According to their newly released expense reports, Obama's people spent $20,000 on Apple products in August, while Romney's folks spent $50,000 on the silver stuff during the same period. Both campaigns also shelled out for ice cream while traveling through Ohio — these are August expense reports, after all — though Romney more so: While Obama spent $360 at Toft’s Dairy in Sandusky, Romney paid $5,790 to rent out Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl for his ice cream social in Zanesville. And finally, the Romney campaign spent $313 at Chick-fil-A, back when that still meant something.
