Springfields budget director says the city is out of options to be reimbursed for expenses associated with hosting then-Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign stop in the fall of 2008. Short of suing the campaign, which isnt really going to do anything it would drag on forever theres really nothing we can do, said Bill McCarty. Weve tried.. Obama introduced his running mate, Joe Biden, at the Old State Capitol in August 2008. About 160 police officers and nine civilians helped provide protection for Obamas visit, according to an invoice from the city. Obamas presidential campaign was sent a bill for $68,139, but still owes $55,457. The city has tried for years to collect.
Thats what theyget for trusting the A-hole to begin with.
What is even funnier is this question How many other cities are in the same boat and saying nothing.
all public money is 0’s once he became King
When all else fails in Springfield, call Homer, Bart, Marge, Lisa and Maggie. After all, Barack Obama has called on Big Bird to save the Democrats and his traitorous presidency.
Matt Groenig could turn Springfield’s valid financial claim against Obama into a Simpsons’ episode that no one will forget.
With the formal support of the idiot, “throw the bums out” half of Congress, Obama poured trillions from the U.S. Treasury down the toilet with nothing at all to show for it. Springfield should have been paid first and is right to pursue this.
Silly city-—the buck$ don’t stop at Springfield? Just be glad your wonderful king BOZerO honored you with his presence. Now pony, errrrr donkey up your own funds. Tax your own rich 1%’ers.
Hey Springsteenfield-—consider the debt as a write off campaign contribution to re-elect your TOTUS. Besides he’s a son of ILLinois you promoted as an unqualified, affirmative action senator. He bees family.
Let’s see—the rest of us are stuck with a 16 trillion bill and Stinkfield is complaining about a measly 55.5/k tab?
Sue him personally on Jan. 21 when he’s Joe Average Citizen.
If each person in the county who voted for Obama would just contribute one dollar, they would have almost enough to pay off the debt.
Lay down with dogs, get up with fleas.
If any are in your employ——terminate them.
