Skip to comments.Obama Bundler Who Stormed Palin Convention Speech Welcomed at Obama's Elite Hollywood Fundraiser
Posted on 09/18/2008 7:19:30 PM PDT by kristinn
Democrat presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois put his seal of approval on the woman who attempted to storm the stage during the acceptance speech by Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska at the Republican National Convention by welcoming her to his $28,500 per person fundraiser held in Hollywood on Tuesday night.
Less than two weeks after garnering worldwide attention by getting within feet of the stage where Palin stood before getting dragged away by security personnel, Obama bundler Jodie Evans, co-founder of the anti-American group Code Pink, was one of about 300 donors attending the high-priced fundraiser Obama held at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills that brought in approximately $8 million for the Obama campaign and the Democratic party, according to Entertainment Weekly, which published the donor list for the event.
Obama greeted the elite donors individually and posed for photos with them.
Days after Palin's speech, the National Review's Jim Geraghty suggested to Obama that he cut his ties to Evans.
Others have urged Obama to cut his ties to Evans over much more egregious behavior. Specifically her support for the terrorists in Iraq, her sympathy for Osama bin Laden, her work with state sponsors of terrorism to undermine America's war effort, her embrace of Hugo Chavez and her campaign to drive the Marines out of Berkeley--among a long list of treasonous actions.
Evans has been part of the Obama campaign from its beginning. She co-hosted his breakthrough Hollywood fundraiser in February 2007, the month he launched his candidacy.
Evans has contributed the maximum $4600 total to Obama's presidential primary and general election funds. Evans is also listed by the Obama campaign as a bundler of between $50,000 and $100,000 in contributions to his campaign.
Evans and Code Pink also delivered $600,000 in cash and humanitarian aid to the families of what Code Pink called "the other side" in Fallujah, Iraq as the Marines were liberating that city from al Qaeda in Iraq in late 2004.
Evans and Code Pink will be in New York City next week where they will be calling for President Bush to be arrested at the United Nations and put on trial for being "the world's number one war criminal."
Barack Obama's close embrace of Evans as one of the key members of his campaign has been virtually ignored by the media. With six weeks left in the campaign, will they inform the American people that the man who aspires to be commander-in-chief is intimately allied with someone who is working to get American soldiers killed and America defeated in the war on terror?

She was an uhly thing
The Shiite floats in the 0bama cesspool.
He actually said, “McCain does not have the answers to our economic problems” to a room full of people who paid 28,500 dollars to hear him speak plus another 2,500 to hear Barbra Streisand sing?
Too bad I wasn’t there cause I wouldn’t have punched her right on the kisser! Honestly folks, I would have tackled her to the floor. I could NOT believe NOBODY from the aisle grab her and threw her down the stairs or even made an attempt to stop her!!
The list is long of names that could be inserted with Evans. Obama lies down with very dirty dogs.
How utterly dishonorable for Obama to associate with this petty fascist who stormed the stage of his political rival.
Has this story appeared anywhere in the media? Are Drudge or conservative commentators aware of it?
In any case, many thanks for posting this here.
Obama is becoming more and more dangerous!!!
I THINK WE NEED TO WORRY! HE REMINDS ME OF STALIN!
Wow! What a surprise!
Where’s Larry Sinclair? Maybe McCain/Palin can send him on a speaking tour. Just be yourself and tell your story, Larry.
Nice to see that Barry is moving toward the center for the general election.
Barry and Company don’t even have a clue who lives in the USA.
I wonder if she is Obama’s mistress, things just haven’t been too good between Michelle and Barack lately. Last time I saw that kind of affection, was when Monica looked at Bill Clinton.
They should put a set of moose antlers on her, and turn her loose near the Palin’s home during hunting season.
He is one of em.
A Republican man beating up a leftist woman would have undone almost all of what Gov. Palin accomplished that night.
Now had a stout Republican woman been there, she could have kicked the snot out of her and it would simply have been th 60’s American woman vs. the American woman of the 21st century. A delightful sight.
This would make another great McCain commercial
Barbara Mandrell went to this thing. I had not idea so was a lefty. Her sister has been a board member of the NRA.
Kristinn, did they ever determine if she had a press pass and who she got it from??
See them and know them for what they are.
When you are dealing with a Moonbat you just don't know what to expect.
This is why CCW and "Open Carry" are so important. You never see the Code Pink pukes harrassing people where those are the standards.
[I THINK WE NEED TO WORRY! HE REMINDS ME OF STALIN!]
Lol, I think you’re right and we have been worried. Think of the ‘groups’ he intends to form of highschool and college kids. Indoctrinate them and he’ll have his own little militia - eventually.
Even read he wanted them as young as 12 years of age - ‘for community service’....
Jodie Even, claiming she caught a fish “thiiiis biiiiig”, was a little put out when she was put out of the auditorium.
[Last time I saw that kind of affection, was when Monica looked at Bill Clinton.]
LOL, gave me a laugh and that’s a good thing.
Yeah, I remember Monica in the ‘receiving’ line and Bubba giving her a big hug. Guess that was affection. I don’t like to think of the rest of their ‘affection’!
I would have done my darndest to make it look 100% accidental. "Oops, slipped, my goodness, bet that hurts. Does that hurt? Man that looked like it hurt."
The mere fact that Obama cavorts with Code Pinkos disqualifies the rancid POS from dogcatcher.
I’m trying to imagine McCain hobnobbing with someone who stormed Obama’s stage. It just wouldn’t happen. This is one of those times when the difference in right and left stands out clearly. In this case it’s the diff in how left and right relate to their extremist fringe.
Who would have thought it? The media have been a total embarrassment during this entire election. The mask has come off, and they have revealed themselves for what they really are.
Just imagine what the media would have done to a white republican candidate that attended a white supremacist church for 20 years? Imagine if a white republican candidate were running on a resume as thin as Obama's is? They would be constantly dwelling on his inexperience, and he would be the subject of many jokes on the late night shows. Imagine if this white republican candidate got his start in politics at the home of a man that led a right wing extremist group that bombed abortion clinics? The media, and the candidate's own party, would run such a person off of the national stage, and out of politics all together. Anyone remember David Duke?
This entire campaign has been the ultimate example of media bias. All one has to do is think out a role reversal on the candidates, and imagine what the media do. It's astonishing.
I am telling you something hasn’t been right between Obama and Michelle since their trip to Hawaii. Wonder who is the wedge between them?
“How utterly dishonorable for Obama to associate with this petty fascist who stormed the stage of his political rival.”
More fodder for a 527 ad.
Republicans’d better wake up! Understand that democritters do not just represent a rival political party to be negotiated with but that they are the ENEMY as real as Al-Qaeda is.
Fox News and Free Republic are my sources. When YOU find out, let me know, lol.
She does seem to be under wraps moreso now.
Something to check. I read that Jodie Evans was the wife or separated wife of leftist financial angel Max Palevsky (who has long supported communist and leftwing causes - He is also a bigwig in the Democratic Party.)
Love these anti-capitalist commies. They don’t live in a 6 x 9 ft shack like Obie’s half-brother. They don’t eat out of garbage cans, or ride bikes to work.
There is no limit to their hypocrisy.
There are so many of these anti-American freaks seamlessly adorned throughout Barack Obama's entire life history, that the ad would have to be at least 30 minutes to do them all justice.
I hear ya, Rose. I said the very same thing to my husband at the time. I said why didn’t someone trip her on the stairs?
hollywood is NOT elite. Sick yes...elite no!
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
If any republican was close friends with someone this extreme on the right you can bet the dems would mention it over and over again. Why don’t republicans do the same thing. These people are enemies of America. They are supporters of UBL.
Is that Cindy Sheehan? We need to take up a collection to contribute to her campaign. Split that DemocRat vote and get Pelosi out.
