It’s really kind of sad how a special interest group will support a guy who spits in their faces.
In New York, Obama will attend three fundraisers: one at a private residence where tickets begin at $10,000; one at the Greenwich Village restaurant Gotham Bar and Grill at $35,800 per ticket; and a reception at the Sheraton Hotel, where tickets begin at $1,000. The money will be split between the Democratic National Committee and the Obama re-election campaign.
Obama also is scheduled to attend a reception celebrating progress on gay rights and the six-month anniversary of New York’s approval of gay marriage. Obama has been supportive of gay and lesbian causes but has yet to declare his support for gay marriage.
