08:20 AM ET 09.25 | Not only is E. Gordon Gee making millions as president of Ohio State University, but the school also spends handsomely for him beyond the paycheck. Since returning to Columbus as the university's president in October 2007, the 68-year-old Gee has pulled in $8.6 million in salary and compensation, making him the highest paid CEO of a public university in the country. But his expenses -- hidden among hard-to-get records that the university took nearly a year to release -- tally nearly as much: $7.7 million. ... The university spends tens of thousands of dollars alone branding Gee around his signature bow ties. Since 2007, Ohio State has spent more than $64,000 on bow ties, bow tie cookies and O-H and bow tie pins for Gee and others to distribute.
