U. S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz tries to take care of her fundraisers.
Wasserman Schultz begged the White House for an invitation to a May 13 state dinner for Democratic high roller Mitchell Berger of Fort Lauderdale, according to an e-mail from Democratic National Committee files posted on WikiLeaks.
The dinner was held for the leaders of five Nordic Counties — Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Wasserman Schultz told the White House that Berger deserved an invitation to the dinner because “he is a major supporter and helped us a lot on the Iran vote.”
The e-mail doesn’t explain how Berger helped on the Iran vote.
Approval of the agreement with Iran by the Obama Administration is controversial among Jewish voters and others in Wasserman Schultz’s Broward district. Her support for the agreement remains an issue in her Democratic primary race against Tim Canova, who came out against the treaty during a televised debate on Sunday.
