A terrible slaughter is coming in the Middle East, Ebola virus has invaded our shores, and President Obama is in the affluent Manhattan suburb of Greenwich, Conn., for a $25,000 per plate Democratic fundraiser at a $16 million estate owned by a rich guy whose actual name is Rich Richman. This is not a parody.
The Hartford Courant reports:
A Columbus, Ohio man raised an incredible fifty five thousand dollars to make potato salad. The original goal set for the project was $10 but after the joke crowd-funding campaign went viral the money poured in. The man, Zack Brown, decided to take the money and throw a giant potato salad themed party, according to the Associated Press.
If a campaign finance story is not about David Koch or Sheldon Adelson, do liberals care? Consider the reaction to Kenneth Vogel’s important report on the winter meeting of the Democracy Alliance, the secretive organization of progressive millionaires and billionaires who finance an extraordinarily byzantine network of liberal foundations and Super PACs that operate with undisclosed “dark money.” What reaction? Exactly. There wasn’t any.
