Packed EJ Gig Could Spell Trouble For Trump

Thursday 23 March 2006 @ 16:55 - GMT

Palm Beach director Veronica Close has confirmed that Donald Trump could face charges if reports about Elton's Saturday night fund-raiser are true.

Fire Chief Ed Moran said his department stopped organisers from adding two rows of seating just prior to the 90-minute show, while others claim as many as 900 attended--well over the Mar-a-Lago ballroom's capacity of 700.

Donald's staff reportedly packed more people in to maximize revenues because the headliner requested a million dollars for his foundation as well as an extra $250,000 for his band.

Meanwhile, the real estate mogul is busy in New York, where his wife gave birth to their first child Monday morning.
