In preparation for primary night—one week from today! get your ballots in the mail, people!!!—our news interns have been compiling a list of parties for us to attend.
So, of course we had intern Joseph Staten get in touch with former State Supreme Court Justice Richard Sanders, who in 2010 threw one of the most interesting primary night bashes the Stranger Election Control Board has ever seen.
The headline from our report on that 2010 event: "Justice Richard Sanders, Victorious, Shows Off a Walrus Penis." (One of the more memorable Justice Sanders quotes from that night: "I'm The Stranger's guy, really. You guys just don't know it. There's more to life than gay marriage. And I would hope that the gays would tell you that.")
Justice Sanders was defeated in the 2010 general, and now he's trying to get back on the court. He sent the following note when Joseph asked whether we could attend his primary night festivities this time around:
Thanks but no thanks. The Stranger is not invited.
