Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican presidential candidate, was meeting with potential voters in New Hampshire on Monday when he was tricked into taking an embarrassing photo.
Walker initially agreed to take a photo with a man holding a “Walker 4 President” sign — but he didn’t realize there was a message hidden on the other side. Before the photo was snapped, the prankster turned over the sign.
The flip-side of the sign featured a fake check made out to Walker for $900 million, courtesy of the “Koch Bros.,” a reference to the billionaires David and Charles Koch, who have vowed to drop large sums of money in the 2016 presidential election.

The wealthy Koch brothers are reportedly looking at Walker, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio as possible candidates to support in 2016.
