Iowa police departments frustrated at Clinton Campaigns unpaid bills

Last edited Sun Mar 13, 2016, 10:13 PM - Edit history (1)

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa -- The Clinton campaign says as soon as they receive an invoice, they'll pay the Des Moines Police Department for the services they provided at the Katy Perry concert last October. City Hall provided us a copy of the invoice that has already been sent. The invoice is dated November 19, 2015. The bill is nearly $1,800.

The Marshalltown Police Department is dealing with the same problem. “We have requested reimbursement from the Clinton campaign. We haven`t received that payment yet,” said Marshalltown Police Chief Michael Tupper.

Former President Bill Clinton was in Marshalltown on January 15, and he requested and received security assistance from the police. The Marshalltown Police Department has not been paid for the services they provided that day.

...Donald Trump also held an event in Marshalltown on the same day as Hillary Clinton. The cost of those services provided by Marshalltown police was about $3,600. Tupper says Trump’s check arrived today. “In my 23 year career, the Trump campaign actually paying this large bill is the first time that`s happened to me in my career,” said Tupper. “I’ve been doing this job for 23 years and quite honestly the Trump campaign actually reimbursing for these kinds of expenses is the first time that’s ever happened to me in my entire career, with one exception.” Tupper says the one exception is Bernie Sanders, who also had an event in Marshalltown in January and made arrangements to pay up front.

Trumps campaign was willing to pay their bills to the local department. Sanders paid for everything upfront. So why hasn't Clintons campaign bothered paying their bills yet?

The most hilarious thing is the first paragraph - Her campaign tried smearing the Des Moines department saying that they never bothered sending a invoice for payment, so they never actually 'knew' what they owed. But, well... turns out the department had a copy of the invoice that was sent to her campaign last year, so... whoops?.

1. She had the same problem in 2008

I would say it was probably just an oversight, but based on the fact that her 2008 campaign also failed to pay vendors on time it gives me pause about her ability to manage the federal budget. You would think she would have learned from 2008.

Did she ever pay off all of her 2008 debt and pay her vendors back? I would assume so, but I don't remember ever hearing that all of her debt was paid off.

3. Who "hears" that "all of her debt was paid off?"

You "hear" if it WASN'T.

7. No, you don't. Generally, it's only news if debts remain unpaid.

I'm sure her fans wouldn't miss an opportunity to note if she didn't pay bills from eight years ago.

Still, there was a purpose in dropping innuendo, wasn't there?

14. LOL--did it ever???

It's in front of the hotel door in the morning, but a newspaper?

More like a light "infotainment" TV show...on paper!


Look, you look hard enough, you'll find any story "reported." It didn't make the Five Big Headlines on the Nightly News, though.

6. Got it

Now that you mention it I vaguely remember hearing that. I am glad to know she finally paid it back, and I hope her small vendors did not have to wait 5 years to get paid. I remember she said they would be given priority.

I wonder if she paid it off using the money from the speeches, since I don't remember her continuing to raise money after becoming SOS. I am pretty sure I donated a little bit to her repayment fund after the election, but I never got asked again so I assumed she had paid it off.

9. That's right, I vaguely remember reading that

I forgot that she was so adamant about not running again. Has she said what changed her mind?

11. Petty

It's not like the candidate has anything to do with these minuscule reimbursements. Can we get any more petty?

17. I'll bet we could, and we probably will!!

Which is unfortunate...because we really should be trying to remain at least half way civil!

I'm not going to hold my breath, though.

Oh look....

I was right!

15. HRC Campaign is stiffing vendors. Seems to be a pattern when she runs. The campaign is

running on vapors.
