In light of the recent controversy surrounding Mitt Romney and the negative press targeted at my friend Marc Leder (who hosted the now infamous "47% fundraiser" at his home), I feel to need to show him support. Not Mitt Romney, don't worry; just my friend, Marc. I never could understand how such a sweet, compassionate man like Marc could support Governor Romney's campaign for President, but that certainly does not make him a bad person. He is one of the most giving, kindest people I know.
With regards to the reported wild parties at his home in the Hamptons, I think the press is reaching pretty far on that one. Having attended just about all of those parties, the only wild thing I saw was a couple got drunk and jumped into the pool at the end of the night in their underwear. There was a fire performer and Brazilian Samba dancers and a bunch of kids running around. Pretty tame if you ask me.
I know in the height of election season, every member of the press is thirsty to get that one, exclusive "scoop" that will sell papers, television commercials or banner ads. Certainly, a Romney supporter doesn't deserve to be dragged through the mud because of the insensitive comments made by the candidate he supports. Especially a guy like Marc. He might be part of the 1%, but I know for sure he cares about the 100%.
