Vince Fumo Throwing Himself a Giant Party

Ah, you gotta love Philly. A little more than a month since returning home from a four year stint in a federal prison in Kentucky, Vince Fumo is hitting the social circuit. Or rather, he’s hosting it.

Former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo has invited many of his former staff members to his home for what is described as a social gathering on Sunday, Sept. 22. Invitations by telephone and e-mail have been extended to former Fumo aides in his Philadelphia and Harrisburg offices, recipients confirmed Thursday.

And many of those aides still work in state politics–four of them in the office State Sen. Larry Farnese, who replaced Fumo. That’s the angle this morning’s Inquirer story focused on. But it’s hard to get too worked up about that, considering what their former boss got in trouble for. When it comes to scandaling us over something Fumo-related, the bar has been set pretty high.
