(Newser) – Want the chance to grab a bite with Julian Assange? Get in line, and bring lots of cash. WikiLeaks is offering eight people the chance to dine with its founder as a fundraiser for its secret-spilling work. Bids started Monday at about $570 a head but jumped up to $800 today. Bidding will close on Monday. Guests will dine July 2 at "one of London's finest restaurants" with Assange and Slovenian Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek. Assange is on bail in Britain as he fights extradition to Sweden on allegations of sexual misconduct against two women.
