Alec Baldwin in the race for mayor of New York?

If the Democrats now find themselves lacking a candidate for mayor of New York, the fault lies with Anthony Weiner who has created a scandal by admitting he had lied in denying that he sent intimate images to a student on Twitter.

This could be the reason that pushed Alec Baldwin to consider entering politics and candidate for the elections of 2013 as a Democrat, succeeding the city’s current mayor, Michael Bloomberg.

Earlier this week, the 30 Rock star wrote on Twitter that it’s still “a long way till November of 2013” and posted a link to the song “New York, New York.”

Baldwin’s rep confirmed that his candidacy was a possibility.
