Skip to comments.Obama Bundler Who Stormed Palin Convention Speech Welcomed at Obama's Elite Hollywood Fundraiser

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.
