    Video: Spitzer Wears Stoner Formalwear to Michael J. Fox’s Event The Michael J. Fox Foundation hosted its annual fund-raising gala over the weekend, and our Jada Yuan was there — with a camera. The night’s theme was “A Groovy Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s,” though some of the participants opted not to dress the part. Governor Eliot Spitzer blamed decorum and said a spotted tie was as groovy as he could get. Whatever you say, your Excellency. You dress like you support medical marijuana. Watch the video for more wardrobe explanations from Donny Deutsche, Gavin DeGraw, and others. Party Lines: Michael J. Fox Foundation

This time, it looks even more awkward. As the L.A. Times reported late last week, the candidate’s fund-raising swing through the Chinese community of New York resulted in $500 to $2,300 donations from people identified as “dishwashers, waiters and street stall hawkers.” Of the 150 donors on paper, 50 couldn’t be located, and at least one openly says he hasn’t contributed to the campaign. An April fund-raiser in a poor neighborhood fetched $380,000.
