Morgan Freeman, an actor who probably needs no introduction this time, joined the ranks of million dollar donors to fund President Obama’s reelection this November. Recently, Freeman made a donation of $1 million to super PAC (Priorities USA Action), a pro-President Obama political action committee. The actor’s contribution will be reported to the group’s federal disclosures on Friday.
“President Obama has done a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances. I am proud to lend my voice—and support—to those who defend him.”
The Democrat-friendly Priorities USA Action so far has raised $20.4 million but is still far behind Restore Our Future (Mitt Romney-backer), which has raked in over $81.5 million of donations. But will these figures matter when Obama (Barack Almighty?) has ‘God’ on his side?
Anyway, along with Freeman are comedians Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler, and directors J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg who comprise the Hollywood royalties donating to Priorities USA Action.
