Is this police report a precursor to the 2012 Dem convention slogan eventually having to be revised to “Yes we can wildly inflate value for insurance purposes”?

From ABC News:

Organizers of the Charlotte, N.C., convention have filed a police report for lost and stolen electronics, some of which they appear to have valued at as much as 62 times the listed market prices.

A reportedly stolen 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop? $75,537. The price listed on the Apple website is $1,199. A lost iPhone? $30,503. A lost Blackberry? $54,250.
[…]
Other items reported to have gone missing at the convention included two iPads worth around $15,000 each, laptops listed at $40,000, $34,000 and $25,000 each, and other miscellaneous items worth far more than their list price.

The report claimed that 40 items were reported lost and one item – the most highly valued one, the $75,000 MacBook Pro – was stolen.
[…]
The report was filed almost eight months after the convention, when the losses supposedly took place.

The cost of the 41 missing electronics totaled $465,142.97, according to the police report.

That averaged $11,344 per item.

Either something’s really fishy here or they originally bought the stuff at list prices from an Obamacare exchange.

I’m surprised they didn’t report TOTUS as stolen. That would be a claim worth some serious money, and it would have been believable.
