Don't Mess With Aravosis

You just don't want to be on the wrong side of John when he's on a mission:
Guess who's coming to dinner?
Pam Spaulding has published an email detailing just who's coming to the DNC's $1,000 (and up) a head gay fundraising dinner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC with VP Biden next week. I suspect those folks are going to be under a lot of pressure to pull out (Andy Towle and David Mixner have already said they're not attending). Pam is asking folks to contact our gay elected leadership in Congress, Barney Frank, Tammy Baldwin and Jared Polis, and ask them why they're still hosting this event. The email includes the following, in bold:
"Did I mention that the Mandarin Oriental has a 10,400-square-foot spa?"
Did I mention that the attendees are going to need a 10,400 sq ft spa and a plane ticket out of the country after our community gets a hold of them.
John's asking folks to call Barney Frank, Tammy Baldwin, and Jarid Polis to encourage them to drop-out of the Biden fundraiser. Go help.
