A protestor wishing only to be identified as "Slumbering Pierrot," used a purloined DSCC ticket to attend a fundraiser for Bob Torricelli at the upscale restaurant Spago on Tuesday night.
"It was easy to get in," said Pierrot, whose disguise included borrowed shoes, a suit, and a mustache shaved to resemble Hitler's. "I think I was the only person who didn't know anyone else." Pierrot ate and drank from the free buffet. "I may have looked sort of strange...I hadn't eaten for a while."
Eventually, Pierrot began dropping stinkbombs he had obtained at a Beverly Hills toy store. "I guess people weren't expecting stinkbombs," he laughed. "The restaurant was large enough so that people didn't have to leave. When they would smell it, they just moved to another area."
His only regret was that he did not bring enough of the sulphurous devices. "If I had more, I could have flushed the place out. As it was, people would either move or pretend it wasn't that bad. But the smell was horrible."
