Laura "Foreclosure" Richardson makes it to the party!
Barbra Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg were no-shows at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser the two co-hosted Monday night, held at the Los Angeles home of television producer John Wells.
President Obama spoke at the event, and other co-hosts included Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams.
Other notables in the crowd, according to wire reports, included Judd Apatow, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Reps. Howard Berman, Brad Sherman, Judy Chu and Laura Richardson.
The price to be a co-host was $30,400 per couple, and included a photo with Obama—though POTUS said photo ops weren't the point of the evening.
"I hope you understand why we're here tonight,'' said Obama. "It's not to take a picture with the president. We're here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."
