    Hollywood megastar to host fundraiser for Obama

    (CNN)—Academy award winning actor George Clooney is set to host a fundraiser for Barack Obama in Switzerland next month.

    The event, taking place on the evening of September 2 in Geneva, Switzerland will be split into two parts: a reception and a dinner. According to Obama’s National Finance Committee, tickets for the reception where Clooney will speak are going for $1,000, followed by a dinner at the home of NFC member Charles Adams for $10,000 a plate. Space for the dinner is limited to 75 guests.

    Hollywood supporting a Democrat? Color me shocked.

    No word yet on how Cloony expects to avoid the ban on political contributions by foreign nationals.

    Geneva, Switzerland?

    Why not here in the US?

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    That's not the question. He can do whatever he wants for the candidate he's supporting. Why have the fund raiser in a foreign country that has no bearing on our election? There is nowhere here in the states where he could have this?

    You really shouldn't be speaking on this matter...

    As for George, he can do it wherever the hell he wants? Why do you (not directed towards Sonnabend) care so much?

    Eyelids,

    It appears Sonna knows more about US election laws than you. It is illegal to accept contributions from foreign nationals. This can be circumvented by bundling, as Bill Clinton taught us and Jamie Gorelich hekped cover up and whose consequence led to other things.
