Plans are continuing for a birthday fundraiser for Charles Rangel on August 11th, and attendance might hinge on the outcome of a House ethics hearing this week:

Another issue for many of New York’s top officeholders: a scheduled Aug. 11 campaign fundraiser for Rangel at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, hosted by outgoing Gov. David Paterson and chaired by most of the state’s Democratic party elite, including Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic candidate for governor, and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a Republican-turned-independent, was listed as a co-host as well.

The only thing more challenging than trying to figure out who the most crooked person in the room is will be to get Bloomberg to stop measuring the salt content in the hor dourves.

Rangel has to run for re-election and win in order to keep raising campaign cash to pay his legal bills. So no matter what happens Charlie can be fairly certain his lawyers will be voting for him.

Rangel’s campaign has released a video promoting this year’s fundraiser using some footage from last year’s party just to remind everybody that they like him and still do, dammit:

After the party it’s off to one of Charlie’s rent-stabilized apartments for cocktails and conversation.
