Glee! The Fundraiser
Lobbyists looking to get the ear of Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., or Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn, will soon have their chance -- along with thousands of screaming teenagers. Both Klobuchar and Moore (representing her GWEN PAC) are holding fundraisers at the Glee! Live in Concert show at the Verizon Center on June 9.
Tickets for the event are normally either $66.35 or $108.70 depending on the seat, but tickets to enjoy the concert with either the representative or the senator are a bit more costly. Contributions to the GWEN PAC event are listed as $1,500 for one ticket or $2,500 for two, while the price to attend the show with Sen. Klobuchar is $2,000.
Followers of the senior senator from Minnesota should not be surprised that Klobuchar is holding a fundraiser at a Glee concert. Last summer Sen. Klobuchar made the news when, during the Senate confirmation hearings for Elena Kagan, the Senator asked the prospective Supreme Court Justice if she could comment on the famous case of Edward vs. Jacob referring to the movie Twilight. She asked this after mentioning that her family had been up late the previous night for the premiere of the third Twilight movie and then was host to a sleepover of three 15-year-old girls. As the mother of a teenage girl and a lawmaker who is not afraid to insert pop culture into politics, it is perfectly natural that the Senator would choose to hold a fundraiser at the upcoming Glee concert.
