Re: Bills not paid - as usual!
On the surface, this seems wrong. However, there appears to be a grey area involved. If the GOP didn't contract for extra police protection and the town deemed it needed it themselves, is the GOP responsible for the costs incurred? Many towns did not think so. If the area where the event was held was not considered to require extra police protection but someone in the town decided to go all out when it was not needed, whose responsibility is it? Might be nice to honor the bill from one perspective but excessive from another.
Seems Bernie Sanders campaign ran into the same accusations. They eventually paid the bills when Sanders announced running for 2020.
