The authorities are still sorting out just how much of California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s $5.2M re-election war chest may have been hijacked by her former campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee. But contribution records show that Hollywood has a stake in the case. Among organizations that sent money to her campaign are IATSE ($30,000), Sony ($17,200), Disney ($16,600), News Corp ($15,625) and the MPAA ($14,700. First California Bank, which is holding the campaign funds for Feinstein and others involved in Durkee’s alleged fraud, will not allow anyone access to the accounts without signing a release that indemnifies the bank against lawsuits. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have allegedly been misappropriated, according to the FBI.
