Obama fundraiser this week at home of recount lawyer – who represented Bush

by Dara Kam | August 22nd, 2011

Barry Richard, the lawyer who was instrumental in keeping Al Gore out of the White House a decade ago, is hosting a fundraiser for President Obama at his Tallahassee home on Wednesday.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Congresswoman from South Florida, will be the guest star at the fundraiser (suggested donations are $100) at the home of Richard and his wife Allison Tant. Wasserman Schultz served in both the state House and Senate before going to Washington.

Richard, a silver-haired Democrat, was a key figure in the historic recount legal battle known as “Bush vs. Gore,” arguing on behalf of George W. Bush all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be the guest star!!

    Oh WOW!!

    Debbie has star power, I can’t wait to see the faces in the crowd at THAT party, a lot of hotties! William Rehquist, Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, maybe even Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice! I hope Anthony Weiner gets an invitation plus one for his physical mentor Chuck Schumer! I wonder how many underage children will be provided for the afterparty?
