The Return of VITO!

by: DocJess

Wed Dec 10, 2008 at 10:00:00 AM EST

If you're a long-time reader of DCW, you know the continuing saga of Vito! Fossella. If you're new, you can catch up on the drinking, the arrest, and the illegitimate child here. As Matt reported last night, Vito IS going to jail. In between arrest and conviction, Vito! first insisted he would run for re-election, then after a lot of pressure, he decided against it. The new GOP candidate lasted 10 days, and then he died. Vito! tried unsuccessfully to get back on the ticket. 

If you think that going to jail would be the end, you don't know Vito!

This weekend, using $5,000 of leftover campaign funds, Vito! is holding a bagel brunch for up to 500 supporters. He's got more than $200,000 left in his coffers after the brunch, and is testing the waters to see if he can take on Mike McMahon in 2010 for the NY-13th. 

We'll see who shows up. Rumour has it Mike Bloomberg (who funded a lot of Vito's previous efforts) will be in attendance.
