Hillary Clinton to Hold Campaign Fundraisers in Los Angeles

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is scheduled to be in the Los Angeles area today to hold two campaign fundraisers and participate in a town hall discussion with digital content creators.

The first fundraiser will be at the home of Napster co-founder and former Facebook president Sean Parker and his wife Alexandra. Tickets are $2,700 per person, the maximum individual contribution under federal law for a candidate seeking his or her party’s presidential nomination or for the general election.

A contributor may make the maximum donation for both the primary and general election campaigns.

The second event is a reception and dinner at the home of investor/philanthropist Marc Nathanson, founder of Falcon Cable, with prices ranging from $33,400 per couple to $100,000 per couple, according to an invitation obtained by City News Service.

The higher amounts are allowed because portions of the donation will go to the Democratic National Committee and various state Democratic parties.

Clinton has held 29 previous fundraisers in the Los Angeles area since declaring her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination on April 12, 2015.

Participants in the town hall will have the opportunity to engage in a conversation and ask the 68-year-old Clinton questions important to their communities and online audiences, according to the campaign.

Clinton’s latest Southland visit coincides with the release by Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee of their final report on the events surrounding the 2012 terrorist attacks in that Libyan city. Four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The report found that the State Department under Clinton’s leadership did an inadequate job of protecting its staff in Benghazi. It also accuses the Obama administration of incompetence at various levels, including a failure to deploy needed military assets to protect the Americans under attack.

“After more than two years and more than $7 million in taxpayer funds, the Committee report has not found anything to contradict the conclusions of the multiple, earlier investigations,” a spokesman for the Clinton campaign said in a statement in response to the report’s release. It said the committee’s chief goal was “to politicize the deaths of four brave Americans in order to try to attack the Obama administration and hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

The committee’s most significant disclosure, which was not directly linked to Benghazi, was that Clinton had used a private email server during her four years as secretary of state. That revelation has triggered investigations into whether classified material was mishandled. Clinton has said she was looking for convenience but regrets the practice.
