Lest we forget, he’s the former governor of New York who made his career by specializing in not just the prosecution, but the ruin, of other men, and now he wants back:
YOU CAN’T KEEP A BAD MAN DOWN
SPITZER IS EYEING A COMEBACK (in caps because the headline is from the NY Post)
Disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been privately talking with friends about a possible comeback, and is considering a run for statewide office next year, several sources told The Post.
Less than 18 months after he left Albany in a prostitution scandal, Spitzer has held informal discussions in recent weeks about the possibility of making a bid for state comptroller or the US Senate seat currently held by Kirsten Gillibrand, sources said.
The hooker-happy Democrat has also discussed his own halfway-decent poll numbers in recent surveys, which have shown him more popular than Gov. Paterson, whose own numbers have tanked.
Paterson’s about as popular as root canal work, so Spitzer’s encouraged by “halfway-decent poll numbers.” Glass half full, Eliot?
But hey, the wee wifey’s standing by his side, so that makes it all right, doesn’t it?
