The Super Bowl. Lady Gaga. March Madness. Tickets to any one of these events are extremely costly, but for the right price, House Democrats are willing to put them into a donor's hands.

The Washington Free Beacon reported on the exchange of highly sought-after tickets for political gifts:

• A gift of $10,000 to Michigan Representative John Conyers' reelection effort will land donors two tickets to the Super Bowl.

• Representative Gwen Moore of Wisconsin is asking for $4,000 for a pair of club level seats at the Verizon Center in Washington for a Feb. 25 performance by pop star Lady Gaga.

• Florida Representative Ted Deutch is looking for donors who can be enticed by an upcoming Pink show at the Verizon Center.

• Democratic Reps. Jim Moran of Virginia and Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland are offering tickets to March's NCAA basketball tournament for $1,000 apiece.

Neither the House members holding the events nor the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee responded to the Free Beacon's requests for comment.
