J. K. Rowling
Rowling is firmly Liberal in her politics, and despite being from the UK, has supported both Hilary Clinton and Obama, stating "I want a Democrat in the White House. And it seems a pity that Clinton and Obama are rivals because both are extraordinary."  Her books were written while she was a divorced single mother, living on welfare benefits provided by the government, while she worked the minimum necessary to maintain her benefits.  Rowling also worked for the Pro-Choice, Pro-Gay, Anti-Israel Human "Rights" organization Amnesty International.
