full effect in two weeks.

Recall, anyone?
