METAPHOR ALERT: Obama stiffs California city $35,000 while Romney pays his bill. “Here’s how much financial trouble Barack Obama’s presidential campaign appears to be in: He’s stiffing the California city of Newport Beach $35,000 for extra security costs incurred when the campaigner-in-chief held a fundraiser in the oceanfront community early this year. The bill is already nearly two months overdue.”
Advice to future venues: Demand cash up front.
UPDATE: Durham, New Hampshire, too.
