It figures. This is what happens when you run out of other people’s money.

Acting state Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Worley lowered her head and slowly shook it side to side when summing up the financial condition of her once powerful party.
“We’re broke, broke, broke,” Worley told the party’s Executive Board in a special called meeting Frida.
How broke is broke? Worley didn’t sugar coat the answer.
“This is my 18th day as chair and thirty minutes after I took over on April 22nd the landlord of the building where our party headquarters are came in and said he wanted us out, that the rent was overdue and was always overdue,” said Worley.
Next came the water company with a message, said Worley: pay up by the next day or we’re cutting off the water. Next came the same warning from Alabama Power. Next came news from banks that party credit cards had been maxed out and were now cancelled.
Daniel Greenfield added, “Apparently spending money you don’t have doesn’t work too well when you can’t just print your own money. But maybe the Alabama Democratic Party can get some budget tips from Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman.”
The Alabama Democrats are at least $500,000 in debt.
