City Says Going After 55K From Obama Camp is Waste of Time


The City of Springfield is throwing in the towel on collecting $55,000 it is owed for expenses related to a campaign stop here in 2008 by then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.

 

The city incurred huge overtime costs for police and other personnel for that stop, in which Obama introduced Joe Biden as his running mate.

 

City budget director Bill McCarty tells the State Journal-Register that the city has tried everything it can think of to collect the bill, and thinks further efforts would be a waste of time.

 

It’s been unclear who is actually responsible for the security costs… the Obama campaign or the Secret Service.
