Ari raised lotsa moolah for Rahm's campaign

BROTHER ACT: Rahm Emanuel owes his kid brother big time for his Chicago mayoral victory, says the N.Y. Daily News. William Morris Endeavor honcho Ari Emanuel raised a chunk of Rahm's reported $12 million war chest, including co-hosting a fund-raiser with David GeffenDisney CEO Robert Iger and private-equity investor Haim Saban. According to some estimates, nearly $1 million of the mayor-elect's campaign coffers came from the West Coast, and a nice chunk of that figure came from WME agents and clients. Board member John Fogelman contributed a hefty $100k, and a number of WME agents also pitched in, peeling between $1k and $5k apiece. WME client Donald Trump gave $50k to the campaign despite the fact that he’s a Republican, while Aaron Sorkin contributed $10k and Social Network producer Scott Rudin ponied up $5k. That Ari is one persuasive dude. (2/24a)
