Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer plans run for New York City comptroller

July 8, 2013

It’s official: Client 9 is planning a political comeback.

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who stepped down in 2008 over a prostitution scandal, is planning a return to political life with a run for New York City comptroller.

In an interview with The New York Times on Sunday, Spitzer said he hoped city voters would give him a chance.

“I’m hopeful there will be forgiveness, I am asking for it,” the Democrat said.

Spitzer elaborated on his desire to run later Sunday to the New York Post.

“I’m running because having been attorney general and governor and assistant district attorney and having spent much of my career in public service, I cherish that,” Spitzer told the Post. “I want to do to the comptroller’s office what I did to the AG’s office: re-energize it, re-envision it, and hopefully the public will give me that opportunity.

“I have acknowledged the wrongdoing and have moved on.”
