Hillary Has History of Not Tipping Waitresses

She's done it before. Therefore her denials are suspect. This one occurred in 2000:
Earlier this month, Mrs. Clinton mishandled a solo breakfast stop while visiting an upstate diner to promote her candidacy for the United States Senate. She accepted a free meal from the owner and neglected to tip the waitress, prompting her opponent, Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, to needle her by leaving his next waitress $60 for a $35 bill. Mrs. Clinton later recovered by sending her waitress, a single mother, a United States savings bond.

So don't bother denying it:
NPR is also reporting that when the Clinton team came into the restaurant where Esterday works — no one left a tip — even Senator Clinton — whose meal was on the house.

The Clinton campaign denies this — insisting it paid $157 for food and left a $100 tip. The manager confirms someone paid, though it remains unclear why the waitress apparently got nothing.

This from NPR:
A waitress causes a stir on the political blogs. The waitress at a Maid-Rite restaurant in Iowa says she did not get a tip after serving presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton, a Democrat from New York. But the Clinton campaign says a $100 tip was left at the diner.
