Democrats Remove 'America' from DNC Finale

To be precise, the Democrats have removed “Bank of America” from communications regarding the name of the stadium at which Obama will deliver his Second Greek Column Address in Charlotte, NC. But Bank of America, which is headquartered in North Carolina, paid money that Obama probably thinks it didn’t earn for the rights to have the stadium called “Bank of America Stadium.”

National Democrats have repeatedly touted their stand against taking corporate money for their convention in September, and so it was striking to see two emails from the DNC host committee referring to the Charlotte venue where President Obama will speak as [sic] “Panthers Stadium.”

It’s the place where the Panthers play, but it’s actually called Bank of America stadium.

A recent email from the host committee signed by former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile urged people to win a trip to Charlotte for the event, which will wrap “Thursday night at Panthers Stadium with President Obama.”

Another email in June made the same pitch about the stadium.

A host committee spokeswoman didn’t respond to an email.
