For Aaron Sorkin, politics is personal and professional. The screenwriter, whose portfolio includes The American President, Charlie Wilson’s War and The West Wing, is a long-time donor to Democratic candidates and committees. During the 2004 presidential election, he teamed up with Rob Reiner to produce a campaign spot for MoveOn.org’s PAC. Sorkin backed Obama in ’08, attending fundraisers and campaign events, as well as giving the maximum allowed individual donation. He’s donated to both Barack Obama and the DNC this year. He’s also repped by none other than Ari Emanuel.
