Rough sign when the private equity guy who hosted the party reaches for the parachute
Marc Leder, who hosted the now-infamous fundraiser in Boca Raton (and also hosts parties in the Hamptons where people get to do the 1% wild thing
in the pool -- not that there's anything wrong with that
) releases this statement to Fortune
In a statement first given to Fortune, Leder says: "I hosted a fundraiser for an old friend in May. I believe all Americans should have the opportunity to succeed, to improve their lives, and to build even better lives for their children. I have supported people from both political parties who share this view and make it a priority, even though their ideas on how to achieve it may differ."
