“It is obscene that Secretary Clinton keeps going to big money people to fund her campaign,” Sanders said on CNN's "State of the Union."

For two seats at the head table with Clinton and the Clooneys at the April 15 fundraiser, a couple must contribute $353,400.

Another fundraiser held a day later at the Clooney mansion in Los Angeles will cost guests $33,400 a ticket.

“I have a lot of respect for George Clooney,” Sanders said. “He’s a great actor. I like him. But this is the point. This is the problem with American politics, is that big money is dominating our political system, and we are trying to move as far away from that as we can.”
