The New York Post’s Maggie Haberman reports that disgraced former NY Democrat Governor Eliot Spitzer is mulling a return to politics.
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.
He says he won’t drag his family through another grueling public ordeal.
Unless, of course, his power-happy enabler of a wife approves.
