In an unusual move, the Democratic National Committee is paying nearly $217,000 to install drywall at the Pepsi Center and INVESCO Field at Mile High to conceal the urinals in the men's restrooms during the Democratic Convention August 25-28. "This is a necessary, negotiated concession in order to properly recognize Senator Clinton's 18 million votes during the primaries." said a senior DNC official under condition of anonymity. "The convention's nightly themes are One Nation, Renewing America’s Promise, Securing America’s Future, and Change You Can Believe In. But in the bathrooms, the theme for all four nights is Solidarity - All Democrats Sit To Pee."
“We have been and are working closely with the Obama campaign to make sure we have an exciting and unified convention," Clinton spokesperson Kathleen Strand said. "We won't pout or whine as long as we get what we want."
