Obama’s celebrity bundlers

Of the 87 bundlers joining the Obama re-election effort last quarter, actor and director Tyler Perry is probably the best known.

Ranked No. 19 on the Forbes list of top-earning celebs, he has the wealth and connections to have raised more than $500,000.

Perry certainly isn’t the only star in the Obama camp.

Spiritual guru Deepak Chopra also became a fundraiser last quarter, bringing in between $100,000 and $200,000.

“Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria has raised more than $200,000. Actor Wendell Pierce, best known for his role on “The Wire,” has raised more than $50,000.

Vogue Editor Anna Wintour and Hollywood moguls Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Katzenberg have each raked in more than $500,000.

TV personality Giselle Fernandez, former co-host of “Access Hollywood” and a second-season contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” is also bringing in donations.

We’d like to compare Obama’s celebrity list to Mitt Romney’s, but unfortunately, Obama is the only candidate voluntarily releasing the names of his fundraisers.

That’s a shame. It would be interesting to know whether Ted Nugent has been designated an official bundler.

    If in fact Ted Negent is Bundling for Mitt Romney, at least one thing is clear, he believes it is the Right Direction for our Country.
