The Washington Post reports:
A review of Obama’s top bundlers, who have brought in $500,000 or more for the campaign, shows that about one in six publicly identify themselves as gay. His overall list of bundlers also includes a number of gay couples who have wed in jurisdictions where same-sex marriage was legal.
“It’s a very important constituency,” said Los Angeles attorney Dana Perlman, a top Obama bundler who is helping organize a 700-person LGBT fundraiser for the president on June 6. “The community for the most part is wholeheartedly behind this man.”
Obama already had their votes. He did the flip flop trick today to make sure he keeps getting their money. He raised $1 million within 90 minutes of today’s announcement.
And to think, this president came into office criticizing the role of special interest money in politics. That was before he figured out that he had this valuable thing that he could sell.
