It seems that the undercurrent of stories that the Hillary Clinton campaign is late on paying its bills is spreading from the conservative sites to the media in general. To use a leftist site as a source, The Huffington Post has the story:
Cash Strapped Clinton Fails To Pay Bills
Hillary Rodham Clinton’s cash-strapped presidential campaign has been putting off paying hundreds of bills for months — freeing up cash for critical media buys, but also earning the campaign a reputation as something of a deadbeat in some small business circles.
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.
That’s hardly the only source (and The Huffington Post was citing Politico), and a google search of “cash-strapped Clinton” returned 2,920 hits this evening, some of which are from the professional news media; my guess is that this story will hit The Washington Post on Monday.
As the superdelegates consider what they are going to do — though I’ve already said that they’re going to break for Senator Barack Obama — the fact that Mr Obama can raise much more money than Mrs Clinton will have an impact on them.
