Newly released records show Attorney General Brad Schimel has spent about $83,000 on promotional items during his term, including bags, pistol cases and candy. 

Invoices obtained through an open records request show Schimel spent $6,269 on messenger bags, another $6,000 on pistol cases in 2015 and nearly $3,200 on candy. 

The spending includes about $10,000 for coins promoting Schimel's "kicking ass every day" mantra. 

Wisconsin Department of Justice spokesman Johnny Koremenos said Schimel has held 187 conferences for 10,000 law enforcement professionals but has started re-training employees who handle promotional purchases to "ensure they're good stewards of state resources."
