A Goodbye Fundraiser For Del Valle

Delvalle2006A reader passed along this curious invitation:

"Please join Senate President Emil Jones, Jr for a Fundraiser in honor of Senator Miguel del Valle  as he says goodbye to Springfield after 20 years of sterling service in the General Assembly. . . and to welcome him home to Chicago as he embarks on his next challenge as our new City Clerk of Chicago."

Fundraising for what, and why so brazen on the heels of the Lasky scandal?

The event, which is being held on Monday at 5:30PM at the Capital Steakhouse in Springfield, invites guests to participate in the host committee and lists dollar amounts for various levels of recognition, along with the following admonition:  "Citizens for Miguel del Valle does not accept contributions from any individual or entity doing business with the Office of the City Clerk of Chicago."  To RSVP, call Jen at 312-332-6600 ext. 221
