Members of the cast of “Scandal” — Guillermo Diaz, Tony Goldwyn, Katie Lowes, Jeff Perry and Bellamy Young — will headline a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in Washington on April 27.

According to an invite, tickets for the event start at $250 per person, with those who raise $5,000 designated as a co-host and invited to a cast reception.

Also scheduled to be at the event are Huma Abedin, campaign vice chair, and Jake Sullivan, senior policy adviser.

“Scandal” executive producer Shonda Rhimes appeared in a recent Clinton campaign ad along with star Kerry Washington and the stars of two other of Rhimes’ shows, Ellen Pompeo of “Grey’s Anatomy” and Viola Davis of “How to Get Away With Murder.” The ad was directed by Goldwyn.

The fundraiser will take place just before a weekend of D.C. events tied to the White House Correspondents Assn. dinner on April 30.

Clinton will be in Los Angeles on Saturday for a fundraiser at the home of George Clooney and his wife Amal.

    I will never watch the show again, they only want the Queen of Corruption in office so they will have more material for the show…
