Developer Durst Backs Out of Cocktail Party

DENVERLooks like the Durst Organization will wait another day to pour cocktails for New York politicians.

The real estate development firm just sent out an email saying it will no longer co-host an event at a Denver pub this afternoon with political consulting firm Global Strategy Group.

The culprit? Lobbying laws.

"We are not sponsoring the party to remove the possibility of conflict with the New York State Lobbying Laws," Durst spokesman Jordan Barowitz wrote.

The party’s still on, though, hosted in full by Global Strategy Group.
