Matt Damon Hasn’t Given Up on Anthony Weiner


As originally reported by the Daily News, actor and progressive activist Matt Damon was scheduled to host a fund-raiser for Congressman Anthony Weiner on June 20 at Almond Restaurant, with tickets ranging from $250 to $10,000 a pop. Then yesterday happened. “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.”
