Occupy Sympathizers to Attend Opulent 'One Percent' Obama Fundraiser

By this point, honestly, the hypocrisy speaks for itself:

The Obama Victory Fund 2012 will host the event at ABC Carpet & Home in Manhattan’s upscale Flatiron District, according to the official online invitation. Special guests are expected to include hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, New Age self-help guru Deepak Chopra, and culinary bigwig Jean-Georges Vongerichten, among others.

Prospective partygoers can choose from three levels of tickets, "Event Chair" ($35,800), "Event Host" ($10,000), or for those with shallower pockets, "Gala Attendee" ($1,000 a piece).

Their massive wealth notwithstanding, Simmons and Chopra were both vocal supporters of the “Occupy” movements, and were named to TheBlaze.com’s list of the “Top Ten Richest Celebrities Supporting "Occupy Wall Street."

Simmons (number two on the list) is worth an estimated $325 million, while Chopra (number four) has, thanks to an array of bestselling books and a popular offering of high-priced "healing" seminars, amassed of fortune worth approximately $80 million, placing both men firmly in the much-maligned "1 percent" of ultra-wealthy Americans who Occupiers allege are gaming the federal government and not paying their fair share in taxes.
