Spitzer is back in politics

Spitzer to join Weiner in making a come back

weinerspitzerThe New York Times is reporting that former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is reentering the political arena with a run for the office of New York City Comptroller. Spitzer resigned the governorship five years ago amid a prostitution scandal involving Ashley Dupree of Monmouth County.

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who was forced to resign after tweeting nude and nearly nude pictures of himself to young women, and lying about it, is also making a political comeback. Weiner is running in the New York City Democratic Primary for Mayor.

Spitzer and Weiner are hoping that New York voters are as forgiving as South Carolina voters when it comes to personal indiscretions.  Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s political career appeared to be over in 2011 after he left his state to be with his Argentinian mistress.  Sanford was elected to Congress in May.

Jim McGreevey has to be tempted.

    What gets me about most of these guys is that when they have a press conference after they are caught, most of them drag their wives out with them who are forced to stand in front of the media while their hubbys have some explaining to do. The only exception I remember is Weiner and I’m not sure if it was his or his wifes choice that she not be there.
