Eliot Spitzer’s ex-wife Silda is hosting a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Manhattan, and only women will be allowed to attend the $2,700-a-ticket event.

The two-hour long fundraiser, which Silda will host along with four other women, will allow those who go to chat with Clinton on June 1. All proceeds will benefit “Hillary for America,” Page Six reports.

Silda divorced her husband Eliot Spitzer in 2014. He was the former governor of New York who resigned after being linked to a prostitution ring in 2008. (RELATED: Chelsea Clinton Is Writing The Saddest Children’s Book Ever)

During a presidential primary debate in 2008, Clinton blundered her way through a question about Spitzer’s plan to provide illegal immigrants New York driver’s licenses. At the time she made it sound like she did support the measure, with Barack Obama calling her answer “confusing,” but she later clarified that she did not.

“As president, I will not support driver’s licenses for undocumented people and will press for comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of the issues around illegal immigration, including border security and fixing our broken system.”

She has flip-flopped her stance on the issue and now supports issuing licenses to undocumented immigrants. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Flip-Flops On Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants)
