CNN reporter's tweet included link to Obama fundraiser invite
Published September 17, 2012 FoxNews.com
A CNN political reporter last week tweeted a link to a fundraising page for the Obama campaign -- one selling tickets for as much as $5,000 for a Milwaukee, Wis., reception.
The first half of the tweet was a just-the-facts statement about Wisconsin emerging as a full-fledged battleground state.
“Wisconsin officially a battleground: President Barack Obama going to Milwaukee next weekend,” reporter Peter Hamby wrote on his Twitter account Thursday.
The tweet, though, ended with a link to a donation page asking people to buy tickets -- ranging from $250 to $5,000 a person -- to an event this coming Saturday at the Milwaukee Theater.
"Please join President Barack Obama for a reception with supporters like you in Milwaukee," the donation page says.
CNN did not respond Monday morning to a request for an explanation about the tweet or whether the cable network has taken any action in response to it.
