George Clooney has signed on for another special guest appearance as the Barack Obama re-election campaign takes its summer fundraising tour across the Atlantic in pursuit of Euro-cash.
The Obama campaign posted an invitation on its website Friday revealing that the presidential pal-in-chief will appear at a pair of Americans Abroad for Obama events Aug. 27 in Geneva, Switzerland. Clooney, who usually spends summers at his villa on Italys Lake Como, made a similar appearance across the Swiss border on behalf of then-candidate Obama during the run-up to the 2008 general election.
Charles Adams, co-president of the campaigns European outreach effort, told the newspaper Tribune de Geneve that Clooney will address a crowd of about 150 at an evening reception, which will be followed by a more intimate -- and expensive -- dinner at which the star will be the guest of honor. Tickets for the latter event will go for $20,000 for singles and $30,000 for couples.

Is this even legal, getting foreign money for a U.S. election?
Reminds me of this song.....
What about ILLEGAL do the democrats not understand?
Well ... no ... it's completely illegal. But, may I remind you: Obama is a Democrat. So I don't really see a problem here.
Locked up? I’m thinking a more severe punishment....but can’t say it out loud.
I bet these “Americans” abroad will have their votes counted (several times) in the November elections at the same time the military absentee ballots (if even received) will be magically lost in transit.
And, I’m supposed to care about what George Looney does because ... . . . . ???
The fact that Dems typically circumvent the law nd get away with it isn’t new.
What IS new (and, rather amusing) are the folks here who are surprised by it!!
If you don't have a 'D' after your name, then no, it's not legal.
Like I said many times on Freep: If Obama wins and unemployment tops the 20% mark (which it will if he wins), then we should all write Clooney not stop, everyday, until he holds a telethon for the unemployed since he considers himself the Hollywood Don of telethons. I’m quite serious. Barrage this a-holes reps with requests. I want my money bitch.
Will not be watching anymore of looney Clooney’s movies.
The DNC got caught getting money from the Chicoms back in the 90s, and I think they had to refund it.
The rule of law is pretty much defunct in the US these days.
