Clinton fundraiser blasts Obama, backs McCain09/29/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Among the legions of Hillary Clinton supporters who have said they will not support Barack Obama for president, none has seemingly gathered more media attention than Lynn Forester de Rothschild.
Rothschild is a member of the DNC's Democrats Abroad chapter and splits her time living in London and New York. She was one of Clinton's top fundraisers, bringing in more than $100,000 for her presidential campaign. Rothschild built a multimillion-dollar telecommunications company before marrying international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild.
WMNF spoke with Rothschild this afternoon and asked why she calls Barack Obama an elitist. Obama owns one home and one car; whereas John McCain owns eight houses and 13 cars.
Rothschild now supports McCain â€“ she is fundraising and doing interviews with media organizations on his behalf.
