Fossella appeared at a conservative forum in Staten Island last night, after attending a congressional delegation dinner at Gracie Mansion with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. According to the Post, Fossella's appearance at the conservative gathering "stunned" those in attendance.
"[There was] stunned silence. The room was shocked," said one guest. "He kind of worked the tables for about 20 minutes and left. The buzz out here is he's running."
Fossella, who is married, has been stung recently that he fathered a child with a retired Air Force officer. The disclosure of the secret relationship came after Fossella was busted on a drunk-driving charge in Alexandria, Va.
Fossella has been rumored to be contemplating resignation or retirement, but his actions last night has some New York GOP insiders believing that he may run again.
