Dozens of TVs reported missing from uptown arena after DNC
WBTV ^ | 4/02/14 | Pamela Escobar

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Democratic National Convention has been over for 18 months, but it's still fresh in the mind of one company who filed a police report saying it can't find $75,000 worth of equipment. LG Electronics spoke with WBTV and explained why it decided to tell police now.

The DNC ended in September 2012. LG electronics based in New Jersey had hundreds and hundreds of displays for delegates and convention participants.

"A number of the products were sold on site and after the event. But the majority were returned to our warehouse they came back safe and sound," said John I. Taylor, a LG spokesperson.

After the DNC people packed up and left the Time Warner Cable Arena, but LG says somehow 72 of their tvs walked away. Taylor said during a convention it's not unusual to lose an item or two, but this was a lot.

Did they lose all the “W” keys from their keyboards, too?

LOL. That was juvenile, destructive and such but the juvenile HS prankster in me still found it funny. As I would have found keyboards w/o Zero's funny too.

the DNC, A National committee of thieves..

I imagine he pays them well enough when needed to keep them on the plantation. Or should I say ‘pays their handlers”.

LG should have demanded cash in full up front, minimum 90 days in advance of the convention, or NO merchandise or service period.

Then they could have contracted for partial refunds on undamaged merchandise returned to them at a LG set up redemption center.

LG TV's are smarter than their executives.

Of course that is chump change compared to Duke Energy writing off a 10M$ “loan” to the Democrat convention - http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2013/03/democratic-convention-corporate-money-duke-energy-loan

They also stripped Air Force one of anything that wasn’t basically bolted down. . .and even then tore off presidential seals from various bulkheads. . .caused over $70,000 in damages to Air Force One (I had as one of my T-37 students a guy that eventually flew the president and we talked about the damage and such).

Class act.

Drat.

At first I thought the headline said:

"Dozens of TV Reporters Missing From Uptown Arena After DNC"

Experienced rather pleasant imagery of the enemy eating its own.

OK guys, anybody see who took dozens of 55 inch televisions?....."WBTV reached out to the Democratic National Convention Committee for a comment about the missing items. An employee said she is working on tracking down someone who was in Charlotte for the convention."....... 35,000 delegates and visitors and no one from the DNC headquarters was there ?.... oh boy!

I would bet the Union workers at the convention hall walked them right out the back doors, and into the back seats of their cars.

You’d think that a company of that size would know better than to try appeasing Democrats. They are the Mafia without any sense of honor or constraint. I mean sure, half the board of these companies ARE democrats...but the other half likely isn’t. Or in the case of LG they are an international co. to begin with.

It would make more sense to me to work against the very people extorting you. But nothing in the world makes sense anymore. They can’t buy their way into or out of anything with Democrats. They can only be used and discarded.
