Armand Assante helping Bilirakis raise money
When you think of U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis,R-Palm Harbor, what comes to mind first is Hollywood hunk. So why should we be surprised that actor Armand Assante will be the special guest Saturday at a $500-per-person fundraising reception for Bilirakis in Clearwater?
We hear Bilirakis has never actually met Assante, who is the special guest of the event's hosts, Dr. and Mrs. Russell Patterson.
