More of that infamous Chicago-style pay-to-play from Obama.
From Washington Whispers:
The Obama campaign’s Hollywood fundraisers netted the president millions of dollars in the campaign, with an event at George Clooney’s home alone bringing in $15 million, according to multiple media reports.
The celebrity hosts of these fundraisers saw the perks of political proximity, attention to their causes, and—in the case of some — face time with POTUS or tours of the White House.
Of the two dozen or so A-listers who held big fundraisers for Obama this cycle, Whispers found at least 10 of them had visited the White House before donating. Their visits are tracked in the White House visitor logs, the latest records of which were released to the public last Friday.
In this latest round of logs, Clooney is recorded as visiting the White House twice in mid-March, including for a meeting with Obama in the West Wing. Obama and Clooney reportedly discussed the crisis in Darfur, Sudan, a major cause of Clooney’s.
