Description

By EMILY TSAO / The Dallas Morning News A teen whose father denied him college tuition because he would not become a Republican now is raising funds for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Teddy Gambordella, 19, who launched a Web site in 2006 to raise money for college, has tweaked it not only to raise funds for his own education but also to generate up to $125,000 for the Clinton campaign. Mr. Gambordella, a freshman at Brookhaven Community College in Dallas, said splitting the funds will allow his fans to invest in him and the presidential candidate. “Half of it would be for the better of the country now and half of it would be for the better of the country’s future,” he said. As a Highland Park High School junior, Mr. Gambordella started a Web site – onemillionreasonswhy.com – in which people could buy pixel space as advertising on the site and their money would support him through college.
