This has to be the most tidbit gleamed from a political fundraiser in a while, but it turns out the Sugar Hill Gang — yes, the legendary Sugar Hill Gang of “Rapper’s Delight” fame (shown in the video above) — performed (gratis) at a fundraiser for congressional candidate Adam Hasner.  The event was held at the offices of the C2 Group in Washington D.C.

Hasner spokesman Brad Herold confirms that the rap group was most certainly in attendance as theyare repped by a supporter of Hasner’s.

Adam Hasner + The Sugar Hill Gang has to be one of the most interesting mash-ups in political fundraising lore.

Update: Herold sends along this great picture of Hasner with the Sugar Hill Gang:
