HOLLYWOOD VS. MCCONNELL
The liberal prowess of Tinseltown should never be underestimated. DreamWorks chief Jeffrey Katzenberg now says his “top priority” is to unseat Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014, this according to Tina Daunt, who follows political trends for the Hollywood Reporter.
Mr. Katzenburg has sent out the call to silver screen chums to contribute to Alison Lundergan Grimes, age 34 and a Democrat who is challenging the Kentucky Republican. She also happens to be Kentucky’s secretary of state and refers to her rival as “Senator Gridlock.”
Mrs. Grimes has already raised $2.5 million for her campaign chest. And among her 60 instant A-List contributors: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, Ben Stiller, Woody Allen, Jerry Seinfeld, Nicolas Cage, Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio, Danny DeVito, Barbra Streisand, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Jon Hamm and Chris Rock.
Hollywood messes with Mitch? Some 60 silver screen stars are contributing to Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes’ campaign to unseat Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014.
