Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill...is set to hold a fundraiser in New York City on March 22, hosted by longtime Obama supporter Sarah Kovner, former Hillary Clinton raiser Sally Minard and prominent donor Anne Hess.
According to the invitation, obtained by POLITICO's Maggie Haberman, the event is a breakfast fundraiser, and it will be held at Minard's Upper East Side home. The host committee list also bears some notable names, among them Obama bundler Jim Torrey, literary agent Barbara Lowenstein, and producer Maggie Lear, daughter of Norman Lear (Editorial note: These are the showbiz Lears, not the founders of Learjet, which would have been priceless).
Tickets range from $250 to up to $5,000 a plate.
U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill is co-sponsoring a bill with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) which would demand that federal employees keep up-to-date on their federal taxes or risk being issued a pink slip.
McCaskill said in a press release: "All federal employees, not just IRS employees, should be held accountable for failure to pay their federal taxes. This legislation is just common sense."
