But John McCain wouldn’t do anything crooked

McCain campaign gets almost 80% off on Homewood gathering space, plus free labor from Homewood Jail inmates – al.com

The McCain campaign was charged $250 to use two rooms in the hall, which normally would book for $1,200 on a weeknight. The campaign also was given free labor from Homewood City Jail inmates to set up tables and chairs for the event, avoiding a $100 set-up fee, but did pay a standard $50 cleaning fee.

The Alabama Democrats, however, paid full price and didn’t get any free labor.

The mayor says he gave the discount because it was on a “slow day”. The city council says that they always vote on these things, but not this time. I say that if they’d tried Mountain Brook or Vestavia, they probably would have gotten it for free, and high school students as a labor force.
