That’s how much the state of Wisconsin paid two Republican law firms — including the firm where RNC Chair Reince Priebus is a partner — for legal work just this year. The firms charged Wisconsin’s taxpayers as much as $395 per hour. Much of this money was spent defending Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) anti-collective bargaining bill that was struck down by a lower court before being reinstated 4-3 in a party-line vote by the state Supreme Court.
