A White House aide says President Barack Obama plans to attend a memorial service Wednesday at Fort Hood — the site of last week’s shooting rampage.
The memorial is also the same day Obama will reportedly attend a Democratic fundraiser in Houston for House and Senate candidates.
The Associated Press obtained an invitation to the April 9 event where tickets start at $16,200 a person and go up to $64,800 for a couple. Democratic leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are also expected to attend.
The AP reports that the money raised at the fundraiser will go to Democratic campaign committees in the House and Senate.
Yes, it’ll go to the campaign to fight big money in politics or something.
