Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has always bridged the fine line between his mayoral duties and reaching out to the entertainment industry that largely defines the City of Angels. Since assuming office in 2005, Mayor Villaraigosa has hung out with Paris Hilton at a Grammy Party, raised eyebrows for accepting tickets to Lakers games in coveted courtside seats, attended many Oscar parties and dated a red carpet ready former Miss USA.
But on Friday night, ?Hizzoner? attended a party in Baja California, Mexico with actor Charlie Sheen. The actor tweeted a picture of him and the Los Angeles Mayor, ?From Boyle Heights 2 Mayor of LA..! @hotelelganzo?2 party w/SHEEN at SheenZ..! Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to party!?
The photo was later deleted from Sheen?s twitter feed.
Sheen, who has had a very public breakdown after leaving the show Two and a Half Men, may not be good for the Mayor?s image as Villaraigosa ponders his next steps after completing his term in 2013. It has been rumored that Villaraigosa may be under consideration for a cabinet position in the Obama administration because of his role on the campaign trail and as Chair of the Democratic Convention in Charlotte back in September.
This photo begs the question: is extracurricular partying with Charlie Sheen becoming of a soon to be 60 year old, would be cabinet secretary?
