Did President Obama not get the memo? The election is over. You don't need to tap L.A.'s rich people for campaign money anymore. You won.

Obama's coming to town June 7 to get some more of that ripe SoCal cash so he can help the Democratic National Committee fight the Republicans during next year's election.

Upcoming Events

You want access to your leader, you say? Democracy now, you demand? It'll cost you: $10,000 a plate or $32,400 to be called a "co-chair," says THR.
