onslaught of emails about the sixth and final Dinner with Barack contest, Deputy Campaign Manager Julianna Smoot on Saturday sent supporters a scribbled seating chart for President Obama's upcoming party.
Smoot has plenty of experience with seating arrangements: She served for about a year as the President's second Social Secretary before joining the re-election effort from Chicago HQ.
"We're already figuring out the seating arrangements for the last Dinner with Barack of this campaign," Smoot wrote with a request for a $5 donation. "Two of these seats could be yours."
Smoot has gotten a bit casual with her seating charts, however: Check out this ultra-fancy seating chart she emailed to supporters for the 2011 'Dinner with Barack and Michelle' contest.
Three winners and their guests will join the President for the last supper, which will be held on a still-undisclosed date at an undisclosed location; the entry deadline is Sept 25th. Winners will pay taxes on the $1,600 assigned retail value of the prize package, which includes a one-night hotel stay and coach-class airfare. Winners must also pass background checks and agree to be used throughout all eternity in campaign promotions.
There's an alternate "free" entry page
for the dinner contest that's required by law, but no winner has gotten a seat at any of the President's dinners without dropping cash into his war chest. A campaign official admitted this week that the org doesn't actually care if *you* are one of the three winners--the President just wants your money.
"Seriously, what are you waiting for?" Smoot wrote.

Smoot's email had the subject line "Where you'll be seated."

But only if you enter.
