Eye View Hollywood, Ari Is Getting His Entourage Together To Help His Brother Rahm, What Are They Drinking?

October 24, 2010

Five well-known Hollywood Democrats — David Geffen, Bob Iger, Peter Chernin, Haim Saban, and Ari Emanuel — are hosting a November 4th fundraiser for Ari’s brother Rahm Emanuel in his bid to become Chicago’s next mayor. Rahm, a former Democratic U.S. Representative from Illinois’ 5th Congressional District, resigned as President Obama’s White House Chief Of Staff on October 1st. The Hollywood fundraiser will be held at Saban’s palatial Beverly Hills home.

 Geffen is the former DreamWorks SKG partner and longtime music and film mogul. Iger is the CEO of the Walt Disney Company. Chernin is the former No. 2 of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and now a busy Fox TV and film producer. Saban is a private equity investor and entertainment producer best known for making the Power Rangers television show into a worldwide hit.  And Ari is the co-CEO of WME Entertainment investment banking and the personality used for Ari Gold in the HBO show Entourage.

Technically, Emanuel has not physically resided in Chicago for the previous 365 days and is not eligible to run for mayor, so California residents donating money for local Chicago issues makes just has much sense. What are they drinking????
