Spitzer’s Fund-Raiser for Vance Canceled

A source on Cy Vance’s campaign emails to say that their fund-raiser tomorrow with Eliot Spitzer has been canceled.

The August 5 fund-raiser was first reported in Page Six last week and defended by Vance’s campaign, whose spokesperson said at the time Spitzer and Vance are friends from their days working in the Manhattan DA’s office and that “both are substantial lawyers who know about and care about the future of the DA’s office.”

UPDATE: A Vance campaign spokesman emailed to say, “The event was canceled earlier this week. Cy decided that what was supposed to be a small get-together had grown into something that was beginning to overshadow the important issues in this race, like community-based justice and much-needed court reform.”
