Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

Radio Silence on

SHEEN-GATE

1/13/2013 7:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

011313_villaraigosa_launchL.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa might have a future in boxing -- because he bobbed and weaved like a real pro Sunday morning as soon as a photog even mentioned the name Charlie Sheen.

Villaraigosa was in D.C. leaving an interview with "Face the Nation" when he was asked to clarify what really went down in Mexico with the "Anger Management" star. 

Villaraigosa's version: He and Charlie met for a quick three-minute chat, snapped a photo together and NOTHING more.

Charlie's version: The mayor's straight-up lying ... the two of them spent hours partying and boozing with hot chicks in his hotel room -- and that's where they snapped the infamous Twitter pic (below).

In the video, Villaraigosa clearly doesn't want to answer the question. But what's interesting is what he doesn't say ... specifically, he NEVER once denies the actor's claims.

IMO he should come clean before people start speculating that a donkey was also involved.

The mayor was probably there to traffic more illegals to America to vote democrat while Charlie was probably there to use them all as drug mules to get Charlie's drugs across the border

I live in a suburb of LA and pretty sure he is termed out, be interesting to see who runs next time. He was in a scandal shortly after being elected about cheating with either a DJ or reporter, think it was a reporter.

Uh... the only one in this picture who looks f*cked up is Charlie. Sorry, but I'm not really buying Sheen's story this time.

Leave the greaseball alone. In a few short months he will be gone and given some BS appointment in DC where he will be in charge of an office full of numbnuts doing nothing. Now that he has basically bankrupted Los Angeles.

He acts like he is at a party and trying to step off to mingle with someone else. Maybe that is what he is good at, hanging at parties and posing for photos. People don't seem to think he is doing a good job as mayor. I don't know if he was another lesser of two evils choice, but it seems people who vote for the superficial get leaders who don't care about them.

Not much that is more lame than putting "gate" on a word to imply that there is a scandal.
