Dean Skelos, Alec Baldwin Engage in War of Words on Twitter

Two trade Twitter shots over Baldwin's support of Occupy Wall Street.

Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, R-Rockville Centre, and Alec Baldwin engaged in a war of words on Twitter recently after Skelos called out Baldwin for his support of Occupy Wall Street, according to published reports.

From Newsday:

"The liberal celebrity and the New York Legislature's top Republican traded barbs for a second day, competing Wednesday via the social networking site. Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) called Baldwin a "hypocrite" for supporting Occupy Wall Street protesters and "raging" against corporate profits, while doing commercials for a major credit card company.

"Baldwin called Skelos a "Republican tool" and a "professional" twister of facts, and challenged him to appear at a joint news conference -- with his tax returns in hand."

Baldwin should disgorge himself of any earnings from Financial Institutions and publish his Tax Returns. Hes one of the 1% he hates!

Alec Baldwin is a horrible actor and even worse aspiring politician, however, Dean and the Republican Party will be forcing me to vote Democrat from now on..... He can thank the Republican Parties and Cuomo's Anti-Union views.........
