Something fishy is going on in New York City.

Two of recent history’s most shamed politicians—Eliot Spitzer, who stepped down as governor of New York in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal, and Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 after tweeting crotch shots—are back and running for office. Spitzer wants to be comptroller; Weiner’s eyeing the mayor’s mansion.

For better or worse, both men have a solid shot at winning their race and taking back a piece of the tainted spotlight. So we had to ask—if only one of them could pull off a comeback, which one would you pick? Whose indiscretions are more easily forgivable?
