Hillary Clintons campaign has made little secret that it has been routinely outspent by rival Barack Obama in the extended race for the Democratic presidential nomination and has been forced to curtail checks for some of its vendors and staff.
But stiffing your high school alma mater?
Thats apparently the case, according to federal campaign disclosure reports that show that among more than $8.7 million listed as debts, the Clinton campaign owed $3,161 to Maine South High School in Park Ridge for renting the school for an event, as well as for catering.

"Cash-strapped Clinton fails to pay bills"

Hillary Rodham Clinton�s cash-strapped presidential campaign has been putting off paying hundreds of bills for months � freeing up cash for critical media buys but also earning the campaign a reputation as something of a deadbeat in some small-business circles.
A pair of Ohio companies owed more than $25,000 by Clinton for staging events for her campaign are warning others in the tight-knit event production community � and anyone else who will listen � to get their cash upfront when doing business with her. Her campaign, say representatives of the two companies, has stopped returning phone calls and e-mails seeking payment of outstanding invoices. One even got no response from a certified letter.
"Is Hillary broke"?

Scoop du jour? Sneed hears major money problems in the Clinton camp may soon become a coroner knocking on her campaign door.
To wit: Word is the cash feeding into Hillary Clinton's campaign coffers has not only slowed down in a big way, undisclosed campaign debts that have yet to be made public could signal the end and have insiders biting their nails.
"Hillary needs to raise money to stay alive," a top Dem source said.
So she spends and spends and then never pays the bill...
Well that alone makes her qualified to be President. :)
"Among the debts reported this month by Hillary Rodham Clintons struggling presidential campaign, the $292,000 in unpaid health insurance premiums for her campaign staff stands out."
Oh my. I can’t believe she stiffed her own HS. Nobody should open their doors to these grifters.

Believe it. These two carpetbagging criminals have stiffed virtually everyone around them. They are trash. Guess that makes them good, popular DemoRats.
maybe they need to hire geraldine ferraro back to raise some money
Why should one expect from her. She would steal candy from a baby.
She’s like any typical lib. She’s only good at spending OTHER people’s money.
“Shes like any typical lib. Shes only good at spending OTHER peoples money.”
No offense, bur our current Republican President and his cohorts in Congress haven’t been exactly thrifty either.
Well, it will be good if you don't pay any of your bills!
The Clintons: Stiff and Slick
Perfect for hosing America.
This keeps getting better and better and better.
Might Eliot Spitzer be interested in some...ACTION?
Bout time to hire the daughter for 1/2 million a yr at the TAX FREE/EXEMPT FOUNDATION?????
Any sane person would have dropped out of the race by now.
There’s gotta be some reason why the Hildabeast stays in this race. She must have some Ace up her sleave. She must have something that will whack Obama across the knee caps really good. Its like she is holding it until the very last moment for maximum effect. I can already see her setting the stage. She has announced that the delegates are not beholden to their constituents and that they can change their mind “for the right reasons,” and she states at almost every opportunity that Obie is not electable.
Me thinks that she will dropped the bomb on July 1st. I wanna take this opportunity to thank Rush for extending this Rat race beyond its original Texas deadline. It could’ve been over then. But thanks to RUSH and his little self promoting marketing gimmick, its not over yet.
“I can’t be responsible for every undercapitalized small business in America.” Hillary 1994
I'm amazed, though, that the campaign is not paying these bills. The Clintons could easily reach into any of those offshore or Swiss bank accounts they have and stave off this kind of embarrassment.
Maybe she’s saving her pennies to pay David Kendall?!
And she wants to run the country? Down the drain!
Time to start “pimping” out Chelsea?
Yuk, no thanks.
My husband, now deceased, went to Main Township South with Hillary and graduated the same year. He said she was a social climber at the time, thoroughly unattractive.
Maybe Maine Township Schools should take down her plaque from the wall and put it on Ebay. I bet they’ll make a hefty profit!
Hmmmmmmm. You’ve given me an idea.
