Vendors beware: Hillary Clinton is behind in her bills. The situation, as Politico.com notes is pretty serious.
A pair of Ohio companies owed more than $25,000 by Clinton for staging events for her campaign are warning others in the tight-knit event production community — and anyone else who will listen — to get their cash upfront when doing business with her. Her campaign, say representatives of the two companies, has stopped returning phone calls and e-mails seeking payment of outstanding invoices. One even got no response from a certified letter.
Shafting vendors is about as low you can get. How can Hillary ask people to make her CEO of the country when she can’t even manage the finances of her own campaign?
Vendors will probably have to wait months to get paid from the Clintons. Maybe they’ll have time to pay their bills when she drops out of the presidential race and before she runs for governor of New York.
Meanwhile, the Barack Obama fund-raising machine continues to roll over Clinton raising $40 million in March, more than twice as much as the New York senator.
