Last night, the telecom industry hosted a fundraiser for Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the night before he presided over a hearing on data privacy.
According to the invitation for Tuesday’s fundraiser, which will be supporting a group backing Wicker’s reelection called RFW PAC, it costs $1,500 to attend the event as a guest, $2,500 to attend as a sponsor and $5,000 to co-host.
The event is being hosted by the political action committees for AT&T and the trade group USTelecom.
A spokesperson for Wicker did not immediately respond when contacted for a comment.
