IU Waiting For Clinton To Pony Up, And They're Not Alone

Last updated on Friday, May 23, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON) - New York Senator Hillary Clinton is in the hole to Indiana University.

In a report published by the Bloomington Herald Times, the Clinton campaign owes Indiana University more than $55,000 dollars for appearances by her, Bill and Chelsea.

In what has become almost an epidemic, Clinton has not paid for her campaign's 3 uses of the IU Assembly Hall, when both her and her husband took up half of the main hall, and Chelsea took up the foyer area.

For months now, various contractors have been complaining of unpaid bills by the Hillary Clinton campaign, mostly as a result of her inability to raise sufficient cash during the race, and even having to invest more than $10 million of her own dollars.

Two companies in Ohio claim Clinton owes them a combined $25,000, and bills are also owed to caterers, landlords, cleaners and the like.

What's more worrisome, the Los Angeles Times reports Clinton has added $9.5 million in unpaid bills just in the month of May so far, and is $21 million behind in total.
