The director and DreamWorks Animation CEO’s contributions to the Super PAC Priorities USA were revealed today in a filing to the Federal Elections Commssion. The electronic filing shows that Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg made their donations on September 24. Katzenberg, one of the largest donors to the Obama campaign, hosted a private meeting with President Obama and former President Bill Clinton at his home on October 7. The meeting also included 11 other deep-pocket donors to Obama’s re-election campaign. Later that day Katzenberg also co-hosted a $25,000 per ticket campaign dinner for Obama at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant in the Ritz Carlton in downtown LA. Katzenberg also donated $2 million to Priorities USA in May 2011, and Spielberg gave $100,000 in July 2011. Morgan Freeman donated $1 million to the super PAC in June this year, matching a February contribution by Bill Maher.
