A White House increasingly desperate to turn the House Democratic so it can dictate its second term agenda has dispatched First Lady Michelle Obama to three fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee in Washington Tuesday.
The events will all be at private residences, suggesting she will gather with smallish groups of rich Democrats who will donate a hefty amount for the privilege of attending.
Two of the events are walled off to press. A single member of a print news organization will be permitted to cover the third.
Michelle has begun fundraising at a torrid pace, with today’s appearances coming on the heels of three gatherings she hosted in a single day last week – one in Boston for the Senate campaign of Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and two in New York for the DNC.
Meanwhile, President Obama appeared at two fundraisers for House Democrats last week and will be raising money later this week in the traditional Democratic gold mine of California.
