GOP Shakedown

Who exactly, is the “Committee on Arrangements” and why are they shaking down Tampa hotels for up to $100 per room, just for the privilege of booking Republican National Convention guests?

Is this free-market economics or is it an example of vulture capitalism?

I suspect that every downtown Tampa hotel could fully book every hotel room during convention week without the help of The Committee.

After all, isn’t the GOP all about laissez-faire and not about thuggery?
