The Eliot Spitzer scandal is less than a week old, but that was enough time for the writers of Saturday night's annual Inner Circle Dinner to find ways to poke fun at the outgoing governor.
Spitzer was the butt of several jokes during the charity event, where the city's political reporters roast the mayor and other lawmakers.
One Spitzer spoof reworked the song "Love Potion Number 9" as "Love Client Number 9" -- referring to the code name given to Spitzer in court papers.
During the mayor's rebuttal to the press corps' production of "Young Mikenstein," Bloomberg poked fun at the way he came up with his PlanYC environmental initiative. Some of the show's biggest applause came when Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning shared the stage with the mayor.
Bloomberg also made fun of his presidential ambitions and the failed White House bid of former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
