Paul Strauss, the so-called shadow senator, joined forces last week with celebrities to make their voices heard for D.C. statehood.

The Creative Coalition and Strauss hosted the “Voices of Impact” dinner in West Hollywood to press the case that the nation’s capital deserves full federal representation.

The guest list included Jeremy Piven, Tim Daly, Omar Epps, Danielle Panabaker, Kate Walsh and many others. Strauss was on hand to educate the Hollywood stars on the push for D.C. statehood.
