13. Steven Spielberg
Steven Spielberg, director and co-founder of DreamWorks, donated $1 million to Priorities USA Action, a super-PAC that supported Hillary Clinton. He also donated $2,700 directly to Hillary Clinton herself.
Since the donation limit per candidate, per election is $2,700, Spielberg went out of his way to circumvent the system, like many other donors, through a Political Action Committee, also known as PAC.
Spielberg has donated approximately $800,000 to individual Democratic campaigns over the years and millions more to various democratic Political Action Committees.
Spielberg was a close friend to Bill Clinton, working with the former President on the USA Millenium celebration film, The American Journey, an eighteen-minute film that was presented at America’s Millenium Gala on December 31st, 1999.
In his career, Spielberg is famously known for E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Saving Private Ryan, to name a few.
