Fenty Machine Takes on NYC
Everybody knows by now about the friendship between Mayor Fenty and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Now, Bloomberg is paying off in more ways than just providing Fenty a road map for education reform and a school chancellor.
Bloomberg hosted a recent fundraiser for Fenty's 2010 re-election campaign, sources tell us, and it appears to have paid off big-time in the mayor's campaign war-chest. Fenty's first filiing with the D.C. Office of Campaign Finance includes a number of big name Manhattanites, including Jonathan Tisch, chairman of the Lowes Hotel group, billionaire Ronald Perelman, former Senator Alfonse D'Amato and Pittsburgh Steelers investor Stanley Druckenmiller.
In all, Fenty received more than $60,000 from people with New York addresses, though it is not certain that all of them were recruited by Bloomberg, who is not listed as a contributor.
