Politics: Breakfast with Eliot Spitzer and the Reverend Ruben Diaz, Sr.

Over on the New York Sun's Fifty First State blog, Azi Paybarah reports that later this morning New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer will be attending the annual Hispanic Ministers Banquet Award Celebration. Funny thing: The whole shin dig is led by non other than the Reverend Ruben Diaz, Sr. on whom we've had much to write about recently (including the fact that Spitzer seems to have let the Reverend off rather easily for questions that have drawn some recent attention from the Albany Times-Union [To be fair (?) Azi also reports that Spitzer's challenger for the Democratic spot in the next gubernatorial election, Tom Suozzi, will also be there].

UPDATE: On April 23rd, 2006, Newsday reported that Eliot Spitzer "had not planned to attend Saturday's event" and did not. But they do report on some juicy bits about Tom Suozzi and what he said at the event. Azi says that Spitzer did not attend the event due to "a scheduling conflict."
