Eliot Spitzer skips voting — after penning column, ‘Why I Am Voting’ for Obama

July 12, 2013

Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York who stepped down from office in a scandal involving prostitution, secured the necessary number of signatures to make his comptroller run official, in a last-minute scurry that wrapped about 11 p.m. Thursday evening.

“Against the odds and all predictions — and in light of some who tried to thwart the effort — I am pleased to announce that we have collected more than 27,000 signatures in four days,” he said, in a statement reported by Politico.

But he’s already taking a new public relations hit. The New York Post reported Mr. Spitzer failed to vote in the 2012 presidential election — despite writing a piece for publication called, “Why I Am Voting for Barack Obama.”

A spokeswoman for Mr. Spitzer said he couldn’t vote at the polls because he was in San Francisco to co-anchor Current TV’s roundtable election broadcasts, The Post reported. But he didn’t vote absentee either, the newspaper reported.
