That was a close one…
I am a part of "Cleantech & Green Business for Obama" - a group of green business leaders supporting Obamarama.
A fundraiser was planned and they needed a private home to host it. We were all set and I was sure the vetting process would be fine. Yes, we are Australians so by definition we are all convicts but my record is pretty clean.
Lo and behold, we have been nixayed. The rules state you have to be a permanent resident to host one of those shindigs. No immigrants allowed!
