From the L.A. Times, Hillary Clinton campaign stiffs her high school $3,161

Now, it looks from new Federal Election Commission filings that Clinton's campaign had $8.7 million in outstanding debt at the end of last month.  Ouch!  And that included $3,361 owed to Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Ill., for renting the Watson Auditorium and for catering.

Hillary Rodham graduated from there in 1965.

On the eve of Super Tuesday on Feb. 5, Clinton staged a big town hall meeting from the Maine South High School auditorium that was broadcast nationally on the Hallmark Channel, allowing supporters across the country to ask questions live.  Maybe you saw it.  Millions did.

But campaigns move on. And her alma mater is still awaiting its money.

Seriously? Her high school?

Lord help us.

I guess she's doing her own version of McCain's biography tour except instead of just lying about her record and praising the people and institutions who made her what she is she's leaving IOUs.

The only 3AM calls she's getting are from collection agencies.

Look out Wellesley and Yale! You're next!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
