Weiner enlists ‘Wrestler’ to raise funds


If you’re in New York, looking to catch an Oscar-nominated flick before Sunday’s awards and support Anthony Weiner for NYC mayor, tonight is your night. The congressman, who just yesterday helped get an Israeli tennis player an entry visa into Dubai, is having a fundraiser for his mayoral campaign featuring a screening of "The Wrestler," followed by a question and answer session with Jewish director Darren Aronofsky. The event, which includes a wine reception, starts at 6:30 p.m. Here’s more info:
