Burgeoning politico Alec Baldwin showed up at an "Occupy Wall Street" protest Tuesday.
The "30 Rock" star advocated for tighter bank regulations. Arriving around midnight, he tweeted at 1:37, "My thanks 2 Aaron from Brooklyn and Sean from Winnipeg for this evening's OWS tutorial. My first. A lot of dedicated people at #ZuccottiPark."
Baldwin was also greeted by detractors who cited his work as a spokesperson for Capital One Bank.
He tweeted on the issue, as well. "I donated all of my fee from Capital One 2 arts charities. They have been gr8 partners in my support of the arts." The star then followed that defense of banks' existence, saying, "We need a healthy banking system in this country. We need strong capital markets. What is missing are regulations with teeth."
