Three checks sent out from President Barack Obamas campaign headquarters in Chicago have been stolen a total of $50,000, according to a TV news report and police are investigating.
Three checks we sent to vendors made it into the wrong hands, and after learning of this, we notified the police, said Obamas Midwest press secretary, Ben Finkenbinder in a written statement. Were pleased that theyre dealing with the issue swiftly, and dont expect this to have any impact upon the campaign.
The Obama campaign would not confirm the total amount of the checks but FOX Chicago News reported campaign staffers called police Wednesday to report a theft of about $50,000 in checks intended to pay for campaign expenses.
Obamas headquarters are in the Prudential Building, overlooking Grant Park, at 130 E. Randolph. Asked about the Obama campaign theft, Chicago Police would only confirm that they are investigating a theft in the 100 block of East Randolph.
Party this weekend, good job boys!
Peeps redistributing 0’s stash.
Not stolen, redistributed.
Oh so THAT’s how the money came to be spent on cocaine and a male prostitute.
Bank of Riyadh or Caracas?
That explains the mysterious first class airplane ticket to Chicago I got in the mail this evening.
The money is probably some kind of pay-off, and they’re just claiming it is stolen money.
They just stiffed some vendors. When will people learn that democrats don’t have to pay bills.
Haha! I hope these get cashed in Burkina Faso or somewhere similar. Props to whoever got a hold of them.
Campaign with dogs, wake up with fleas.
They couldn’t pay the bill, so they lied! What’s new.... This will put off whomever they owe this $50,000 to. Hey, it’s in the mail but it got stolen. Dems lie!
Just a bunch of people following Obama’s philosophy of redistribution of wealth..they are going to take that cash and spread it around just like Obama said
This I pray. Amen.
I tried to cash one but it bounced.... /S
First of all, we're talking checks, not cash. Nothing happens until the thief tries to cash the checks.
Second, how much is $50k to the Obama campaign? In 2008, he went through about three quarters of a billion getting elected.
and "somebody stole the checks"
