Bloomberg, Reid and Schumer

Ira Stoll gets his hands on the invite for Michael Bloomberg's September 20 fund-raiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, whose guest list includes Chuck Schumer.

Stoll suggests "maybe it's just transactional, with the mayor calculating Mr. Reid will probably win and be in a position to direct federal funds to New York City."
