Hillary bill

Stiffed by a Clinton

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is now $20 million in debt and some of her unpaid bills are in Indiana.

Clinton's biggest Indiana debt is owed to Indiana University where the Democratic candidate for president spoke at Assembly Hall on April 25.

According to a filing with the Federal Election Commission made this week, her campaign owes I.U. over $19,000. But the university said that's just part of the bill.

Former President Bill Clinton spoke at I.U. on April 2 and Chelsea Clinton was there in late March. Altogether, the costs for sound equipment, security and other needs total more than $55,000 according to university spokesman Larry McIntyre.

McIntyre said that the university may be forced to eat the cost of the Clinton visits. He said the university knew there was a risk and thought it was worth it as an educational experience for the students.

Shouldn't there be some kind of mechanism to keep deadbeats out of the White House? Oh, wait, there is, the very mechanism that turns them into deadbeats. Winners can pay their bills.

That'd be a fun case for a collections attorney.
