DNC refuses to reimburse town for thousands of dollars of overtime costs during Obama visit | Fox News
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...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.
Is the DNC hurting for money this bad?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.
