Last night, Mayor Bloomberg held a fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) and it seems like Reid was very spirited, because he told the crowd, "We in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member." Politico reports, "The comment prompted Gillibrand"—who has lost weight lately—"to turn red, according to the sources, and created a bit of stir among the small crowd there. 'It was pretty shocking when he said it,' said one source familiar with the remark and the reaction." Reid's spokesman said, "What can I say, she made The Hilll's 'Most Beautiful list. Of course he also went on to praise her skill and tenacity and described her as an effective member of the New York delegation as well."
