Actually a lot of them were written by different men named John.
Thousands of people were involved in the writings of the sacred texts.
Some were written by men some by women.
Not to disrupt your hidden history, but it’s not hidden.
It’s under tight control.
The Obama campaign hid its payments to Fusion GPS through its law firm, Perkins Coie. The arrangement is similar to the one that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee used to pay Fusion for its investigation of then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
But it’s unclear how Weinstein planned to acquire the tickets for the White House Correspondents’ Association’s annual splashy affair, which are sold only to member news organizations — and his donation of them runs afoul of the WHCA’s anti-scalping (even for charity!) policies, which ban buyers from raffling or selling off their seats to the media dinner.
One of those items jumped out at us. Unlike the other A-Listy events, tickets to the WHCD aren’t typically the province of Hollywood elite, though powerful folks have certainly found ways to secure seats for themselves. (Weinstein has attended the dinner before on multiple years.) But the keepers of the oft-coveted tables are adamant that correspondents themselves are the ones with access. “Only WHCA members can buy tickets to our annual dinner,” WHCA Executive Director Steve Thomma confirms. “And it is our policy that those tickets may not be sold at auction or raffle to raise money for other organizations or for any commercial purpose.”
