Yes, that’s former Treasury Secretary and Washington elder-statesman Bob Rubin soaking wet after he fell into a pool, standing next to Treasurer Gina Raimondo at a Democratic National Convention party at the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, N.C. This photo has spread fast overnight.
HuffPo’s Ryan Grim reports the two were attending “a happy hour party” that began around 6:30 p.m. “and was attended by top White House officials and Wall Street bigwigs.” The pool is on the 18th floor of the Ritz.
Rubin and Raimondo were scheduled to take part in the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s “Fiscal Thursday” panel today. They’re both graduates of Yale Law School and members of the Council on Foreign Relations.
