Morgan Freeman gives $1 million to pro-Obama super PAC

News

Priorities USA Action, a super PAC supporting President Obama, brought in $6 million last month. Actor Morgan Freeman is responsible for one-sixth of that, having donated a million himself.

"President Obama has done a remarkable job in terrible circumstances," he said in a statement. "He has ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the healthcare of every American with a preexisting condition. He has recognized the full equality of all our brothers and sisters and placed impressive, accomplished women on the Supreme Court. In return for this he is being targeted by hundreds of millions of dollars in special-interest money. I for one am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him."

Last month Freeman said in an interview that "we're going to be in a lot of trouble" if Obama isn't reelected because "the people on the other side of the fence scare me."

Back in February liberal comedian Bill Maher also donated $1 million to the super PAC.
