Weinstein Hosts Obama Fundraiser


Harvey Weinstein, producer of such films as Lord of the Rings and Shakespeare in Love, is hosting a fundraiser at his Westport. Conn., home to raise money for Obama’s reelection bid.

Westport News reports:

Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein will open his Westport waterfront estate for a $35,800 per head fundraiser for President Obama’s re-election next month, reciprocation for the coveted State Dinner invite he received earlier this year from the White House.

Obama will then be whisked off to a fundraiser in Stamford, where tickets are expected to go for $500 a pop.
