Where Rahm was on Aug. 7: In Washington for Obama fund-raising

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who declines to put political events on his public schedule, which I hope changes as we get closer to the election, flew here to bolster President Barack Obama's fund-raising Tuesday.

Emanuel was part of " roundtable" briefing with 0bama for about 25 of the presidents's big backers at a hotel here. While it was not a fundraiser in the sense that no ticket was required, it is part of the premier treatment given to donors who appreciate insider campaign updates.

Later, Emanuel attended a $40,000 per person event for the re-election drive, with about 20 attendees, campaign officials told the Chicago Sun-Times.
