Barbra Streisand penned a letter to Democrats that was sent out on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) email list, pleading for donations.
“We’re just weeks from the most important election in a generation and every single thing Democrats like you and I spent a lifetime fighting for is on the line,” Streisand wrote. “ Republican Super PACs are pounding President Obama and Democratic candidates with millions of dollars of vicious attack ads. And, they could tip the balance of the election for Tea Party extremists. That would be a disaster for America and we can’t let it happen. We must close the funding gap.”
Streisand, one of Hollywoods biggest Democratic supporters, recently mocked Mitt Romney at a concert in Brooklyn. She also wrote an op-ed to The Huffington Post that explained why President Obama is the “clear choice” over Romney.
