MSNBC’s Al Sharpton will host a meeting Saturday in New York City with former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who is running for mayor. Sharpton explained his reason for meeting with Weiner to the New York Daily News:

“People understand that we all fall, but can we get up? At the same time, you can give people a second chance, but you don’t have to necessarily support him.”

Sharpton said Weiner called him the day he began his campaign.

Weiner “said he and I have always had a cordial relationship even if we didn’t always agree and said he would like to meet with me,” said Sharpton.
