Indian delegates at DNC bunk in college dorm


Some of the Indian delegates to the Democratic National Convention didn't exactly live it up in Boston this week.

Take some of those from Montana. Carol Juneau, a state lawmaker, and her husband, Stan, stayed at a college dorm for $140 a night. They shared the room and bathroom with another couple.

Carol Juneau wasn't complaining but she would have liked a swimming pool. "It's one of the things you look forward to at something like this," she told The New York Times.

Other Montanans who are not Indian also stayed at the dorm.
