‘Ugly Betty’ star pitching in for Hillary Clinton

‘Ugly Betty’ star pitching in for Hillary Clinton

While all eyes were on the auto bailout last week, another bailout of sorts was taking shape: One for Sen. Hillary Clinton, who has racked up $7.5 million in campaign debt.

In this case, it’s not the government who will be pitching in, but instead, “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera.

On Dec. 15, Ferrera will serve as master of ceremonies at a debt-retirement “conversation” with the former first lady at New York City’s Manhattan Center Studios.

While reps for Ferrera didn’t comment as to whether she’ll be making her own personal donation to offset Clinton’s debt, Ferrera’s commitment to the Secretary of State pick has been steadfast.

“She was extremely vocal for her support of Sen. Clinton and she got along great with all the Clintons, in fact,” says one source who was on the campaign trail with both Ferrera and Clinton.

Ferrera announced her support of Clinton in Jan. 2008, and campaigned for her in Nevada and Pennsylvania.

2. There was a story that she owned Mark Penn
something like half of the total debt. I'd help to bail out the small vendors she stiffed but not that guy.

3. It isn't for consulting
It is to pay for the media buys that Penn's firm paid for in advance.

4. That's cool she's doing that.
I need to watch that show more often. Maybe netflix will have it soon.

How great to see more/young people getting involved in politics again this year! I was getting tired of the same group of 2 dozen-ish people.

5. I knew there was yet another reason why I like America Ferrera

She also appeared in an ad for No on Proposition 8.

7. Um, I think you mistook the OP style for a different poster.
But you know what, you really show that Hillary fans are a class act.
