99 Cents Only store magnate Howard Gold lives next to George Clooney. On Saturday night, both of them threw political fundraisers for would-be 2016 Democratic presidential candidate.
This is great! Tickets went as high as $350k for a couple just to sit at the table with Clinton and Clooney, while they were just $27 each next door for Sanders. Even Clooney himself said the amount of money was obscene:
Clooney: My @hillaryclinton fund-raiser was obscene. So is he really #ImWithHer or is he trolling for Bernie? https://t.co/JAMNLa3JUo

Props to the neighbor for throwing his competing event and exposing the obscenity.
