Four years late: Obama campaign pays its bill to cash-strapped NV school district
As the President crisscrosses the country in his bid for re-election, holding campaign rallies and fundraisers in towns and cities across America, local governments keep attempting ‚ÄĒ and failing ‚ÄĒ to get his campaign to pay its event-related expenses.
In Las Vegas, however, taxpayers ‚ÄĒ who for nearly four years had been on the hook for about $25,000 ‚ÄĒ finally received some reimbursement late last month.
It was ‚ÄĒ coincidentally enough ‚ÄĒ on the very day that the Clark County School District finally released to Nevada Journal district invoices and other public records for the Obama campaign‚Äôs 2008 use of district facilities.
When now-President Obama was merely candidate Obama, Nevada was a swing-vote state and a political battleground. Candidate Obama flew in and out of Las Vegas often, holding political rallies at local high schools ‚ÄĒ and leaving unpaid expenses behind....
"‚ÄúIt‚Äôs an atrocious waste of taxpayer money,‚ÄĚ said David Tuerck, a government ethics watchdog with Suffolk University. ‚ÄúThere is no taxpayer interest in any of this. It‚Äôs all about getting him re-elected, and the campaign should pay for everything"
Ooohh Perhaps towns and cities need to remember that Democrats don't pay their bills!!
