Today Barack Obama will return to hold a rally at the Clark County School District, the same district he stiffed for $25,000 for four years.
They better demand a check first.
The Nevada Journal reported:
President Barack Obama is set to hold a campaign rally at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas on Wednesday, his first visit to Southern Nevada since Nevada Journal revealed that his campaign left taxpayers here on the hook for the costs of events at local public schools.
Obama’s campaign, Obama for America (OFA), left the Clark County School District with nearly $25,000 in unpaid bills from two rallies at Bonanza and Coronado high schools in 2008.
Neither CCSD nor the Obama campaign would confirm for Nevada Journal the campaign’s plans to pay for Wednesday’s event.
In 2008, CCSD billed the Obama campaign $53,116.12 for the Bonanza and Coronado rallies. Obama for America originally paid $28,484.40 of the bill, but left $24,631.72 unpaid.
That remainder was not paid until June 2012, following multiple Nevada Journal inquiries. The bill was for 500 hours of school police officer overtime, providing extra security for the rallies.
As Victor Joecks added:
“Obama’s quick to call for funding education with other people’s money, but takes four years to pay his campaign’s bill to the Clark County School District.
In contrast, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio have spoken at Clark County School District properties recently, and the Romney campaign has already paid its bill.”
Don’t expect the Democrat-media complex to report on this.
