Vito Fossella made a brief appearance last night at the Richmond County Conservative Party’s fund-raiser on Staten Island, the most clear signal to date that he’s interested in seeking re-election after being arrested for D.U.I. and admitting to fathering a child out of wedlock.
Since his arrest earlier this month, Fossella and his crisis communication consultant have said Fossella is focusing on his family, not politics.
No reporters were at the event, but word of Fossella’s appearance quickly got out after his arrival.
