ATLANTIC CITY - It was chest-thumping heaven for Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3), a potential successor to Gov. Chris Christie. whose party last night backed up pedestrian traffic down the escalator and 100 deep at One Atlantic.
The event was a dessert party hosted by Hoboken Councilwoman Beth Mason who shocked guests by coming dressed as a dessert.
The Councilwoman's dessert-themed garb was the talk of the event.
Mason wore 'modesty' sprinkles on her chest, stood in a giant motorized parfait cup engineered to move on hidden wheels and wore a whipped cream chapeau topped by a huge Maraschino cherry.
Councilwoman Mason had several issues with her attire through-out the evening.
The sprinkles proved to be problematic when icing adhering them to the sheer panel fabric began to run. One Atlantic was asked to lower the thermostat down to 40 degrees to stop the sprinkle-migration and unscheduled nudie-show.
Mason's dessert-themed garb also attracted flies. At least a dozen large flies were observed laying eggs in Mason's sugary chapeau, and by the end of the evening, her head was covered with maggots.
None of this frightened away her new political friends who don't care that this dessert is nutty through and through.
Last night's dessert party was the Councilman's her biggest foray to-date into New Jersey state politics. She has thrown her support behind South Jersey's Steve Sweeney, and has already begun a rumor campaign in local media to tarnish Fulop's right-hand man Tom Bertoli. Bertoli was just named #35 in PolickerNJ's 2013 Power List.
Last June, the Councilwoman publicly announced her run for Senator Frank Lautenberg's seat before his respirator was unplugged. Days later, Mason announced she had declined the pleadings of the many Democratic Party big-wigs who had been calling her, begging and pleading for her to run.
That's what she said.

Her guests will not care, as long as she parks the Brinks Truck outside.
