Democratic Convention Organizers Claim $500K of Lost Electronics

The Democratic National Convention may be long over, but its organizers have not forgotten the almost half a million dollars worth of electronics they seem to have lost.

Organizers of the Charlotte, N.C., convention have filed a police report for lost and stolen electronics, some of which they appear to have valued at as much as 62 times the listed market prices.

A reportedly stolen 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop? $75,537. The price listed on the Apple website is $1,199. A lost iPhone? $30,503. A lost Blackberry? $54,250.

The DNC did not respond to a request for comment.

Calls to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for elaboration on the report were not returned.

Other items reported to have gone missing at the convention included two iPads worth around $15,000 each, laptops listed at $40,000, $34,000 and $25,000 each, and other miscellaneous items worth far more than their list price.

The report claimed that 40 items were reported lost and one item – the most highly valued one, the $75,000 MacBook Pro – was stolen.

“Some kind of insurance scam....if you ask me. No insurance company is going to pay prices like this.”

Insurance companies probably will pay because it is the dnc, a great way to give them a half million dollars at the expense of their customers. Some dnc lackies were probably told “take it home we’re through with it”.

Actually, you're probably on to something here. The NSA might be the world's best back-up service.
