So the DNC is filing police reports for lost and/or ‘stolen’ electronics from their September DNC convention in Charlotte in June of 2013? If that’s not bad enough, the DNC is claiming a 13″ Macbook pro laptop worth over $75,000, iPhones over $30,000 and iPads over $15,000. I knew Democrats love wasting tax payer money, but how in the hell do these products get valued like this? Is the DNC trying to defraud police? A 13″ Macbook Pro was worth about $1,100. iPhones and iPads are worth a few hundred dollars. The grand total of what the DNC is asking for the North Carolina tax payers for all these computers, tablets and phones comes to an eye opening $465,142.97
The Democratic National Convention may be long over, but its organizers have not forgotten the almost half a million dollars worth of electronics they seem to have lost.
Organizers of the Charlotte, N.C., convention have filed a police report for lost and stolen electronics, some of which they have valued at as much as 62 times the listed market prices.
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.
