Pol Position caught wind of a fundraiser that the Queens borough president is having on June 29 in Long Island City, hosted by Congressman Joseph Crowley and Councilman Daniel Dromm. Or rather, we caught as much wind of it as we could, because we really can't tell you much more than that.
Tickets for the event start at $500 a person and go up to $3,850, and once you have signed your check – and only then! - will the location of this super top-secret gathering of the greatest political minds in the borough be revealed to you, upon which we assume you will be forced to take an oath promising death - or at the very least a temporary banishment from the borough's remaining Democratic Clubs - should you even hint to a significant other, squash partner or financial advisor the secret locale.
We here at Pol Position consider ourselves sleuths of the utmost amateurish kind, however, and we no doubt believe we can crack this case by the 6/29 deadline. Our investigation currently centers on a work of art at Socrates Sculpture Park that when moved just right reveals the door to a secret lair underneath the East River, a manhole near the Citi Building that always has this peculiar glow emanating from it, or just that fancy-schmancy place the Metropolitan Building where everybody holds crap like this.
Stay tuned goslings!
