NYC gay bar hosts Obama fundraiser ("GoGo for Obama" in full swing -- no pun intended)
Washington Post ^ | 9/9/2012 | Katherine Boyle

Outside, posters of President Obama and the first lady were the only signs that Eastern Bloc was closed for a private party. To some regulars of the grungy gay bar in Manhattan’s East Village, the $100 minimum cover charge seemed too pricey for a Saturday night.

But for an Obama campaign fundraiser, the entrance fee was relatively modest, unlike some of the boisterous dancers at the “GoGo for Obama” event. The fundraiser, hosted by a gaggle of models, fashion editors and socialites, is just one of hundreds of such small, grass-roots events organized by individual donors and held throughout campaign season in private homes or during backyard barbecues. Saturday’s soiree proved that with broad support from new interest groups comes a new breed of campaign fundraiser — a kind that might make some buttoned-up campaign types wince.

The crowd of about 150 Obama supporters was cordial and relaxed, a mix of friends and fashion types, partying alongside male dancers wearing Obama ’08 boxer briefs (or, as one did, an American flag-themed thong) stuffed with the requisite $1 bills. (Only door proceeds went to the reelection fund; dancers kept their tips.)

Obama would fit right in with this crowd,but I doubt that the SS could ever be persuaded to let him get in the barrel.

I have never been in a homosexual themed bar. I guess I’ve led a sheltered life. I wouldn’t know what to expect when I went in there.

The Washington COMpost lives up to its reputation as the best manure news has ever been printed on.

“The fundraiser, hosted by a gaggle of models, fashion editors and socialites, is just one of hundreds of such small, grass-roots events...”

No, you propagandist liars. The “grassroots” is not comprised of models, fashion editors, and socialites. They would be more like the 1%, the snobby elite, the “good-ol’-city-boy-club.”

The TEA Party is a true, grassroots organization.

Well, I'd think you'd want to sit down and keep your mouth closed.

Not to be confused with “Prostitutes for Obama”.

I understand they were collecting tips which were not going to the campaign do you think they will declare them on their taxes?

Neither have I. Strangely enough, I’m very happy to keep it that way.
