Members Of Congress Use Taylor Swift Concert As A Fund-Raising Opportunity


If you have long dreamed of attending a Taylor Swift concert in Washington, DC and sitting alongside a member of Congress, your time has come.

According to the Washington Post, a number of lawmakers are offering that exact opportunity, and prices range from 15 hundred to 25 hundred dollars.

On the lower end of the spectrum is the invitation being extended by Ohio Republican Steve Stivers.

For an extra grand, he'll let the ticket buyer bring a friend.

That's actually kind of a bargain, as others are charging 25 hundred bucks per person.



They include Representatives Gwen Moore and Cheri Bustos, both Democrats who hail from Wisconsin and Illinois, respectively.

Lois Frankel of Florida has a similar offer on the table.

Though the concert companions vary, all of the packages are for Swift's July appearance at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals major league baseball team.

For comparison, public tickets being sold by Tickets.com start just under 60 dollars for not so fabulous seats, but that's on the second day Swift added due to high demand.

VIP packages put together by the tour's planners can be had for between about 200 and 500 dollars.

Those include many different perks, like lithographs, official tour packs, and access to a pre-show party.
