Judiciary Chairman Conyers to Host Super Bowl Fundraiser

A report by the Sunlight Foundation's Party Time says that Rep. John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has Super Bowl tickets to sell. For $5,000, supporters can get a ticket to the big game and two seats at a fundraising luncheon for the congressman.

Rep. John ConyersJan. 26 3:55 p.m.: This post has been corrected.

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has Super Bowl tickets to sell to donors willing to pay $5,000 apiece for them, according to our friends at the Sunlight Foundation’s Party Time.

A check for $5,000 will get you one ticket to the game and two tickets to a fundraiser at Miami’s always-popular Joe’s Stone Crab restaurant. The event is an opportunity to rub shoulders with Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and donate to his leadership PAC, America Forward Leadership PAC

We put in a call to Conyers’ office this morning and left a message asking how many Super Bowl tickets he has, how he got them and, of course, the all-important question: Are they close to the 50-yard line? In the meantime, we’re putting an “X” in our Super Bowl Blitz chart for Conyers.

If you don’t want to brave the crowds at the Super Bowl itself, or already have tickets, you can still rub shoulders with the chairman over the likes of ginger salmon by attending his luncheon. Those tickets aren’t cheap, either. You’ll pay $5,000 to stand out as a “PAC host,” $2,500 to be a “PAC supporter” and $1,000 for individuals.

If you decide to drop in on the event, please let us know. Inquiring minds are always curious about who shows up at these events.

Correction, Jan. 26, 2010: This post originally said that Rep. John Conyers’ PAC is called "Moving America Forward." The correct name of Conyers’ PAC is "America Forward Leadership PAC.
