Alec Baldwin Bails on Weiner's Mayoral Bid, Cites Pol's Craving for 'Risky Behavior'
Leave it to someone who has embarrassed himself publicly a time or three to know when a politician has had enough.
For Alec Baldwin, a second round of sexting is enough proof that mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner should take a knee. Baldwin tells the New York City dweller to quit the race in a new op-ed at The Huffington Post, saying Weiner is addicted to "risky behavior."
It would be one thing if a man had an affair, doing what comes naturally with a partner other than his wife. It's another thing to text compromising photos of yourself and thus hand someone a loaded gun. However, it is, without doubt, entirely something else, again, to ultimately resign one's seat in the U.S. Congress, both embarrass and disappoint yourself, your family and your constituents and then repeat that very same behavior right at a time when your poll numbers are about to climb.
Baldwin, who toyed with the idea of running for Mayor of New York City himself, thinks Bill de Blasio is the best choice to lead New York City at this point in the race.
