The DNC and Al Gore are hosting a fundraiser in NYC for the low, low price of $28,500 to dine with Mr. Inconvenient Truth himself (from a Dem mailing list I’m on):
This Saturday, May 31st, Vice-President Al Gore will be coming to New York City to raise funds for the Democratic National Committee. After a long, healthy, and grueling campaign season, it’s time to unite as a party. By funding the DNC, your funds will go to aiding the Democratic nominee for the long fight ahead against Senator McCain. Whether you’re a Clinton or Obama supporter, please consider contributing to the DNC to ensure a Democratic victory in November. I hope to see you on Saturday for what promises to be a memorable evening.
Tickets for the reception are $1000 and tickets to the private dinner are $28,500.
Since Dan Abrams and the rest of MSDNC made such a huge deal out of McCain’s closed-to-the-press fundraiser, I look forward to their reports from the Gore bash. It’s open to the media, correct?
