    And funny since the OP does not mention the places where the GOP did not pay... like it has been shown above.. seems more like the usual selective outrage by the GOP.

    Amazing! The guy raises 2 million dollars and the DNV refuses to reimburse the city for the costs it incurred during a fundraising stop.



    And apparently there is a pattern of this...



    Is the DNC hurting for money this bad?
    Does the RNC act similarly?

    Did you read the link?

    It wasnt about the romney campaign not paying for costs incurred to the city for services used, but a local GOP HQ not having enough cash to pay the rent at a few of their offices... this should be handled, but it isnt the same thing

    Re: DNC refuses to reimburse town for thousands of dollars of overtime costs during O

    Gordon Joseloff, the first selectman of Westport, says he was informed this week the town's request to have the DNC and Obama for America cover the $14,812 the city paid in police and fire overtime was denied. The president traveled to the area on Aug. 6 to attend a fundraiser in Stamford and a $35,800 per person dinner at the Westport home of movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

    This isn't the first time local officials have gotten in a dispute over payments for security costs to accommodate presidential candidates. The city of Newport Beach, Calif., for months has been trying to get the Obama campaign to pay $35,000 in security costs for a fundraiser earlier this year. According to the Los Angeles Times, though, the Romney campaign did reimburse the city for security costs at a Republican fundraiser.
    Personal security for the Globalist Elite Traitors is getting expensive.

    This is good news. *clasps hands*

    Obama thinks government services are free; it's "government money", so it's not like anyone paid.

    Here, how about this:

    Minn. Counties Waiting For State GOP To Pay Bills CBS Minnesota

    The GOP in Minnesota is hurting for cash, largely because of their own stupidity. They are in danger of being evicted from their headquarters because they've neglected to pay their rent.

    So now we have proof about the GOP.
    That's the state party, not the RNC. Moreover it is Minnesota, a notoriously corrupt state -- the state GOP should have done like the Dems, and spent their money buying votes instead of trying to prevent fraud and get an honest vote count.

    Still Republicans

    If they were trying to prevent fraud, I'd buy this. Otherwise, it's just partisan BS. Please come back when you have something useful to add to the situation.

    The recount in question was for the governor's race. Can you prove fraud? Neither could they. More like sore loser. Think Al Gore.

    The best solution: "No, Mr. President/Senator/Congressman. The city will not provide extra police and fire protection for your visit. Please make arrangements for SS to provide additional security or be prepared to commission off-duty officers out of your own pocket."

    Re: DNC refuses to reimburse town for thousands of dollars of overtime costs during O

    These are not government functions, so why did the city bother to do security? These are private fundraisers. Pay up front for the police, or provide your own security. That will never happen because the local town was looking to do some ass kissing to the potential president, and now they don't want to pay for their ass kissing. Next time say no. Sort of like when newt gingrich writes you a check despite being notorious for bouncing checks across his career you say "Cash only Mr. Gingrich." Just like any person who bounces checks for services gets told. believe me, when towns start telling the candidates to pay up front or not to bother they will get their money up front. What are the candidates going to do, not have a fundraiser or campaign?

    oh, and anyone who thinks it is just the dems who does this is drinking way too much of the kool aid.
