Correction: An earlier version of this story erred in stating that eight Congress members at the GOP fundraiser in Florida serve on the House Financial Services Committee. CBS News was correct in reporting the number as nine. CJR overlooked Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama, committee chair. CJR regrets the error.
