6. Corn said that donor also hosted orgies. Hypocritical much? Ewww

Hearing Corn describing the fundraiser, it just keeps just getting creepier and creepier. How repellant can you get? This is despicable on so many levels.

11. I was JUST Reading that...to wit:

It was as if the Playboy Mansion met the East End at a wild party at private-equity titan Marc Leder's Bridgehampton estate, where guests cavorted nude in the pool and performed sex acts, scantily dressed Russians danced on platforms and men twirled lit torches to a booming techno beat.
The divorced Sun Capital Partners honcho rented a sprawling beachfront mansion on Surf Side Road for $500,000 for the month of July. Leder's weekly Friday and Saturday night parties have become the talk of the Hamptons -- and he ended them in style last weekend with his wildest bash yet.

7. Interesting NYT article, from January, about Leder, his parties, his relationship with Romney...

It mentions a fundraiser for Romney that might well be THE fundraiser in the videos in the news now, it's not the party described in the snippet I copied, it further down in the article. Here is a snippet from the article:

In a Romney Believer, Private Equity’s Risks and Rewards

IT was, the gossip pages would later report, the talk of the Hamptons — a midsummer night’s bacchanal in the playground of the 1 percent.

Beyond the windswept dunes in Bridgehampton, at a $400,000-a-month oceanfront mansion, bright young things bubbled up and the Champagne flowed fast. Into the small hours, professional dancers in exotic clothing gyrated atop platforms. One couple twirled flaming torches. The sounds of techno boomed over the beach.

The New York Post summed up the evening’s Dionysian mysteries with the following headline: “Nude Frolic in Tycoon’s Pool.”

The Post’s tycoon, and the party’s host, was a financier named Marc J. Leder, and those weekend revels last July had the East End of Long Island buzzing. Like many deal makers, though, Mr. Leder, 50, is virtually unknown outside financial circles. But from his headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla., he presides over a multibillion-dollar private empire. He is a practitioner of a Wall Street art that helped define an age of hyperwealth, and which has now been dragged into the white-hot spotlight of presidential politics: private equity.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/22/business/in-a-romney-believer-private-equitys-risks-and-rewards.html?pagewanted=all

It is worth reading the whole article, especially given the tie-in today re Romney and the videos, imo.

...........


A friend of once-conservative Leder said that after his ex-wife, Lisa -- who claimed he's worth $400 million -- admitted to cheating on him with her 23-year-old tennis coach after 22 years of marriage in 2009, "he went wild." "So many girls think they're dating him. There are least three that I know of."

Leder jetted back to his home in Boca Raton, Fla., last Monday, but told guests he'll return to New York next month for more parties during Fashion Week.
