Hollywood Political Donors By Candidate
Deadline Hollywood Daily ^ | July 16, 2006 | Nikki Finke

Posted on 07/16/2007 1:37:31 PM PDT by abb

CNN Political Research Director Robert Yoon has compiled a list of celebrity donors from the latest batch of presidential fundraising disclosures. I'm sure it's incomplete, but it's also interesting nonetheless. I'll look for more moguls who contributed.

HILLARY CLINTON (D) * Ruby Dee, actress: $250 * Danny DeVito, actor: $2,300 * Fran Drescher, actress: $2,300 * Joely Fisher, actress $4,600 * Tom Hanks, actor: $2,300 * Ed Helms, actor: $250 * Sharon Lawrence, actress: $1,000 * Tobey Maguire, actor $4,600 * Marla Maples, actress: $1,000 * Paul Newman, actor: $4,600 * Rhea Perlman, actress $2,300 * Pauly Shore, actor $1,000 * Ben Stiller, actor $6,900 * George Takei, actor $1,000 * Lily Tomlin, actor $2,000 * Rita Wilson, actress $2,300 * Joanne Woodward, actor $4,600

DENNIS KUCINICH (D) * Shelley Morrison, actress: $1600 * Alexandra Paul, actress: $1300 * Deirdre Hall, actress: $1000 * Hector Elizondo, actor: $300

BILL RICHARDSON (D) * Michael Douglas, actor: $3100 * Val Kilmer, actor: $2300 * Paul Newman, actor: $2300 * Edward James Olmos, actor: $2300 * Wendie Malick, actress: $500 * Steven Spielberg, director: $2300 * Kate Capshaw, actress: $2300 * Jodie Foster, actress: $1000 * Christie Brinkley, actress: $500 * Bette Midler, actress/singer: $4600 * Sherry Lansing, ex-mogul: $2300 * William Friedkin, director: $2300 * James L. Brooks, director: $1000

I noticed that some actors/actresses/singers, gave to more than one candidate.

I’ve heard of betting on more than one horse in a race, but this is ridiculous.

Their MONEY counts.

You think Republicans would turn it down, if any of these people offered it to them? or refuse to invite them to their parties?
