"The local police departments are asking the campaigns to reimburse their costs. Based on past experience, state police are absorbing the cost."

"A Secret Service spokesman says local police agencies are advised that the federal agency isn't funded to reimburse them for campaign security."

Sadly, the departments are not smart enough to just tell the campaigns NO unless they cover the cost.

The taxpayers are the ones that get screwed, every time!

Look at all the exposure that the State gained. Better than the BObvernor shelling out millions for some junk company to come into the state. Its a win win for us. Pump up the volume.

If that half-man Obama had stayed in the White House instead of wasting tax payer money on Air Farce One, everyone would be better off. He is the Parasite in Chief.
