Jimmy McMillan: Anthony Weiner For NYC Mayor

Posted: Updated:

Jimmy McMillan, of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party, announced his endorsement of Anthony Weiner in the Democratic primaries for New York City mayor on Thursday.

The support is somewhat surprising, considering McMillan took aim at the former congressman along with Eliot Spitzer, for taking on politics as "a rich boy's game."

"You ask people to vote for you who need you to do something for them and then you've got to resign for personal reasons?" McMillan said. "You want to come back like it's a big joke."

McMillan is a mayoral candidate himself and announced his bid with an unforgettable music video.
