    Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who resigned after prostitution scandal, to jump into race

    Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who resigned after prostitution*scandal, to jump into race for city controller* - NY Daily News

    ALBANY — City politics has never been so titillating.

    Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer stunned the political establishment Sunday night by announcing he is running for city controller — joining mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner as the latest disgraced politician looking for a comeback.

    In an odd twist, the ex-governor — who resigned in 2008 amid a high-priced call girl scandal — will be competing against Kristin Davis, the ex-madam who says she supplied him with hookers and who is running on the Libertarian line.

    “I love public service,” Spitzer told the Daily News. “I believe in it, and hope I will be given a second chance.

    “After being out of office for five years, thinking deeply, reflecting on what I was able to do when I was in government ... I’m going to try and seek the controller’s office and ask the public to consider me,” Spitzer said.

    Spitzer, 54, is creating a committee that will begin circulating nominating petitions Monday in the effort to collect the requisite 3,750 signatures to get on the ballot by Thursday’s deadline. The son of a wealthy real estate developer, Spitzer said he won’t opt into the city’s public campaign finance system.
    The bolded part is what makes this story especially cheerful. Is this a great country or what?

    Only in New York. LOL

    I watched the movie "Idiocracy" years ago. Seemed ridiculously over-the-top at the time. Now...not so much.

    I did feel sorry for Weiner's wife. But when I consider her patron, who is among the most shamelessly ambitious politicians of our lifetimes, I think Huma Abedin has decided to keep her eye on the real prize.

    Huma DID have a role model, right?

    Moderator: Mrs. Kristin, why do you think Mr. Spitzer shouldn't be controller?

    Kristin: Well, he still owes me $300.00.

    Yeah, only in NY except for the reality that he probably realized that he had a chance after the SC senate election a few weeks ago where a republican guilty of flying to argentinia on the taxpayers of his state to meet with his mistress actually made it into congress. But it is only in NY of course. I guess if he doesn't get on the ballot we can always say only in SC. Hopefully the dems can find someone better to run.
