A bill for a Clinton Campaign appearance at UC Davis in January remains unpaid. UC Davis is moving the debt to collections. Ms. Clinton has not covered the campaign debt and media pundits have not pounced. Neither John McCain nor Barack Obama has said two words about the “accounting oversight”. The time may be at hand.
The expense is reported as $11,112 topped by security, cleanup and marching band expenses. When the Clinton campaign press office was called and reminded about the debt, the campaign refused to return calls.
UC Davis is planning to put its final bill out this week, and if the debt has not been settled within a month, they are going to turn the matter over to a collection agency. The appearance of former president Bill Clinton attracted 7500 people to the audience.
The appearance was designed as an outreach to young voters, a demographic that put Senator Obama over the top in Iowa. “America is not a race. America is not a creed. America is not even a place. America is an idea and you all are a part of it,” noted former president Bill Clinton.
Ms. Clinton has plenty of campaign expenses and the fact remains that this expense could have been overlooked. The public won’t overlook the oversight for long. Despite the fact that Ms. Clinton has been lagging in the contributions department somewhat, she has plenty of net worth to cover this debt. It would be better for the nation’s candidate “millionairess” to handle this debt before she is publicly labeled as a “deadbeat”.
Considering that she has already put this label on plenty of impoverished men in the past that have had trouble paying their child support, the deadbeat label being attached to Hillary Clinton is a tidy bit of poetic justice.
