Not only was I unable to get in to the reception for Sen. Rick Santorum held at the New York Historical Society yesterday, but the staff manning the desk refused even to say who was sponsoring the reception. I already knew that it was Dominion Resources, a natural gas company that's donated heavily to Santorum, because Congressional Quarterly had IDed them in their daily schedule of events. But the attempt to keep such elementary information under wraps is a bit of an eyebrow-raiser. I can only assume that the secrecy was meant to protect participants in the giant Crisco party raging within. Anyway, I was sad to see that the reception was being held now, and not back in June, when the NYHS was celebrating "Stonewall: The Riots that Sparked the Gay Revolution" [DOC]
