Having donated nearly $10 million to Democrats, real estate developer and film producer Steve Bing is one of the party’s biggest contributors in Hollywood. A Clinton stalwart, Bing donated heavily to Team Hillary in the run-up to the2008 presidential election, even as much of the celebrity set switched their allegiance to Obama. He’s also a major contributor to the William J. Clinton Foundation and in 2009, flew former President Clinton to North Korea on his private plane to lobby for the release of detained journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Bing might not have been behind Obama since the beginning, but he’s still regularly cutting five-figure checks to Democratic committees and attending re-election fundraisers.
