Spitzer Seeks Political Comeback

Eliot Spitzer (D), "who resigned as governor of New York five years ago amid a prostitution scandal, is re-entering political life, with a run for the citywide office of comptroller and a hope that voters have forgiven him his previous misconduct," the New York Times reports.

Said Spitzer: "I'm hopeful there will be forgiveness, I am asking for it."

"Spitzer, an aggressive watchdog over Wall Street when he served as attorney general, wants to overhaul the sometimes overlooked office into a more activist one, given the power the comptroller exercises over the city's pension funds and city spending."

A source tells the New York Post that Spitzer "will self fund his campaign and plans to spend millions if he needs to."
