    Default Mitt Romney's Campaign Cancels Staffers Credit Cards In The Middle Of The Night

    From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

    Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

    Probably at midnight. Maybe they should have been warned, but it makes perfect sense.

    I'm imagining so many funny scenarios of when those cards were canceled.

    But just to bring up a sore subject, I'd like to point out that Mitt's campaign manager didn't put all the expenses on his own personal card and then get reimbursed.

    He probably didn't have a chewing gum stipend, either.

    That's pretty brutal.... but they probably had close to 1000 employees, if not more, so it's pretty hard to control expenses, and I guess they didn't want a freefrall.

    On Ron's Campaign almost no one got a credit card, we had to submit an expense report for reimbursement, but they were not tightfisted on legitimate expenses; in other words they trusted their employees and apparently Romney's campaign didn't.
