There will be no party at the Fumo mansion after all.
Former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo has canceled a Sunday get-together for former staff members at his place in Philadelphia's Spring Garden section. He's been serving out the remainder of his federal prison sentence under house arrest in the 33-room house.
Sources who had been invited to the affair said they were told that federal prison officials weighed in against the event, concerned about the appearance that Fumo was throwing a celebration.
Fumo, 70, a powerful Democratic political figure for more than 30 years, was released last month from a federal prison in Ashland, Ky., where he spent four years after his 2009 conviction for defrauding the Senate and two nonprofit organizations.
