What is a pol doing for $200,000?

I would rather ask what wouldn't a pol do for such an amount, but let's flow with the story:

A Pittsburgh woman is suing Democratic state Rep. Jake Wheatley, saying he only coughed up half of the $200 prize he promised the winner of a community day cake-baking contest.

Fifty-five-year-old Democrat Denise Robinson says the dispute isn't about the $100, it's about the principle.

The paralegal says, "If my state rep will breach a contract for $200, then what is he doing for $200,000."
Hm... the principle. The principle is... just a sec, it's about $100, isn't it? So there you are.
