Cheapskates At DNC Refuse To Reimburse Town For Obama Visit
This is becoming a pattern. It’s happened many, many times. I find it rather interesting that the DNC doesn’t care that much about the fiscal soundness of the towns Obama visits and are unwilling to spread their own wealth around
(Fox News) The Democratic National Committee has informed a Connecticut town it will not be reimbursed for the thousands of dollars the city spent on costs for President Obama’s fundraising visit earlier this month.
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 Sherwood Island State Park 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.
Obama raised about $2 million during that fundraiser, one in which he breezed in and breezed out without bothering to really visit the town itself. But, then, in Obama’s World, everyone else is here to serve him.
I’m sure liberals will argue that the money is no big deal, it’s not that much, but, if it was their own money, I’d bet their tune would change. I’m sure they’ll have no problem with the $495,000 in Stimulus money the Obama admin. wasted to push “green” jobs by advertising on a network which few watch and which created zero jobs.
