Bill pushes his heart/health scheduling 20 fundraisers in 1 month.

The main story is the same old, same old Clinton fundraiser - in secret luxury location. $500 minimum donation for admission to the event, and $2700 to get a photo w/him. The semi-secret schedule is Pittsburgh at 12 noon; Bethlehem at 4:30 p.m. and Scranton later in the evening. Interestingly, the announced Pittsburgh co-host, Penguins CEO Morehouse is having heart valve repair/bypass surgery tomorrow, so is highly unlikely to be hosting anything 2 days later. And coincidentally, Bill Clinton has been hospitalized twice with heart disease, including a quadruple by-pass surgery.

According to the report, Bill Clinton is scheduled for 20 fundraisers across the country in the month of December. TWENTY.

Three of these fund raisers are scheduled for the same day in Pennsylvania.
Clinton will appear at a 4:30 p.m. Hillary for America event in Bethlehem, where tickets begin at $500 per person. For $2,700, attendees can have their photo taken with the Democratic ex-president.

An event listing on Hillary Clinton's campaign website said the address would be provided to those purchasing tickets.

The Clinton campaign declined to offer additional details on the Bethlehem event or other fundraisers scheduled that day in Pittsburgh and Scranton.


Would any cardio doctor approve this schedule for a 69 year old patient with his health history? Would anyone who cared about the man? If he were my Dad or spouse, I'd say, WTF are you trying to do? Kill yourself?

But there is the money factor. When HRC visited the elite Fox Chapel suburb for her Conversations with Hillary fundraiser, photos were also $2700 each. Her handlers were adept at lining donors up, moving them next to HRC for a photo, and herding them out to make room for the next in line. Average time - 10 seconds. There were no conversations with her in the photo line. Let's say things slow down a bit with Bill - to 15 seconds per photo op. That's 4 photos per minute, times 60 minutes, which equals a rate of 240 photos in an hour. That translates to an hourly rate of $ 548,000. That's even more lucrative than HRC's 30 minute speeches for $200,000/$275,000.

"A Conversation with President Bill Clinton,” costing supporters at least $500 per plate, is set to start at noon (Thursday, Dec. 10). The invitation refers to “a momentous event in support of Hillary Clinton” but shrouds the venue in mystery, saying only donors will be given the location.

A Democratic source confirmed the site as the luxury Lexus Club in the Uptown hockey and concert venue. The invitation lists Penguins CEO David Morehouse, who once worked for Clinton, as a co-host. However, the team announced Monday that Morehouse is scheduled to undergo heart valve repair and bypass surgery on Tuesday.

Contributors who pledge $2,700 to the fundraiser — the maximum allowable individual donation for a primary election — can get their photo taken with Bill Clinton, according to the invitation circulated by email and posted to the campaign website.

The former president will headline at least 20 fundraisers for his wife's campaign across the country this month.

1. Scranton fundraiser, 7:45-9:45 p.m.;a very long and exhausting day.

SCRANTON — Former President Bill Clinton will raise money for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, on Thursday at the Radisson at Lackawanna Station hotel.

The fundraiser is set for 7:45 to 9:45 p.m. The event is not open to the public. Tickets range from $500 to $2,700 per person and are available at www.hillaryclinton.com/ticketed-events/conver sation-clinton-dec-10-3.

A $2,700 contribution earns the donor a picture with Mr. Clinton.

Mr. Clinton is also scheduled to attend fundraisers in Bethlehem and Pittsburgh the same day.
