You don't get a line of credit from a bank without agreeing to repay, Slew Jumbo, end of story. Duke guaranteed the line of credit from the bank, co-signed if you will. The DNC defaulted on the line of credit at the bank, and Duke Energy was on the hook to repay it.
Duke Energy CHOSE to repay it.

There is no story here. Except the imaginations of right wing extremists.

Maybe we should be talking about the Republican PArty getting an evixtion notice at their Minnesota Headquarters, or all the legal bills they are in arrears on.

Duke Energy's CEO, who co-chaired the DNC, made the commitment to guarantee the line of credit. When the DNC defaulted, Duke had no choice but to pay the line of credit off.

Why don't you start a thread on that, Slew Jumbo, instead of deflecting on the DNC's default of a $10 million obligation. I don't think Duke Energy's shareholders are any too happy about paying off the line of credit. Maybe the voters that voted Democrat because they "weren't going to take any money from corporations" aren't too happy either.

Not true. Duke Energy HAD choices, one of which was to pursue the matter in court. Duke Energy CHOSE to pay off the loan.

What about all those Republican defaults now, and the Republican eviction notice?

Tribalist,

Example;

You go down to the Corner to Rent a male Prostitute for the 2.3 minutes that you need him.

He finishes off his work on your bottom, and readies himself to goes back to the corner to find another Brother on the Down Low.
You pay him with the Crack Cocaine that you got from your Momma's Boyfriend,(Her Brother), and "Guarantee" that the Shaat is good.

When the Brotha from the Corner comes back to your Concrete Apartment to complain that the Crack was Crap, you send him to the Bedroom where your Momma's Boyfriend is with your sista, because your Momma's Boyfriend (Her Brother) assured you that it was "Good Shaat".

The Brotha from the Corner complains that he did not get paid for what he did to satisfy your sick desires.

Who got robbed here?

Nobody.

Why, because you Plantation Residents have no Honor.

The Moral of the Story;

YOU have no valid opinion on the issue, you are a Defective Demokrat from down on the Plantation that lacks the Morals to act in a Moral manner.

BUT, "We the People" allow YOU to vote!

So a co-chair of the DNC that is the CEO of the company made a decision to spend $6.6 million on the DNC, and guarantee a $10 million line of credit, that the DNC defaulted on. Duke was then on the hook for the $10 million. Sounds to me like a conflict of interest for the CEO to behave in this manner. I certainly hope the board of directors and shareholders vote him out at the next opportunity.

As for the DNC, they had said they would not accept corporate donations to fund the DNC. This was used to court the anti-corporate sentiment voters. In the end, the DNC took million in donations through a side organization, and defaulted on the $10 million line of credit that Duke had to repay.

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 loan was forgiven to you or I, we would get a 1099C and have to declare that $10 million as taxable income

Isn't it so very clever that the people who make the campaign finance laws are also the ones who will benefit the most by inserting all of those little workarounds and loopholes? The foxes are doing a splendid job guarding the hen house aren't they?

Congrats, Crassus, you figured out how to spell "attention", college guy! Are you upset because you figured out that most of America hates a racist like you? Or are you upset at being forced out of the closet prematurely?

Poor Crassus. See a shrink. Not only you but the whole world will benefit. And you'll feel so much better when you find the cause of all that anger in you.

O well, if you were smart or of decent character you would not reside on the Plantation and spew talking points for your Room and Board.

We can see that a lot of things with you Doucebaggers is " Seems to me".

How deficient are you?

"whole day posting ridiculous garbage on Topix"

You spew trash that someone else created to manipulate your sheeplish nature, and attempt to impugn posters that share unique and original perspectives.

Do you "feel" that nobody sees you as you are?

Go back to your Phillips vodka.

Say, I'd be happy to help you with that 4th step - that would help you lose all that rage and resentment you feel at being so inadaquate.
