ICYMI: screen starlet, and born-and-bred Manhattanite, Scarlet Johansson hosted a fundraiser for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's 2013 mayoral bid earlier this week. A lot of the press focused focused on the event like it was a peculiarity, but as we've written about before, the Stringer 2013 team is proving highly adapt at capturing headlines and taking up air in the 2013 mayoral room.
"It's always inspiring to see voters get behind the lesser known, less trendy candidate, but I have to say, after tonight's success, that won't be the case any longer," said Johansson, standing next to Stringer at a venue better known for the Olsen twins and a tough door.
