With a treasury secretary that doesn’t pay his taxes and numerous other cabinet appointees withdrawing over similar ‘oversights’, I’m not surprised to learn that the DNC doesn’t pay their bills either. The Chicago Sun Times reported on Friday that the DNC has yet to pay the city for the Obama victory bash it threw back on November 4th. The outstanding balance is $1.74 million and with the city of Chicago facing over a $50 million budget shortfall, that money could prove helpful in saving jobs, you know that little ‘three letter word‘ President Obama made one of the cornerstones of his campaign. Am I expected to believe that the same DNC that spent over $760 million dollars on the Obama campaign doesn’t have $1.74 million to pay for the huge pat on the back party it threw? According to opensecrets.org the Obama campaign as of December 31, 2008 still had over $15 million in campaign contributions in their possession, so why has this debt gone unpaid? If this behavior were practiced by anyone outside of the government they would be thrown in jail. Somehow these dead beats not only avoid prosecution, they’re now lecturing us on fiscal responsibility. Ridiculous.
