    Boston Herald ^ | Friday, July 30, 2004 | David R. Guarino
    As John F. Kerry tries to bounce out of Boston and into a decisive fall campaign lead, a skeleton from the past will slink out of jail - possibly looking to score headlines and undercut the new nominee. David Paul, a central figure in a 1980s savings and loan scandal, is set to be sprung from a halfway house in Miami Sunday - a decade after his conviction on 97 counts of banking fraud. TV news outlets are scrambling to line up the first interview, hopeful the long-silent Paul might spill some beans about his close fund-raising ties to Kerry...

    Obama in the city for Clinton ally’s fundraiser By Emily Smith President Obama is coming to Manhattan Tuesday for yet another fund-raiser, hosted by longtime Hillary Clinton friend and bundler Alan Patricof. While the president is flying in on Air Force One for the intimate “fireside chat” at Patricof’s home in front of just 26 people at the $32,400 per ticket event, private equity and venture capital pioneer Patricof has made it clear the fund-raiser is not to bolster Obama, but to boost the Democratic National Committee ahead of a possible Clinton presidential run.
  • Obama Administration Punishes Reporter For Using Multimedia

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | April 28, 2011 | Phil Bronstein
    The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights. White House officials have banished one of the best political reporters in the country from the approved pool of journalists covering presidential visits to the Bay Area for using now-standard multimedia tools to gather the news. The Chronicle's Carla Marinucci - who, like many contemporary reporters, has a phone with video capabilities on her at all times - pulled out a small video camera last week and shot some protesters interrupting an Obama fundraiser at the St. Regis Hotel.

    Chili’s restaurants has cancelled a Planned Parenthood fundraiser that was being held at locations across two states after pro-life people complained. In an exclusive report a LifeNews.com yesterday, Chili’s restaurants in two states were coming under fire from pro-life advocates for giving 15% of patron’s meal purchases to the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Earlier this week the Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliate in Indiana and Kentucky posted a promotional code its supporters could use to request that Chili’s donate 15% of the pre-tax meal purchase to benefit the abortion corporation. According to the image the abortion company posted, its supporters...

    Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) responded to an attack from President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday by urging Democrats in a fundraising email to stand up to Trump. “Today Donald Trump attacked me on Twitter. He said that I’m ‘all talk’ and ‘no action,’” Lewis wrote in the letter from the Democratic National Committee (DNC). “I’ve been beaten, bloody, tear-gassed, fighting for what’s right for America. I’ve marched at Selma with Dr. King. Sometimes that’s what it takes to move our country in the right direction," the letter continued.

  • Meltdown: Justin Trudeau Defends Presence at Elite Fundraisers as Approval Plummets

    Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the nation’s House of Commons Tuesday that he has attended lavish fundraisers for his family’s foundation to “create economic growth for the middle class.” His defense of his participation in fundraisers thrown by the Pierre Trudeau Foundation – which he renounced his official position in upon becoming the leader of the Liberal Party – follows an admission that he allowed attendees to lobby him at these fundraisers, a clear violation of Liberal Party bylaws. The metastasizing cash-for-access scandal follows a calamitous month for Canada’s Liberals in which, partly triggered by Trudeau’s effusive praise...

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Gov. Andrew Cuomo's campaign collected $25,000 in donations from Cor Development Co. executives at a December 2015 fundraiser. Two days later, Cuomo's staff did something nice for Cor. Administration officials finally dislodged a contract to sell the company 3.6 acres of state land that Cor wanted in Syracuse's Inner Harbor. The deal had been approved five months earlier, but was stuck in governmental purgatory.... The December 2015 fund-raising event was hosted by lobbyist Todd Howe, who represented Cor at the time, according to a report of the event by Politico. Howe recently pleaded guilty to corruption charges...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: You won't believe this. It's the headline. "Gloria Steinem Keynotes Planned Parenthood Fundraiser: 'Forced Childbirth Is the Single Biggest Cause of Global Warming,'" unquote. Don't smirk. You used to buy every line. Whatever Algore said in the movie, you believed it. I'm glad we saved you. But "forced childbirth"? That's along the meme that it's an illness. Childbirth is male oppression. Yeah, look at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. How many is she walking around with now, six? Can you imagine the damage that family is doing to global warming under Gloria Steinem's theory? Just think of...

Two days later, she infamously fainted during a Sept 11 events in downtown New York, however she assured the media that she was ok, while the sick, and perhaps contagious, presidential candidate took the opportunity for another photo op with a...

    She characterized half of Trump supporters as people to “empathize with.” She characterized the other half as “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”Speaking to donors on Friday night, Hillary Clinton outlined what she sees as the two types of Trump supporters. First, there are those in the “basket of deplorables” — who include racists, xenophobes, and homophobes, and make up about “half” of Trump’s supporters, Clinton said. She called this group “irredeemable.” Second, there are the people who “don’t buy everything he says,” but want desperately to see change. She said this group was worthy of...

    Maybe the media should pose as children with a stacks of 27 $100 bills in little their outstretched hands so they, too, can have an audience with the queen. The New York Times revealed in the 21st paragraph of a Saturday story that while it’s now been 23 days since Hillary Clinton last held a press conference, one group of nonvoters is getting to quiz her, given they have a wad of cash to hand over: For a donation of $2,700, the children (under 16) of donors at an event last month at the Sag Harbor, N.Y., estate of the...

    BEAUMONT - Sources close to the private fundraiser held for Hillary Clinton in Beaumont Wednesday afternoon tell 12News it raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Lampson says Clinton spoke about education, healthcare and individual freedoms for people of all backgrounds and faiths. Many of the Pakistanis at...

    Former President Jimmy Carter is taking on a more public role in Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the White House. Clinton supporters across the country this morning were greeted by an email from the former Georgia governor asking them to pitch in to help elect Clinton in November. And Carter wrote that he had a personal reason for asking: “During my 1976 presidential run, a young woman moved to Indianapolis to help turn out the Indiana vote for me. Forty years later, I will proudly cast my vote for that same woman to be the next President of the United States.”...

Pop star Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel will instead host the event at their home. .......snip......... But the timing of DiCaprio’s cancellation comes as the actor’s environmental-focused charitable organization, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, was linked to a $3 billion Malaysian embezzlement scheme in news reports last week. The foundation — which focuses on climate change initiatives and hosts a glitzy annual party for hundreds of A-list celebrities and dignitaries —...

    PROVINCETOWN, Mass. — It was a very busy, very lucrative weekend for Hillary Clinton in the summer playground of the East Coast's moneyed elite. She brunched with wealthy backers at a seaside estate in Nantucket, snacking on shrimp dumplings and crabcakes. A few hours later, she and her husband dined with an intimate party of thirty at a secluded Martha's Vineyard estate. And on Sunday afternoon, she joined the singer Cher at a "LGBT summer celebration" on the far reaches of Cape Cod. By Sunday evening, Clinton had spoken to more than 2,200 campaign donors. But what she told the...
