A major Denver event planning company says the Alabama Democratic delegation still owes it about $60,000 for work performed in September at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
Invoices show the agreed upon cost was about $100,000. The Alabama Democrats paid about $40,000 up front, agreeing to pay the balance at the conclusion of the convention. Wright says Bradley Davidson, the executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party, shook his hand and promised the money would be paid in Charlotte.
And I shook (Davidsons) hand and he said, 100 percent youre getting the money, and he guaranteed it, Wright said.
But Wright says the promises from Davidson and the Alabama Democrats have not panned out.
Do you feel like youre getting stiffed? Wright was asked. Yeah, definitely, he responded, nearly two months after the convention. Theyre deadbeats. Its unbelievable. I cant believe theyre doing this. Its really disheartening.
Asked if it was a partisan issue, Wright responded that he is a native of Canada and as a resident alien cannot vote in the United States.
Wright believes the Alabama Democrats simply didnt raise as much money from their events in Charlotte as they had hoped, and are now trying to pass those losses along to vendors.

Never saw THAT coming...
It’s their own stupid fault.
You never ever work for politicians on credit.
You always get your money up front.
If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.

These Democrats don’t seem so interested in spreadin’ it around when it comes to their own money.
Actually I believe that if you don't get the payment up front it becomes a campaign contribution and from the sound of this a very large and somewhat illegal one.
I’m not even sure the Dems have paid off all of Hubert Humphrey’s debts from the ‘68 campaign...
well that was unexpected. I mean I never expected the dems to cough up the 40K let alone the rest.
Any vendors, who render services on credit to the Democrats with their dead-beat reputation, deserve to be stung. Hillary may still owe bills from her primary run in ‘08, and Obama will do the same. It’s the Democrat entitlement attitude that makes them stick it to “the little people.”
Sue them—get this out into the open where they cannot hide.
