Well, well, well … isn’t this interesting? ABC News is reporting that organizers for last year’s Democratic National Convention have filed a police report claiming a grand total of $465,142.97 in missing electronics.
Scamming? The DNC? Heaven forbid! As we all know, the DNC is committed to doing things by the book! Although an appraiser working for the insurance company might take issues with the organizers’ listed claims:
A reportedly stolen 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop? $75,537. The price listed on the Apple website is $1,199. A lost iPhone? $30,503. A lost Blackberry? $54,250.
Other items reported to have gone missing at the convention included two iPads worth around $15,000 each, laptops listed at $40,000, $34,000 and $25,000 each, and other miscellaneous items worth far more than their list price.
The report claims that 40 items were reported lost and one item – the most highly valued one, the $75,000 MacBook Pro – was stolen.
Man! That must’ve been one hell of a laptop.
Move along, folks. Nothing to see here.
