Forest Whitaker Will Join Hillary Clinton at Fundraiser in Boston
Hillary Clinton will be bringing one of her many celebrity supporters to her next event in Boston.
Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker is set to join the Democratic presidential hopeful at a fundraiser on Thursday night.
Billed as an “Evening with Hillary and Forest Whitaker, Academy Award Winning Actor and Social Activist,” the event will kick off at the State Room at 5 p.m.
If you want to go to the event, tickets aren’t cheap. A “guest” ticket costs $500, while “champion” level passes are going for a whopping $2,700. $45 tickets at the “young professional” status have already sold out, according to Clinton’s website.
This will be the Democratic candidate’s first appearance in Massachusetts since she won the Bay State’s primary on March 1.
Clinton’s Super Tuesday win was somewhat mired in controversy, as her husband and former President Bill Clinton took some heat for visiting polling places on election day, which some say prevented a few citizens from voting. The state found that no violations had occurred during his trips to polling locations in West Roxbury and New Bedford, although a petition calling for his arrest did gain over 100,000 signatures.
Internal emails leading up to and after the primary, obtained by Boston magazine via public records request, did shed some light on how New Bedford city officials handled inquiries from the state Election Commission amid the chaos.
