Capitol Police chief gets $111,000, and five-figure shady bonus to bash rights for Scott Walker

Chief David Erwin is a slime, real shocker.

Erwin moved from a ghostjob and back to grab himself an extra gift from Wisconsin taxpayers—an $11,680 annual raise to his $111,067 a year gig.

Erwin is what Paul Ryan calls a "taker."

Gov. Scott Walker's administration rewarded the new hardline Capitol Police chief and his top deputy with double-digit pay raises earlier this year after moving the pair on paper to phantom jobs for two weeks and then back to their real posts.

Chief Dave Erwin — who has overseen a crackdown on Walker protesters at the statehouse — received an overall salary hike of 11.7%, to $111,067 a year, the same rate as his predecessor. That amounts to an $11,680 annual raise.

That hefty raise was possible only because Walker officials transferred Erwin on Feb. 5 to a ghostposition in the state Department of Administration, according to a copy of the transfer letter obtained by the Journal Sentinel. Then, on the same day, he was shuffled back to his real job as head of the Capitol Police force.
