George Clooney Raises Over Half A Mil For Obama During Switzerland Fundraiser

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaGeorge Clooney

George Clooney is at it again!

The actor has been raising money for Barack Obama's re-election campaign left and right this summer and continued to do so in Switzerland on Monday.

Along with Democrats Abroad’s co-president Charles Adams (pictured above), Clooney hosted a fundraising dinner in Geneva, which was limited to U.S. citizens.

The event started off with a champagne reception for 150 people — each donating $1,000 — then turned into a dinner for 50 people which cost $20,000 a person. If guests came as a couple, however, they got the super saver deal and only had to shell out $30,000!

What a deal! Ha!

No records were broken this time and campaign contributions didn't come close to $15 million, but the dinner still raised $625,000!

    Re: Jason – No, George and his little Hollywood liberal amigos mostly raise money for good ol' incompetent Barry Obama. They're not as concerned with poor people living hand to mouth. This election though, Clooney may as well flush that half a mil down the fucking toilet cuz we all know Barry is a one-term president.

    for 30k i would expect a lap dance from george ty sheesh

    isn't it illegal for money in our elections to come from outside the country??

    They probably paid money just to shut him up. Besides, Clooney owns a house in Mexico and pays no property taxes, his last films were shot by foreign companies therefore, he don't have to pay income taxes. Reall nice person to have trying to raise money.

    Great Points by Jason, Luvs2hustle, etc… Even if you don't like Romney at all, ALL YOU HAVE TO KNOW IS THE PRESIDENT"S views on gay marriage, or abortion MEAN NOTHING.
    Vote for Romney will get this country back to where it's supposed to be, Obama is dragging it lower and lower…. Barry Obama has done nothing… Romney has succeeded everywhere he's been,
    But as I read the results of these polls on this site, all i can see people still want Obama in office… too bad
