Politically Speaking: Hillary, belatedly, pays the bill
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
Lots of Siouxlanders had fond memories of seeing Democratic
prsidential candidate Hillary Clinton at the Sioux City Art Center on
Jan. 1. Art center director Al Harris-Fernandez, on the other hand,
had a bill he was trying for weeks to collect from the appearance.
Clinton appeared before an estimated 700 people on New Year's Day,
trying to nab more supporters before the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses. The
cost for the venue was $3,400 - $2,400 for the typical rental fee,
plus $1,000 more because Clinton's event ran long. Her Sioux City
campaign office closed shortly after the caucuses, so Harris-Fernandez
left phone messages and sent faxes trying to get payment.
