commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Eliot Spitzer is itching to get back into New York State politics…..

BS Top - Grove Eliot Spitzer

Lloyd Grove spoke to three longtime friends of disgraced former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer who confirm he is seriously mulling a political comeback.

Said one friend: “He wants to be relevant. I think he keeps toying with it — running against Kirsten Gillibrand or running for comptroller. He doesn’t have to raise the money. He already has the money, if he decides to do it. I told him he had to consider if this was something he wanted to drag his family back through again, especially if there is anything else [that is, a fresh scandal] out there…I hear that Silda [Spitzer’s wife] doesn’t want him to do it.”

During his Colbert Report appearance, Spitzer jokingly asked his host: “Are you running for office?”

“Are you?” Colbert fired back.

To which Spitzer coyly replied: “I don’t have to answer that question.”

Not yet anyhow.

The Dog is positive that Eliot wants back in…it’s just which seat?…….

  1. James B, Spitzer will be more likely to go for State Comptroller since his old gig State AG is out of the question.

    He can forget about being governor again anytime soon.

    • Answer to that……Tiger Woods…Bill Clinton…and a boat load of other males have done the same or more than Spitzer…and went on…..Eliot Spitzer can and probably will get back into politics in the future……
