Obama Campaign Stiffs Vermont Police Department

Alternate title: rich guy who raises lots of money off $35,800 a plate dinners is too cheap to pay his fair share

(Fox News) Trevor Whipple, the police chief in South Burlington (Vermont), told Fox News that his department incurred $4,200 in overtime expenses as a result of separate fundraising events featuring President Obama and the First Lady.

“At the end of the day, I’ve submitted an invoice and they haven’t paid,” Whipple told Fox News. “It was an additional burden on our taxpayers, on our budget and we simply wanted to ask that they reimburse us.”

May not seem much to Obama, but that is needed money for this small Vermont town. And, apparently, Team Obama is stuffing Burlington, Vt, as well.

For a guy who whines about everyone paying their fair share, PBO sure is a miser, eh?

“The president is the president wherever he goes and whatever he does,” Vermont Democratic Party Chairman Jake Perkinson told Fox News. “I don’t think there’s any credible reason to be nickel and diming the security of the President of the United States or his family.”

So they why not stop nickel and diming the towns? Dems always want Someone Else to pay, never themselves.

    A typical 1%er stealing bread from the mouths of the 99%. Isn’t that how the narrative goes?

  2. Imagine if this was a Republican : media would be all over it.

    Yes, Obama is personally doing this because he hates small towns in Vermont.

      You sure that isn’t a typo in your name? That first “a” maybe shoulda been an “o”? The campaign needs to pay its bills for campaign appearances. Police overtime is an expense. Nothing “personal” about it.

      Sometimes public shame prompts those on the Left to do what’s right, since they have no shame of their own.

    There are laws in every state for skipping out on paying for a service.

    Vermont should issue a warrant. 😉

    Actually, this does show the contempt Obama has for others. This is a small town and the Obama campaign treats them as serfs.


    (BTW Teach, the link to the story seems to be broken.)

    And as a second btw, have a Happy Easter.

    so, if this is how he treats his friends, how do you think he’ll treat this country that he hates?
