Bradford Freeman is an old friend of President Bush and one of a handful described as a member of his inner circle. Freeman is also Bush's California fundraising leader, and he loves to tell the story of how the president-elect called him with what Freeman hoped would be a prestigious appointment as an ambassador or maybe a secret agent. The kind of reward that, in the realpolitik of campaign finance, a rainmaker like Freeman might realistically anticipate.

OPINION
November 24, 2004
The two most disgusting headlines in The Times Nov. 20: Page 13 -- "Top Bush Fundraisers Move On to Inaugural; L.A. financier Bradford Freeman is among those who will seek the bash's unlimited donations." Page 26 -- "12 Million Families in the U.S. Pained by Hunger." I suggest that with our young men and women dying and being maimed, and millions without sufficient food, our president should have a nice family gathering and get the food to the poor and see that our brave soldiers come home from this unholy war.

Presumptive GOP presidential nominee George W. Bush's fund-raising machine has revved up again, adding almost $6 million to his coffers in March despite earlier predictions that he had exhausted Republicans' generosity, according to reports filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission. The Texas governor had already smashed all fund-raising records for presidential candidates, but donations received last month brought his total to a staggering $77 million.

The center's analysis showed that 60 guests to the mansion donated or raised more than $2.2 million for Bush's campaigns.
