Congressman Reynolds: Will Rock For Cash
Add Rep. Tom Reynolds (R-N.Y.) to the list of members of Congress who are going to show their supporters a rockin' good time in exchange for hard cold cash.
Following the lead of several of his colleagues, Republicans and Democrats alike, Reynolds is planning to host a fundraiser at one of the hottest upcoming tickets in town: the Police reunion tour.
The subject line of a mass email sent to potential Reynolds supporters Friday reads: "Want to go see the Police in cocert(sic)...with Tom Reynolds??" The message inside the email says, "Then let me know and I will get you a ticket to join us..."
An attached invitation asks supporters to join Reynolds - a member of the powerful Ways and Means Committee and a GOP deputy whip, as the invitation duly notes - at the Police concert Monday night, Nov. 5, at the Verizon Center. As you expected, it won't be cheap.
For the pleasure of sitting with Congressman Reynolds to watch Sting and his old band mates live in concert for the first time in 25, the cost will be $1,500 per person. (Or buy two and get the discount rate of $2,500!)
