Alec Baldwin May Run For Mayor Of NYC

Rep. Anothony Weiner's weiner pics may preclude him from campaigning for mayor of New York City, so Alec Baldwin is considering a run. A friend reports, "Alec said, ‘Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted ... The Democrats need a high-profile candidate, and Alec can fill that bill." His rep responded, "I wouldn't rule it out." Baldwin is no stranger to scandal, but so far his crotch has only been referenced in the beloved Schweddy Balls SNL sketch, not a young lady's Twitter account. Such a class act! [Hollywood Reporter]
Huma Abedin, Weiner's wife, is telling friends she's "saddened" by her husband's behavior, but remains "committed" to her marriage. [Radar]
