SAN DIEGO — President Barack Obama is expected to attend a political fundraiser in May at the La Jolla home of Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs.

Irwin Jacobs┬áJacobs, whose estimated net worth is $1.6 billion, was one of the top five financial supporters of Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012. He stepped down as chairman of Qualcomm — the mobile chip maker — five years ago.

The $10,000-per-person fundraiser is set for May 8 and will benefit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, according to an invitation obtained by The Associated Press. Couples who donate $32,400, the legal maximum, will be invited to a VIP reception and photo opportunity.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is also slated to attend.

    Flaming liberal idiots still spending money on the guy who knows nothing, can’t run for office any longer but still can find time to do fundraising. . Nancy piglosi is going to be there and people still want to attend? People still think the GOP is the party of old rich people but yet you have this idiot worth 1.6 billion hosting another group of idiot millionaires spending money on people who claim the GOP are the rich people who hate working class people! Wake up people. Limousine Liberals are destroying our once great country. Russia is attacking another country and our esteemed leaders obnama and biteme are on vacation….simply amazing that people still want to give these idiots their money.
