From the NY Post:
The fund-raising scandal surrounding Mayor de Blasio is so toxic that he hasn’t been able to sell out his birthday bash at a tiny venue, even with comedian Louis C.K. headlining.
City First Lady Chirlane McCray on Sunday — the mayor’s 55th birthday — sent out an e-mail blast urging supporters to snap up tickets to the Thursday-evening event at Brooklyn Bowl, a Williamsburg bowling alley and concert venue that holds up to 600 people.
“Remember to get your tickets now if you haven’t yet — news that Louis C.K. will be there has traveled fast and space is filling up,” McCray wrote.
The e-mail came a week and a half after the de Blasio campaign announced that the comic — who had no trouble selling out three shows at Madison Square Garden — would be introducing Hizzoner at the event to benefit his anticipated 2017 re-election bid.
Tickets cost $100 to $250, according to an invitation form on the ActBlue Web site for Democratic fund-raising efforts.
One Democratic activist said McCray’s e-mail pitch was “like the infomercial: ‘Hurry up while supplies last.’”
“I don’t know anyone who is going,” the source said.
I know someone!
