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 â€” and failing â€” to get his campaign to pay its event-related expenses.
In Las Vegas, however, taxpayers â€” who for nearly four years had been on the hook for about $25,000 â€” finally received some reimbursement late last month.
It was â€” coincidentally enough â€” on the very day that the Clark County School District finally released to Nevada Journal district invoices and other public records for the Obama campaignâ€™s 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 â€” and leaving unpaid expenses behind....
"â€śItâ€™s an atrocious waste of taxpayer money,â€ť said David Tuerck, a government ethics watchdog with Suffolk University. â€śThere is no taxpayer interest in any of this. Itâ€™s 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!!
