    ....This lien, which opens the way for a forced sale of Doral unless it’s paid off, was filed Aug. 9 by Straticon LLC, the Martin County-based construction firm in charge of part of the $255 million renovation of the famed country club.

  • Taxpayers on the hook for Romney rally costs (2012 Flashback/Romney confronted today)

    NORTH CANTON The campaign of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has declined to reimburse the city and Stark County about $14,500 that local officials say they incurred to provide security, firefighter coverage and other services for Romney’s Oct. 26 rally at Hoover High School. With the U.S. Secret Service saying it does not cover such costs, it appears that local taxpayers are on the hook for much of that amount. The campaign is also declining to pay the more than $600 in police and fire overtime costs North Canton said it incurred for Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s appearance...

    Andrew Cuomo and his Kennedy ex-wife have battled for years over child support as 'he didn't make any payments' New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his ex-wife Kerry Kennedy have been reportedly battling for years over 'substantial' child support payments for their three daughters. According to the New York Post, for the past at least two years, the former couple has been involved in 'lawyer-assisted go-rounds over substantial amounts' of child support payments, and finally reached an agreement about some of the obligations two weeks ago. Sources told the Post that Cuomo, 58, and Kennedy, 56, continued to fight over...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina attacked "the left and their allies in the media" for a critical report released Monday that says her 2010 California Senate campaign mismanaged money and failed to pay vendors for their work. More than four years after the failed campaign, Fiorina still owed nearly half a million dollars to 30 entities. She didn't pay off her debt until January of 2015, just a few months before she launched her presidential bid. One of the outstanding payments due was to her political strategist Joe Shumate who died one month before Election Day as first reported by...

    Carly Fiorina's 2010 Senate campaign had a big problem with money. As our colleague Robert Samuels reported, it took years for Fiorina to settle about $500,000 worth of invoices after she lost the race in California -- despite reimbursing herself nearly $1.3 million she lent the campaign. Fiorina didn't pay the widow of her pollster at least $30,000 he was owed for his last paycheck after the race was lost. He died about a month before Election Day.

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is rebutting a Washington Post story that details a pattern of delayed payments to staff and contractors after her 2010 Senate campaign in California. According to the piece, Fiorina, the wealthy former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, waited until January, a few months before announcing her 2016 presidential bid, to settle most of the more than 30 invoices outstanding from her last campaign - a total of about $500,000. She was quicker to reimburse herself the $1.3 million she lent the campaign. Fiorina, when asked about the article Monday, dismissed it. "You know I don't think the...

This week the Washington Post has has been examining the financial reports from her unsuccessful 2010 California Senate bid and turned up what will no doubt come as troubling news. The famous businesswoman is renowned for handling and managing wealth, but when it came time to pay the bills racked up on the campaign trail some...

    Famed California pollster Joe Shumate was found dead in his home one month before Election Day 2010, surrounded by sheets of polling data he labored over for the flailing Senate bid of Carly Fiorina. Upon his death, Fiorina praised Shumate as “the heart and soul” of her team. She issued a news release praising him as a person who believed in “investing in those he worked with” and offering her “sincerest condolences” to his widow. But records show there was something Fiorina did not offer his widow: Shumate’s last paycheck, for at least $30,000. It was one of more than...

    Former Carly Fiorina political staffers refuse to work for her again after they weren't paid for YEARS (and she's worth $120 million!) Fiorina lost her first run for office, a 2010 bid for the US Senate in California. 'I'd rather go to Iraq than work for Carly Fiorina again,' said one high-level former campaign staffer. Fiorina super PAC spokesperson brushes if off, saying it's 'common' for political campaigns to have massive debts when they fold. Politics has a well-known revolving door, with candidates often rehiring consultants, strategists and vendors as they move from one campaign to the next. But for...

    Ex-staffers have harsh words for Republican presidential candidate. Carly Fiorina apparently left a trail of unpaid, unhappy campaign staffers after her unsuccessful 2010 U.S. Senate bid. According to Reuters, the former HP CEO and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful waited more than four years to give her campaign staff the compensation they were promised. “Federal campaign filings show that, until a few months before Fiorina announced her presidential bid on May 4, she still owed staffers, consultants, strategists, legal experts and vendors nearly half a million dollars,” Reuters reported. Twelve ex-Fiorina campaign workers told Reuters that, if given the chance to...

    There are some valid points raised in Lee Siegel's 1100 word rant against college loans (if not so much against college education). There are some bad ones. But two things are clear: the words "personal" and/or "responsibility" were used precisely zero times, and the op-ed writer, who described himself as "the author of five books who is writing a memoir about money", is hardly a glowing advertisement for an education attained (funded with either debt or equity) at one of the Ivy League's "best", Columbia University.That, or the return on money after spending nearly a decade in university and...

    And if Marian was willing to admit publicly in 2004 that she was not happy with Barack having a white mother, we can only surmise that Craig and Michelle must have gotten an earful about white people behind the closed doors of the Robinson home. After the release of the WTTW video, the question is: what kind of racist messages did the siblings hear from Mother Robinson while growing up?

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Casting House Republicans as stubborn deadbeats, President Barack Obama sought Thursday to discredit House Republicans in upcoming fiscal fights by painting them as roadblocks to a thriving middle class. **SNIP** “Shutting down the government just because I’m for keeping it open — that’s not an economic plan,” Obama said, wiping sweat from his face in a muggy port warehouse. “Threatening that you won’t pay the bills in this country, when we’ve already racked up those bills, that’s not an economic plan — that’s just being a deadbeat.”
