In 2009, President Barack Obama said he didn’t run for office to help out “fat cat bankers,” but it appears that he has no problem with fat cat bankers — or the fat cat law firms who represent them — helping him.
Monday night, Obama will attend a private fundraiser hosted by Dwight Bush, president of Urban Trust Bank, and his wife Antoinette, a partner at the international law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, and Flom. Skadden is the firm hired to handle the bankruptcy of MF Global, the large Wall Street firm headed by Jon Corzine, former governor of New Jersey and a strong ally of President Obama.
Tickets for the event are at least $17,900 per person.
