Thereâ€™s a new signatory on ObamaÂ 2012 spam.
In the latest mass email to the campaignâ€™s mailing list, none other thanÂ BeyoncĂ©Â chimes in: â€śJay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!â€ť (Jay â€” you know,Â Jay-Z, her husband. NotÂ Jay Carney).
Itâ€™s the latest in a series of star-studded dinners the campaign is using to whip up enthusiasm among high rollers and small donors alike: whatÂ the New York Post describesÂ as a a $40,000-a-ticket dinner atÂ Jay-Zâ€™s 40/40 Club in Manhattan on Sept. 18. BeyoncĂ©â€™s message indicates the event will follow the pattern of the recentÂ Sarah Jessica ParkerÂ andÂ George Clooney-hosted fundraisersÂ by raffling off a couple seats (plus travel and hotel costs) to donors whoâ€™ve contributed as little as $5.
