Paid $2,490 for a plate at the 1991 Republican Senators Inner Circle luncheon.
"I'm not a registered Republican. I'm not even registered to vote. I was just curious, so I went to check it out after they sent me an invitation to the lunch. Some of my friends are saying to me, 'Oh, so you're a Republican now?' But how could I be a Republican when I have a song called 'Fuck Tha Police'? I was surprised when I got the invitation. I guess they sent it to me because I contributed to the City of Hope [medical center]. But at the luncheon -- I wore a black leather suit -- everybody looked at me funny, like, 'What's he doing here?'"
