Meeting a U.S. President is an honor, but getting invited to George Clooney’s house sounds too good to be true!
The President’s campaign staff has just announced the “Obama, Clooney and You” sweepstakes in which they will raffle off two tickets to a May 10th fundraiser at George Clooney’s house for “grassroots supporters.”
“Donate today to be automatically entered to win two seats at George Clooney’s reception with President Obama,” the official online entry form explains. https://donate.barackobama.com/page/contribute/o2012-obama-clooney-you?source=em12_20120419_js_nd&utm_medium=email&utm_source=obama&utm_campaign=em12_20120419_js_nd
And, in small print, they admit a contribution is not necessary. While the sweepstakes is meant to encourage donations to the Obama campaign, the official rules for the contest state, “PURCHASE, PAYMENT OR FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION WILL NOT INCREASE ODDS OF WINNING.”
Or, if you want to guarantee yourself a seat at the table, you can buy tickets to the event for a mere $35,800. https://donate.barackobama.com/page/contribute/o2012-obama-clooney-you?source=em12_20120419_js_nd&utm_medium=email&utm_source=obama&utm_campaign=em12_20120419_js_nd
Grass roots supporters pay $35,800 a plate??
