Potential Manhattan D.A. Candidate Raises Money

Here’s the invitation to Monday’s fund-raiser for possible Manhattan District Attorney candidate Cyrus Vance, Jr.

The event, which was reported by Crain’s Insider, is being organized by Linda Fairstein, a former aide to the current Manhattan D.A., Robert Morgenthau.

Vance has said he is not trying to unseat Morgenthau, and will only run if the position is vacated; Morgenthau has said he plans to seek reelection when his current term expires in 2009.

Vance is working with Cindy Darrison, who was a key fund-raiser for Eliot Spitzer and is now helping David Paterson. Potential Manhattan D.A. Candidate Raises Money
