City councilman sued over unpaid bill for campaign fliers - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "'The last piece came in at almost $7,000, which is way off the charts. I didn't authorize that but I didn't want them to eat the entire cost either, so I told them I'd be happy to pay $3,000 — like the other pieces,' said Kraus, 54, of the South Side. 'I paid them $1,500 as a first payment, but they want the whole thing. I'm not going to pay it. I think it's obscene.'"I expect that the printing had the union bug on it. Is union work obscene?
That printing comes on the heels of the Jason saga. Court settlement was needed there too, I think.
Over-reaching doesn't pay.
I never spent $7,000 on a campaign brochure nor any campaign. But, I've got more than 7,000 votes.
