The Clinton campaign needs to call, and get their score.

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.
