Seven members of Congress to hold fundraisers at Taylor Swift concert

It’s just about every conservative political nerd’s “fairytale.”

“Fairytale” songbird Taylor Swift will welcome seven members of Congress, including six Republicans, at her Washington D.C. performances next week. (PICTURES:‘Rolling Stone’ ranks pop’s top princesses)

According to the Sunlight Foundation’s Party Time blog, South Dakota Republican Senator John Thune, Alabama Republican Congressman Jo Bonner, New York Republican Congressman Michael Grimm, Georgia Republican Congressman Tom Price, Texas Republican Congresswoman Kay Granger and North Carolina Democratic Congresswoman Heath Shuler are scheduled to hold fundraisers during Swift’s first show in D.C. The 21-year-old country-pop singer’s Verizon Center concerts, to be held on Aug. 2 and 3, are sold out.

Georgia Republican Congressman Paul Broun is set to visit Swift’s second D.C. appearance. Last year, Mississippi Republican Congressman Gregg Harper, Tennessee Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, and Price raised funds at Swift’s Verizon Center event.

The Grammy Award-winning Pennsylvanian is not the first female pop star to have political fundraisers at one of her concerts. New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg hosted a fundraiser with Lady Gaga last year during the “Monster” singer’s show in the nation’s capital.
