Maitland Ward might as well be an unofficial member of Ben Savage‘s congressional campaign team … she’s coming out strong to support him, and bashing other ex-costars who aren’t doing the same.
We got Maitland in Beverly Hills, where she was rocking a “Savage For Congress” shirt, and our photog asked why Ben’s got her vote … and why other “Boy Meets World” stars aren’t banging the drum for him.
The former teen TV star-turned-porn star says Ben’s a good man who deeply cares about his community — he’s running for CA’s 30th district, which includes parts of Los Angeles and its northern suburbs — and she says she likes his forward-thinking.

Remember, Maitland’s been on Ben’s side since he filed back in January to begin his run for Congress. To her point about their other ‘BMW’ costars … Rider Strong says he’s not going to endorse Ben just because they starred on a TV show together as teenagers.
Rider made his feelings known on the podcast he hosts with other “Boy Meets World” stars Danielle Fishel and Will Friedle … and Maitland thinks they’re just bitter Ben didn’t want to cohost the pod, and they’re holding it against him.
