Hollywood DOES Love Mitt Romney! He Scored $6 Million From Weekend Fundraiser

| Filed under: PolitikBeyonceBarack ObamaJay ZGeorge ClooneyJimmy KimmelEmmys

So THIS is where that audible cheer came from when Jimmy Kimmel asked the Emmy crowd if anyone was voting for Mitt Romney!

The Republican presidential nominee came to Hollywood on Saturday for a fundraiser at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and he managed to take home $6 million!

It's a little over a third of what George Clooney helped Barack Obama gather at a fundraiser in the beginning of the summer, but still $2 million more than what Jay-Z and Beyoncé raised for the President in New York recently.

Not that it matters though. If there's one thing Romney is NOT short and won't ever be short on, it's money.

But he'll still take more of it! A source from his campaign team told sources they plan on coming back to milk this cash cow, explaining:

“This weekend’s event was very successful and there are plans to try to get the Governor back in Los Angeles again after the first or second debate for a similar occasion.”

We're not sure if Clint Eastwood made an appearance to hang with the man "dumb enough" to let him talk to a chair at the RNC, but Jerry Bruckheimer, Gary Sinise, and Patricia Heaton were among the most famous faces in the crowd.

Tickets cost guests $1,000, $15,000 or $50,000.

    Wonder if their lead in fundraising is due to them begging people to give up their birthday, wedding gift, or pizza money? LoL

    Madonna loves Obama too. I am surprised you didn't post this Perez since you love her and love Obama. Allow me the opportunity to share a quote from Madonna.

    Madonna called Obama a "black Muslim in the White House."

    Madonna brought her MDNA Tour to Washington, D.C. on Monday night, and added a bizarre dose of politics to the show.

    "Y'all better vote for f–king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing s–t," she said. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."

    Re: WillowWynde – Who do you mean is begging for money? Your post isn't clear. Romney is not begging.

    Obama is asking for wedding money and for people to have garage sales and send him the money.

    Romney /Ryan 2012
    Don't vote for Obama because you pity him, Hollywood will give him his own game show! It's in the works right now, it's called The Blame Game. Obama will make a great host and Michelle can wear sleeveless dresses and give away arugula to the contestants.

    Re: LiberalsMakeMeSick – Unfortunately, I wasn't clear about who I was referring to in my original comment. I'm going to chalk it up to posting before coffee. LoL But yes, I was referring to the Obama's. Romney would not stoop so low as to beg for money, let alone in such a ludicrous fashion. Actually begging people to give up their birthday, wedding gift, and/or pizza money? Good grief, what next? Go to Vegas after the recent terrorist attack and do the cheesy TV circuit? Oh wait . . .

    Re: WillowWynde – Willow, I thought it was me because I read it before my coffee :)

    You are right, Romney wouldn't stoop so low. I am next expecting Obama to have kids start to hold car washes and give him their money.

    He makes me ill.

    Check out his spray on tan line at his hairline. He looks like the Tollund man.

    Re: WillowWynde – You are aware Obama charges like triple the price for spots at his "fundraisers" correct?
