Lis Murdoch backs Obama

Shine boss to host London fundraiser

LONDON — Rupert Murdoch might have opened his checkbook for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, but daughter Lis is going one step further in her support of Democratic rival Barack Obama.

The 39-year-old chairman and CEO of production company Shine will host a fundraiser for Obama later this month at her West London home, where the guest list will include an impressive lineup of U.S. expats and high-profile Brits.

Other “event chairs” at the evening, where VIP tickets will cost $2,300, include Gwyneth Paltrow, Warner Bros. U.K. managing director Josh Berger and Julia Moffett, the director of strategy for the BBC World Service Trust.

Event hosts include art collector Kay Saatchi, Joanna Shields, the president of Bebo, and Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, fashion director of Vanity Fair magazine.

Last year, Murdoch senior donated $2,300 to Hillary Clinton’s campaign fund and in 2006 the media mogul, who is known for his conservative views, hosted a fundraiser for her senatorial campaign.

In January, however, his New York Post newspaper endorsed Obama for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
