(Newser) – Matt Damon has decided that now isn't a great time to hold a fundraiser for Anthony Weiner. Damon was scheduled to host a fete for the congressman later this month with prices ranging up to $10,000 a head. The actor says the party is now on ice, although he's still standing by Weiner, reports the New York Daily News. "Look, I really support his politics," he tells New York magazine. "Anybody who fights for the working class and the middle class, I’ll help in any way I can."
