An election season worth billions

Hosted by ,

President Obama is in town to hit up the Hollywood ATM for Hillary Clinton. Last night he attended a fundraiser at the home of Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg. Twenty five people at that event paid upwards of $100,000 each to spend an hour hanging out with the president. That’s chump change compared with the $35 million donated by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz. Where does all this money go? Are there no campaign contribution limits anymore?
