DNC Stiffs another town on overhead.

Somehow I am not surprised....I could make the comment that they should have been honored to host the Chicago Messiah.   It is like the DNC to stiff people....after all freeloading and mooching is what democrats are best at.

WESTPORT, Conn. (CBS Connecticut/AP) — Westport’s first selectman says the town has been informed it will not be reimbursed thousands of dollars for President Barack Obama’s visit for a fundraiser earlier this month.
First Selectman Gordon Joseloff says the Democratic National Committee notified the town it will not pay police and fire overtime costs totaling $14,812.
The town asked the DNC and Obama for America to pay the overtime costs incurred when the president arrived at 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.
The New Register reports that an executive of the Democratic National Committee wrote that as a private organization it did not participate in security, traffic control, fire or emergency planning. She referred questions to the Secret Service.
“I didn’t expect that we would get repayment, but it was worthwhile to ask,” Joseloff told the Register.


  1. Why not just bill Harvey Weinstein?
    It was his $35K per plat dinner that brought them there.
    $14,000 is less than half of what those rich 1%-ers paid for cold chicken.

  2. The Town should do that...but they won't..they might "offend" him and Hollywood is like Obama...you know.."Royalty" So the town will just eat the cost. I do know from what I have heard is that the RNC pays all their expenses.

  3. Of course the RNC does, that's what we stand for- paying what you owe.

    The DNC is all about getting the taxpayer to pay for your free chit.
