Alec Baldwin Squares Off Against Dean Skelos In Twitter War

alecbaldwin Alec Baldwin Squares Off Against Dean Skelos In Twitter WarIn a Hollywood–meets Albany–meets social media story, actor (and possible future mayoral candidate) Alec Baldwin has engaged in a war of words with Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos.

The battle began when Mr, Skelos, speaking on the Capital Press Room, made an argument against the extension of the so-called “millionaire’s tax,” saying “We can’t be influenced by the Alec Baldwins of the world,” and noting that the actor just bought an $11 million Tribeca condo.

Taking to Twitter, Baldwin responded:

Alec Baldwin
and

If @AlecBaldwin thinks I’m wrong, he must think Gov Cuomo is too since he agrees with me u can’t raise taxes on businesses, working people.
