Attending a fund raising event under a tent at the home of Walt Disney chairman Alan Horn were Barbra Streisand, Jeffery Katzenberg, Tom Rothman and James Brolin. Just regular folk out for a down-home dinner with friends. As Jim Gerhaghty writes in NRO, Obama was in L.A. on Wednesday to speak to Hollywood millionaires about the menace of inequality.
President Obama on Wednesday raised money for House and Senate candidates at the home of Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn and his wife Cindy, in an effort to boost Hollywood contributions in advance of what looks to be a difficult midterm election season for Democrats . . .
At one point, as he talked about the problems of inequality, a car alarm went off, and Obama quipped, “Sound the alarm, because we’ve got a problem.”
Tickets to the event started $10,000 per person, including dinner and a photo op. Those donating $32,400 per couple got listed as “sponsors” and could take part in a VIP reception. Those donating $64,800 per couple were listed as “hosts” and could take part in a “VIP clutch.”
