Lady Lynn Forester De Rothschild Violates Americans Elect Rules With Big Money Party For Jon Huntsman
The fundraiser, held at one of the homes of Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, at 435 East 52nd Street in New York City, was a “cocktail reception” where attendees were required to contribute at least $1,000 in exchange for having drinks and hors d’ouevres with Jon Huntsman, who attended the Lady’s fundraiser himself. The money gathered at Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild’s cocktail party went directly to the Jon Huntsman for President campaign. This is in clear violation of the bylaws of Americans Elect, an organization that Lady de Rothschild belongs to, as a member of the Board of Advisors.
