Daily Caller: Politicians hope Swift puts listeners in giving mood
Politicians hope Swift puts listeners in giving mood
It’s just about every political nerd’s dream.
“Fairytale” songbird Taylor Swift will welcome seven members of Congress, including six Republicans, at her two performances in the District next week.
According to the Sunlight Foundation’s Party Time blog, South Dakota Republican Sen. John Thune, Alabama Republican Rep. Jo Bonner, New York Republican Rep. Michael G. Grimm, Georgia Republican Rep. Tom Price, Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger and North Carolina Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler are scheduled to hold fundraisers during Miss Swift’s first show in the District.
The 21-year-old country-pop singer’s Verizon Center concerts, to be held Tuesday and Wednesday, are sold out.
Georgia Republican Rep. Paul C. Broun is set to visit Miss Swift’s second D.C. concert.
Last year, Mississippi Republican Rep. Gregg Harper, Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn and Mr. Price raised funds at Miss Swift’s Verizon Center event.
The Grammy Award-winning singer is not the first pop star to have political fundraisers at one of her concerts. New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg hosted a fundraiser last year during Lady Gaga’s show in the nation’s capital.
'Jackass' star hospitalized after tumble down stairs
The 31-year-old professional skateboarder took a plunge while “tackling” his neighbor on the stairs.
“Somehow I wound up tumbling down the stairs,” Mr. Margera explained to TMZ. “I tackled my neighbor and fell down the stairs horsing around. I’m still in the hospital.”
Mr. Margera said he doesn’t know how severe his injuries are, but he told the online celebrity news site that he may have broken his arm and some ribs.
