Canceled “Party Favors”

Wednesday evening

Reps for Nicole Sexton, the former director of finance for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, say that a Minneapolis book signing of her fictional tell-all “Party Favors” was canceled under pressure from top GOP officials.

The tome, which reads like a fund-raiser’s version of “The Devil Wears Prada,” is a critical account of party fund-raising, including the practice among money gatherers to take a percentage off the top of each contribution, unsavory exchanges between lobbyists and lawmakers and, of course, a few sexual shenanigans in conflict with the party’s pitch for traditional values.

“It’s just blatant censorship, at the end of the day,” says Sexton’s agent, Maura Teitelbaum.

Teitelbaum did not say who exactly exerted pressure, but Sexton still has political ties via the org for which she now works, Bono’s ONE Campaign.
