Why would you repay money to someone who forgave the loan ???
Scanzoni told The Huffington Post Friday that Duke’s involvement in the DNC was an “economic development event” for Charlotte.
Oh sorry, I forgot you believe in an "advantage" for your loser party.... Of course, all you had to do was agree on campaign reform for BOTH... but you didn't.

A lie? You mean like the lie that the DNC wouldn't take money from corporate sponsors for the Democratic convention?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Democratic_ ...

Funding

The Democratic Party announced in February 2011 that it would not accept corporate donations to fund the convention.[63] This decision was made to increase the party's populist appeal and create distance from Bank of America and the financial industry.[64] As of June, 2012, the convention was $27 million short of its fundraising goals and consequently canceled some planned events.[65](The last DNC raised $33 million from corporate donors.)[66]

The Obama campaign has also received less in union donations than it did in 2008.[52][53]

Corporate sponsors can make in-kind donations such as transportation, as well as host parties.[63] They can also donate to a non-profit called "New American City, Inc.", which is run by the directors of the convention host committee.[52] New American City, incorporated on April 4, 2011, exists to "defray administrative expenses incurred by the host committee organizations".(The host committee, in turn, provides "goods, facilities, equipment and services".)[67]

Donors to this group include Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Duke Energy.[68]

The Party's convention funds are stored in a Bank of America account.[52] The convention also has a $10 million line of credit available from Duke Energy.

Sounds like the DNC took $10 million from Duke Energy. If a $10 million loan was forgiven to you or I, we would get a 1099C and have to declare that $10 million as taxable income.

DNC won’t repay Duke Energy for Charlotte convention costs
By Susan Crabtree
The Washington Times
Friday, March 1, 2013
The Democratic National Committee has no plans to repay Duke Energy for an unprecedented $10 million line of credit it guaranteed to help the Democratic convention’s local host committee put on President Obama’s three-day nominating convention in Charlotte, N.C., last September.
A Duke company official said the company was claiming the money as a business expense for tax purposes, meaning shareholders will foot $6 million of the cost, according to a report in the Charlotte Observer.
The large loan and the secrecy surrounding it have government watchdog groups deeply concerned. They say the arrangement raises serious conflict-of-interest issues for Mr. Obama and challenges his claim to be committed to disclosure and transparency.
Since guaranteeing the loan, Duke Energy previously had refused to disclose the payment terms or when it would come due. At the end of January a Duke Energy spokesman referred all questions about the loan to Dan Murrey, a surgeon in Charlotte who was chairman of the convention host committee.
Mr. Murrey told The Washington Times only that the line of credit was with two banks — Bank of America and Mechanics & Farmers Bank, which is headquartered in Charlotte. Duke Energy had guaranteed the line of credit.
“We are still finishing up some collections and disbursements related to the convention, and the account is still open,” Mr. Murrey wrote in an emailed response.
He did not respond to questions about the terms of the loan, how much had been paid off, or whether the host committee must make monthly payments with a deadline for full repayment.
A follow-up email restating the questions went unanswered.

Great source. Got any non-biased sources, or is this another of your usual fabricated stories?

Obviously your understanding of the English language is limited.

If I say I'm going to bed at 10:00 and then decide I'm staying up until 11:00, I haven't lied - I've changed my mind.

If I say "I promise I'm going to bed at 10:00" and then don't go to bed until 11:00, THEN I have lied.

Do you see the difference?

FYI, there ARE classes you can take to improve your understanding of the English language.

Sure there is, the Democrats "eschew" corporate donations to get the anti-corporate vote, then default on a line of credit guaranteed by a corporate sponsor, thereby taking a defacto donation from a corporation. The DNC did default, or the corporation wouldn't have had to pay the bank back.

Notice, the DNC and Duke energy made no mention of the default until after the election so it couldn't be a campaign issue.

I can't find any mass media sites that report on this issue.

Conclusion: it is another fabriacation by right wing extremists.

You birther nuts will be talking about death panels again at the rate you are going.
