From the New York Slimes:
The party will go on — and the mayor will be in the house.
Mayor Bloomberg said he planned to attend a fund-raiser for Representative Charles B. Rangel on Wednesday night. He will join a list of attendees that has dwindled as the congressman faces charges that he violated ethics rules.
The word from the Stoop is that Bloomberg originally decided not to attend the Rangel celebration because he was troubled by Rangel's ethics violations. But Rangel's staff tricked Bloomberg into attending by telling the Mayor that the party would be held at a mosque-so expect Bloomy to be the first one to arrive.
