Wisconsinites air grievances for this past year at state Capitol

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Over 100 people showed up at the State Capitol Monday to observe Festivus, the made-up holiday from a 1997 "Seinfeld" episode.  

It was an "airing of the grievances" -- and many of those grievances targeted Republican Governor Scott Walker and his policies.  

The crowd gathered at a Festivus pole that's been in the Capitol Rotunda during the holiday season -- along with a nativity scene, a menorah, and a 25-foot Christmas tree.  

Protestor Greg Gordon put up the Festivus pole, but not all the grievances were about the governor. Folks also complained about not winning the lottery, homelessness, and Percy Jackson movies not being as good as his books.  

One person said the world needs more egg nog. Another said beer glasses need to be bigger.
