(D-CA) Becerra fundraiser touts super committee nod

Posted on 08/12/2011 2:07:39 AM PDT by markomalley

Rep. Xavier Becerra — or, to be more precise, lobbyists working on his behalf — wasted no time Thursday capitalizing on the California congressman’s appointment to the congressional super committee.

A little over two hours after Becerra was named to the powerful panel, Investment Company Institute’s Jim Hart sent out an email encouraging attendance for the trade group’s upcoming $1,500 per person fundraiser based on Becerra’s new found status as one of the elite 12.

“We will host an event for Congressman Xavier Becerra, not only Vice Chairman of the Democratic Caucus but also who has just been named to the new deficit reduction commission,” Hart, political affairs officer for ICI wrote. “This will be Mr. Becerra’s first event since being named to the commission and may be one of the first for any of the twelve members of the group.”

Hart added, “This event could give all attendees a glimpse into what will most assuredly be the primary topic of discussion between now and the end of the year.”

That’s didn’t take long and, of course, a Dem went first.
