While the election is over, the debt rung up by the presidential candidates for their campaigns remains to be paid back to various creditors. The full amount owed will be revealed next month when the campaigns file their next disclosure.
It turns out that some of the creditors are lenient while others are adamant about being paid back.
When Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign wrecked a rented golf cart, styled after a Rolls Royce, it paid the rental and repair fees almost a full year late, according to Turf Cars, Inc. of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Turf Cars is still miffed.
