Spitzer May Run for NYC Comptroller

How the mighty fall ... and then get back up again, especially in New York City politics. Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, who resigned from office in disgrace after his dalliances with prostitutes came to light, may run for New York City comptroller. According to The New York Times, Spitzer is seeking a spot on the ballot for the race. Since leaving office, Spitzer has worked for a variety of media outlets, including Slate, CNN, and Current TV. He left Current in January after its owners announced they were selling the station to Al Jazeera.
