President Obama is allegedly threatening to back out of a taxpayer-funded talk this month if the details of his deal are made public.
Daily Caller reports:
Obama will participate in a moderated question and answer session on Sept. 28 at the University of Southern Denmark before local business leaders, university students and local dignitaries, according to Business Kolding, the event’s organizer.
But the event has already sparked criticism from citizens of Denmark’s Kolding Municipality, which is providing 750,000 kroner, or $117,000, in taxpayer funds to support the behind-closed-doors event titled “A Conversation with President Barack Obama.”
But Pedersen said he has been kept in the dark by the event’s organizers regarding the total cost of hosting Obama’s talk.
When pressed by a local news outlet for more information, Business Kolding said the Obama would cancel the event outright if details surrounding his speaking contract were released to the public.
Of course, few will be surprised to find out that Obama disregards taxpayer interests, but it’s interesting to see to what lengths he’ll go to keep his taxpayer-funded payday secret.
