The scoop from Washington

George Clooney hosting Obama fund-raiser

| No Comments

President Barack Obama, devoting more and more time to major donor fund-raising, heads to Los Angeles for a May 10 event at the home of George Clooney. Clooney and Obama became acquainted when Obama was an Illinois senator--on the issue of the genocide in Darfur. Entertainment Tonight had the scoop.

The funder benefits the Obama for American campaign, the Democratic National Committee and Democratic parties in key battleground states. The top price for the event is $40,000 per person; the first $5,000 goes to the Obama re-election campaign, the next $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee and the state parties.
