One of the events was to be at a private home of one of Forbes 400 Richest people, a 37 year old former Enron executive.
Arnold, 37, one of the 400 richest Americans according to Forbes, was one of Barack Obama’s top financiers in 2008, bundling between $50,000 and $100,000 in contributions for his election campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. He has personally given the legal maximum — $5,000 — to Obama for 2012, records show.
Where is the outrage coming from the left side of the aisle that First Lady Michelle Obama is fundraising at a private shindig with a former Enron executive? Where is the media curiosity about this event?
Can you imagine if say, Mitt Romney or Rick Perry were attending a fundraiser put on by an Enron guy?
Michelle Obama was suppose to do a larger event earlier in the day and then the private event. All of the money was to go to the Obama Victory Fund, a part of the Obama re-election campaign.
Interestingly enough, the First Lady will go to her scheduled event in New Orleans Tuesday, despite cancelling the Houston events. She will do a fundraiser and an event for her "Let's Move" program.
