An invite to the Feb. 25 concert at Washington’s Verizon Center, posted on the Sunlight Foundation’s site,, says individual donors can pay $3,000 for a pair of tickets to the “Born This Way" singer’s show and a VIP reception with Harkin. The cost jumps to $3,500 for political action committees.

Harkin, 73, isn’t the first lawmaker to hop aboard the Lady Gaga fundraising bandwagon. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) hosted a private room at one of the entertainer’s shows in 2010.
