Rep. Anthony Weiner’s wife may not have stood by her man at his press conference on Monday, but actor Matt Damon is sticking by the congressman.
Damon was scheduled to hold a fundraiser for the now scandal-tarred rep on June 20 at the Almond Restaurant in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. According to New York magazine, he has decided to postpone it rather than cancel it.
“It’s going to be postponed now because of all this,” Damon told the mag at the Made in NY Awards on Monday night. “Look, I really support his politics …Anybody who fights for the working class and the middle class, I’ll help in any way I can,” continued Damon.
