Stuck with the Check
- The cost of President Barack Obama's Election Day celebration in Grant Park totaled more than $1.7 million, and the city has yet to be paid.
The Office of Budget and Management says the city is reaching out to the Democratic National Committee to get the money. A DNC spokesperson said the party is still looking at various costs and bills.
In October, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said the cash-flush Obama campaign would reimburse the city for the total cost of the rally.
- Daley says the Obama campaign will pay for the rally - they don't
- Daley says taxpayers won't be on the hook for $500 million in Olympic costs - they will
