DNC still hasn't paid city of Chicago for Obama Rally.... Doesn't Obama still have campaign money he could pay his own city back?

Chicago Sun-Times
February 20, 2009
BY FRAN SPIELMAN

Chicago has yet to recoup the $1.74 million cost of President Obama's victory celebration in Grant Park -- despite a burgeoning $50.5 million budget shortfall that threatens more layoffs and union concessions.
"The Democratic National Committee has not yet paid us,'' Peter Scales, a spokesman for the city's Office of Budget and Management, said Thursday after questions from the Chicago Sun-Times. "We're reaching out to them this week."

  • "Come on the city of Chicago could really use the money DNC"

    WHAT???? I live in Illinois and my city is in worse financial trouble than Chicago!!!! Why the heck would they need more money than anyone else. THEY were the ones that supported this and DNC didn't set it up it was CHICAGO and they were the ones that did it. WHY would the DNC have to pay when other candidates in the past used what their Committies wanted them to use and have a smaller group of people. I think that the corrupt Illinois government(Chicago politcians)want to milk all the money they can for what they think they deserve!!! My opinion and if you don't like it SO WHAT
