FutureOfCapitalism.com has obtained a copy of an invitation to one of the campaign fundraisers that Governor Perry is having in New York City later this month. The event is Tuesday afternoon, September 20, the ticket is $2,500 a person, the location is a Fifth Avenue apartment whose address I am not disclosing, and the hosts are Giovanna Cugnasca, Elizabeth and Mallory Factor, Ruth King, Hadassah Loeb, Adele and David Malpass, and Mitzi Purdue. Ms. King is active in the group Americans for a Safe Israel. Mr. Malpass is a Reagan-era Treasury official who was chief economist of Bear Stearns, ran in 2010 for Senate as a Republican in New York and now runs Encima Global. Mr. Factor is a pro-growth political activist and merchant banker whose move to South Carolina in 2006 was the subject of a front-page news article in the New York Sun.
The invitation I got came pre-filled with a "bundler tracking code" to make it easier for the campaign to credit fund-raisers.
