Is Eliot Spitzer Returning to Office?

Only 18 months ago, we knew him as Client 9, but soon, he may be a U.S. senator: Eliot Spitzer is gunning for statewide office, sources tell the New York Post. The disgraced governor has reportedly held informal talks about a possible bid for state comptroller or for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Kirsten Gillibrand. Sources say that Spitzer is ready to mount a challenge against a fellow Democrat if it means returning to office. “He’s weighing it,” a source told the New York Post. Though three close associates deny Spitzer’s intentions, another source says: “There are people around him who want to see him [in office], and he sees himself there, too. He loves to be in the limelight. But he knows it can’t happen.”
