The Oklahoma Democratic Party is seeking a bailout from Barack Obama, but just in case it’s asking the party faithful to cough up money for staff members. Plagued by debt in the past, the state party apparatus has been staffed by workers paid by the Democratic National Committee rather than local sources. The party seeks donations to keep the three employed until Obama is sworn in and will perhaps agree to continue subsidizing the salaries. Obama failed to win a single county here, the Democratic nominee for a U.S. Senate seat won only four and the Legislature went Republican for the first time in history. Given these results, the DNC hasn’t been getting much of a return on its investment.
