Which celebrity convention speakers gave to campaigns?


Kerry Washington at the Democratic National Convention.


According to the Reliable Source, some of the celebrities who appeared on stage at the Republican and Democratic national conventions haven't given any money to campaigns this year — and some gave big. 

Kerry Washington, who spoke at the DNC, hasn't donated to a campaign in two years. Clint Eastwood, who hasn't contributed at all, got way more than his money's worth for his now-famous dialogue with a chair at the RNC.

Two political starlets who spoke at the DNC did give, and give generously: Eva Longoria
has given $75,800 to Democratic campaign funds, and Scarlett Johannsen has given $14,000 to the Obama Victory Fund. 

You can find a few celebrities who didn't attend the conventions on our Campaign Finance Tracker list of the top donors to Democratic super PACs, including Morgan Freeman and Chelsea Handler.
