Bill Maher Gives $2 Million to Democratic Super PACs
Wealthy Democratic donors are going all out to help their party win back the House and Senate in the midterms. And comedian Bill Maher has again flashed his cash, donating $2 million to super PACs affiliated to both House and Senate Dems. The comedian has occasionally written smaller checks to specific Dem candidates lately, but his two $1 million donations are his biggest since the 2012 Obama campaign. On Aug. 20, he donated $1 million each to House Majority PAC and Senate Majority PAC. Director Steven Spielberg also donated a total of $400,000 to the groups, according to the latest filings, while Newsweb Corp. Chairman Fred Eychaner donated a total of $8 million to House Majority PAC and Senate Majority PAC, making him the biggest single donor to the groups last month.
