Democratic National Convention host group got nearly $1M in bonuses by Associated Press.

The committee that raised money for last summer’s Democratic National Convention used surplus funds to hand out nearly $1 million in bonuses for staff members as well as grants for Philadelphia schools and nonprofits, rankling some state lawmakers who ponied up $10 million in tax dollars for the event.

The bonuses to the host committee staff came from a $4 million post-convention surplus and were disclosed in a Jan. 31 filing with the Federal Election Commission. They were first reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer.
