Sen. Feinstein Cancels Fundraiser

The Washington Times reports that Sen. Feinstein canceled a fundraiser scheduled for tomorrow. 

Washington lobbyist Heather Podesta mentioned the intelligence committee in an e-mail invitation attached to a formal notice of the event, saying that the lunch at the upscale Charlie Palmer steakhouse in Washington would begin at noon. In the e-mail, she said donors who gave between $1,000 and $2,500 could order up “the Select Committee on Intelligence for the first course.”

Ken Gross, a Washington lawyer who specializes in campaign-finance issues, said it is “pretty typical” to list a senator’s committee assignments on a fundraising invitation.
