Does this guy work or just try to get re-elected.
Giants legend Willie Mays, Gov. Jerry Brown and Mayor Ed Lee are all scheduled to be on hand when President Obama blows into San Francisco on Wednesday for a pair of sold-out fundraisers.
Obama's visit comes less than two weeks after his last Bay Area cash catch. One party co-host explained that the president was heading to L.A. anyway for another star-studded fundraiser, so why not make a quick detour and pick up an additional $1.5 million for his re-election fight?
The big stop will be at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in Clint Reilly's historic Merchants Exchange Building, where 275 supporters will pay $5,000 apiece to have lunch with Obama.
The last time Reilly hosted an Obama fundraiser - a $2,500-a-head event in August with first lady Michelle Obama - guests were forced to use plastic utensils after the waiters confiscated everyone's silverware as a security measure.
"From what I understand, that decision was made by a junior Secret Service person assigned to the first lady," Reilly tells us.
