$5 Raffle Ticket Buys Dinner With Obama

obama Washington DC - In return for a $5 donation to his reelection campaign, President Barack Obama is offering supporters a chance to participate in a raffle to win a casual dinner with him at an unstated location. In an e-mail to supporters, the president says his campaign will raffle off four tickets for the casual dinner. “We rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford–and I want to spend time with a few of you,” Obama’s e-mail reads. “So if you make a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of the four supporters to sit down with me for dinner. Please donate $5 or more today.” Describing the event as a casual meal among friends, the e-mail goes on to imply that the dinner will be a chance for the president and four lucky supporters to share stories and ideas about national policy.  More
