GOP House Whip Raises Cash At Britney Spears' Concert
As Huffington Post reports, "There was more than one whip at last night's Britney Spears concert in Washington DC."
Indeed, sources tell the Sleuth that House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) held a fundraiser last night at the pop star's "Circus" tour concert at the Verizon Center, where, as J. Freedom du Lac reports, Spears dressed as a dominatrix and carried a bejeweled whip.
Cantor had to skip much of his party's big annual fundraiser last night for House GOP candidates to go rake in money for his own campaign at Ms. Baby One More Time's show. He left the GOP dinner around 9 p.m., we're told, to head over to the Verizon Center.
We're told by one GOP leadership aide that the conservative whip didn't exactly enjoy himself, but did what he had to do to save his party.
"If suffering through a Britney Spears concert will raise one more dime to help Republicans take back the House, then next time there should be 100 more members sitting there with Cantor," the source says.
Cantor's office declined to discuss the Britney-Eric show, so we weren't able to find out whether he's a closeted Britney fan. The congressman does, however, have a teenage daughter, so we suspect he may know at least a few words from the "Circus" album.
