Embattled, sexting scandal-ridden New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has at long last secured an endorsement — but it may not be the stamp of approval he needs.
The New York Post reported the endorsement is from Jimmy McMillan, 66, a fellow mayoral hopeful who heads up The Rent is Too Damn High Party.
But for Mr. Weiner, Mr. McMillan has cast aside his competitive spirit and come out with a full embrace of the Democratic candidate. On Twitter, Mr. McMillan is pictured hugging Mr. Weiner, above the message: "Jimmy McMillan officially endorses Anthony Weiner."
Mr. McMillan explained his endorsement to Politicker.
"We are all freaky," he said. "He just exposed his freaky-ism in the wrong way."
