Lichter Gets Political About McCain

Entertainment attorney Linda Lichterlichter.jpg posted an alarming story on her Facebook blog site this week. It was quoting a woman who had been on vacation a resort where John McCain and his wife were relaxing for a week after his last presidential bid.

Now, it was more than eight years ago, but the alarming part is what the woman (and by default Lichter) had to say about McCain.

Believe it or not, it is related to his current Presidential bid.

Lichter, who represents half of the indie world in Hollywood, was concerned because Facebook readers and idle curiosity types were assuming that she wrote this piece maligning McCain. While Lichter is not claiming to be McCain’s biggest fan, she wants it clear that she simply posted the woman’s story.

Below is a copy of the woman’s declaration:

Hollywood Reporter Reports on Mouthpieces

The Hollywood Reporter held court, so to speak, with the 100 attorneys it had named for its Power Lawyers issue this morning at the Peninsula Hotel. Organizer and HP managing editor of features Matthew Belloni said the event went off without hitch this morning, though he didn’t bother to tell whether they were eating raw snails (as lawyers are wont to do) or just bagels and coffee.
Belloni did bother to talk about the key award-winner, Disney executive VP of business affairs Bernadine Brandes and why they chose her: “Because she has been behind most of the major movie deals that Disney has had, including Jerry Bruckheimer, Robert Zemeckis and Tim Burton.”
Most of Hollywood’s legal power elite made it out of bed for an 8:30 a.m. start, including Tom Hansen, Linda Lichter, Skip Brittenham, Melanie Cook, Cliff Gilbert-Lurie, Alan Hergott, Harold Brown, Jay Cooper and Patti Felker, among others.
Belloni conceded that one of Hollywood’s most powerful attorneys was a no-show. Jake Bloom had no interest. “He never shows up for things like this and if he does, he doesn’t say anything,” he moaned.
