About 2,000 march in Hollywood immigration rally
Senate seat that was held by Frank Lautenberguntil he died in June. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has set a special election for Oct. 16, and Booker has become the latest cause celebre among rich Hollywood politicos. In April, for example, a party at producer Jerry Weintraubs Beverly Hills mansion raised $500,000. Co-hosts included Disney CEO Bob Iger, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Sony CEO Michael Lyntonand Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara. STORY: Cory Booker’s Secret Twitter Messages With Stripper Revealed And a few weeks ago, billionaire businessman Ron Burkle, partial owner of the NHLs Pittsburgh Penguins, co-hosted a Booker fundraiser along with Michael Eisner, J.J. Abrams, Jennifer Garner, Weintraub, Damon and Affleck. Lloyd Marcus, chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee, said the email invoking Bookers ties to Hollywood was particularly effective, generating thousands of small donations, as opposed to the donations of up to $10,000 apiece that Booker raises at celebrity events. “Our supporters were motivated to offer a counter-force to Hollywood,” Marcus said. “It became something of a David vs. Goliath.” PHOTOS: The Top Celebrity Political Twitter Commentators Other conservatives, such as Sarah Palin, are also picking up on the theme. “Unemployment nearly doubled, taxes skyrocketed, and violent crime increased,” Palin said this week, describing Newark under Booker.

In fact, his natural expressions and amazing theatrical performance was so good I might actually watch ‘Pretty Little Liars’ for him. Carrie Ann (to Brant – echoing my thoughts): “You are not who I thought you were.” Score: 27 (9s across the board) Valerie (‘Valerie,’ ‘Mary Tyle Moore Show,’ ‘Rhoda) and Tristan – Grace Kelly meets Freddie Mercury theme (Cha Cha) Tristan’s making Val work harder. He’s clearly over his awe of her illness and television background, which also shows he feels more comfortable with her. This week Tristan provided Val with an elegant choreography that fit her capabilities and pace. Unfortunately, she clearly forgot the steps during the dance. The parts she remembered looked smooth, but the parts she forgot Tristan literally dragged her from point a to point b. Her first dance remains the best to date. I love that the judges were also honest with her. Score: 16 (in a rare moment Bruno underscores with Len) Bill Engvall (Comedian) and Emma – Lone Ranger theme (Pasa Doble) Bill is a great natural dancer. His posture, arms and leg placement are great. He does a great job of getting Emma from point a to b and appears to match his partner without seeming overwhelmed by her. This week the judges acknowledged his talent without allowing his age to prejudice their scores. This time, they gave him exactly what he deserved and no less. Score: 24 Amber (‘Glee’) and Derek – Great Gatsby theme (Charleston) First off, who the hell did Amber’s makeup? She’s naturally pretty, but the lipstick and eye shadow were too dark and looked clown-ish.
‘DWTS’ Week 3: The Stars go Hollywood
Immigration has been a rare area of bipartisan cooperation. Confidence was boosted earlier in the year on a sweeping overhaul of the system and a path to citizenship for millions, but the crisis over Syria, and now the partial shutdown of the federal government, has diverted lawmakers’ attention. The chances an immigration bill makes its way through Congress before the year ends are slim. But advocates want to make sure reform stays front and center despite lawmakers’ pressing concerns. “This cannot be stopped,” said activist Eliseo Medina, marching in Los Angeles. “This is growing.” The Alliance for Citizenship, a broad coalition of organizations that includes the AFL-CIO, the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center, is driving the mobilization. Twenty cities in California were staging events Saturday to show their support. Among the eight immigration-related measures Brown signed was AB4, sponsored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, which creates a statewide standard for how local agencies comply with the federal Secure Communities program, which requires law enforcement to check the immigration status of anyone who is arrested. The governor vetoed a similar measure last year because it did not let officials detain those convicted of crimes such as child abuse and drug trafficking, exemptions that were removed from this year’s version. The governor also approved a bill allowing lawyers to be admitted to the California bar even if they are living in the U.S. illegally. Previously: Thousands of immigrants and supporters are expected to march through Hollywood on Saturday as part of an effort taking place across the nation pushing for immigration reform. The event called “March of the Stars” will last several hours and is just one of more than 150 that are part of what organizers are billing as a “National Day for Dignity and Respect.” The mobilization is a prelude to a rally and free concert Tuesday on the National Mall in Washington.
