When you're as famous as George Clooney, throwing a mega-fundraiser for someone as famous as the leader of the free world, you want a caterer as famous as Wolfgang Puck.

TMZ has learned ... the Spago impresario has been hired to feed the 150 people who are each shelling out $40,000 to rub elbows with Obama at George Clooney's house this Thursday.

Our sources say Wolfgang and company have signed a confidentiality agreement and have been told in no uncertain terms to treat the event as top secret. 

We're told there will be a special menu -- not the standard Wolfgang catering -- and, as one source put it, "The food is going to be a lot better than the Oscars" -- Wolfgang caters the Governor's Ball that follows the academy awards.

For $40K, I would have to rub more than elbows!!! Seriously, these events are no more and no less than EVERY other previous presidential in***bents. It will be hilarious to see how haters act like its the first mega political event they ever heard of :) and of course their candidate would never do such a thing. Well actually Romney doesn't have to!! :)

Let me add my comment quickly before the racists and republican crazies make disparaging comment against this president like they have done from day one. Obama 2012, 4 more years of this great president.

This is going to be one of those articles that turn into a Dem/left/liberal vs Rep/right/conservative thing in the comment section. Why? Because that's what you've been trained to do your whole lives, to get caught up in mindless partisan rhetoric instead of asking the real questions. You're easier to govern that way.

A second man has come forward with a lawsuit against actor John Travolta.

The unidentified male masseur is being repped by the same attorney who filed the initial sexual battery lawsuit against the Oscar nominated actor. According to the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday morning in Federal Court in Los Angeles, the second victim alleges that while working at an unspecified resort in Atlanta, Georgia on January 28, 2012, he did an in-room massage on Travolta. According to the docs, Travolta was staying on the 15th floor of the upscale resort, and he was referred to as Mr. White. The Plaintiff doesn't normally do in-room massages and asked a co-worker to take the assignment, but he declined because "Travolta has been banned from a spa that the coworker used to work at in Los Angeles."

On the morning of the massage Travolta had "a strange demeanor, bloodshot eyes and climbed onto the already setup massage table...Travolta removed the entire sheet from his body, and he claimed the sheets were sticky and could not tolerate the heat...Travolta further indicated that he likes a lot of "Glutes" work meaning a massage on his buttocks...While he was massaging near Travolta's buttocks area, Travolta would open his legs and spread his butt cheeks open and had a full erection and would maneuver in a way to try to force Doe Plaintiff No. 2 to touch his anus and around his anus."

As the massage came to an end "Travolta suddenly turned on his stomach with his legs wide open with a full erection. He then tried to force Doe Plaintiff No. 2's hand on Travolta's scrotum. Then, Travolta started to grab, rub and caress Doe Plaintiff no. 2's upper thighs and buttocks....Travolta still had an erection and wanted his abdominals done, but Travolta's erection was in the way and he refused to have his penis covered by a sheet of a pillow case cover...Travolta started masturbating about 15 minutes left in the session, and Doe Plaintiff No.2, said he had to go," the docs state.

The masseur "complained to all of his supervisors and many coworkers to no avail." Travolta allegedly went down "to the spa that Plaintiff No. 2 worked at, which is part of the resort Travolta was staying at, as opposed to having Doe Plaintiff No. 2 go to his room. Travolta DEMANDED that Doe Plaintiff No. 2 come back and do it again, and he refused," the lawsuit asserts.

According to Access Atlanta, Travolta was spotted eating dinner at The Palm restaurant in the swanky enclave of Atlanta, Buckhead aroound January 25 2012, and he was in town filming the movie Killing Season with Robert De Niro in Georgia.

Travolta's pit-bull attorney, Marty Singer, told us on Monday, that "The problem in America is anyone can sue anyone. However, in this case this unidentified plaintiff and his lawyer will regret they filed this fabricated suit. We intend to sue both of them for malicious prosecution.

I wonder how many arrests will be made of citizens protesting the IOTUS (H.R. 347).
Oh wait, it's hollyweird. They love this socialist POS.
Your rights are being stripped right under your noses, yet you continue to be the sheeple he counts on for votes.

Ugh, I missed the deadline to chip into the campaign to enter to go to this. Oh well.


I realize this will probibly become a debate between the Obama lovers and haters. But could the haters refrain from blaming Obama for things he can't control...like gas prices and who was at the white house correspondence dinner. Just saying...kinda pointless.

They should have had the fundraiser at John Travolta's house. After dinner, he'd whack everyone off.
