Hollywood Glitterati Max Out Donations to Obama

George Clooney, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are among the Hollywood celebrities who have given the maximum contributions allowable to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.


Oscar winner Clooney has made a $2,500 contribution to Obama for the primary election and another $2,500 for the general election, plus $30,800 to the DNC, according to campaign contribution data on the OpenSecrets.org website.


Under federal election campaign finance law for 2011-2012, an individual may give $2,500 to a candidate for each election — the primary and the general — and $30,800 to a national party committee, such as the DNC or the Republican National Committee (RNC).


Hanks, a two-time Oscar winner, also made two $2,500 contributions to Obama’s re-election campaign and $30,800 to the DNC, as did filmmaker Spielberg.


Actor Michael Douglas has given Obama $2,000, and singer-songwriters Neil Young and James Taylor have both donated the $30,800 maximum to the DNC, plus two $2,500 contributions to Obama.


Directors Ron Howard, Rob Reiner and Cameron Crowe have contributed to the DNC.


But not all celebrities are backing Obama’s re-election campaign. Comedian and political commentator Dennis Miller gave $250 to Herman Cain’s campaign in September. Actor and economist Ben Stein gave $1,500 to Rep. Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign, and $250 to Republican Rep. Allen West of Florida.


Real estate mogul and host of “The Apprentice” Donald Trump gave $30,000 to the RNC, $1,000 to Rep. West, $1,000 to Republican Rep. Pete King of New York, and $2,500 to California Republican Rep. Ed Royce.
