Markey criticized over fund-raiser with Spitzer

The state Republican Party called on US Representative Edward J. Markey Tuesday to cancel a fund-raiser next month for his Senate campaign cohosted by former New York governor Eliot Spitzer.

The invitation, obtained by Politico, lists Spitzer and his wife among six couples and one individual cohosting the March 13 event. It is being held in the Washington home of Emily Spitzer, the former governor’s sister, according to Politico, and her husband. Guests are asked to donate $500 to $5,000.
