The Democratic National Convention may be long over, but its organizers have not forgotten the almost half a million dollars worth of electronics they seem to have lost.

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.

The DNC did not respond to a request for comment.

Calls to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for elaboration on the report were not returned.

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 apparently inflated prices were reported in May with the Charlotte Police Department by Kenneth Hardy, deputy in-house counsel for the Democratic National Convention Committee, on behalf of the DNCC Host Committee.

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.

The value of information stored on the devices is something that cannot have a price put on it. As for fraud. I would say that not only the Democrats but Republicans too have been committing fraud against the American people for as long as anybody can remember. Let's be real both parties are full of scumbags and both parties are above the law.

I watched the DNC on television and when the cameras panned across the convention floor and you saw who was attending the convention it was a dead giveaway that there was going to be a lot of theft going on. I think I saw some Gypsies in the New York delegation and 18th Street gang bangers in the California delegation.

The attendees of the DNC must have mistaken the electronics for government handouts
