Anyway, Damon had planned to host a fundraiser later this month for the disgraced Weiner, but those plans are now on hold.
"It’s going to be postponed now because of all this," Damon told us at the Made in NY Awards at Gracie Mansion last night. But Damon hasn't given up on Weiner just yet. "Look, I really support his politics," he told us. "Anybody who fights for the working class and the middle class, I’ll help in any way I can."Oddly enough, Weiner's also tight with Ben Affleck. Whodathunkit?
What an amazing coincidence!
When noted Democratic actor Ben Affleck wanted to research the role of a crooked congressman a couple of years ago, he knew right where to go: Rep. Anthony Weiner, a New York Democrat in the House.
This was in 2008, mind you.
And Affleck was preparing to play the role of Stephen Collins in "State of Play."
