Ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer Plans NYC Comptroller Run

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer will meet voters in Manhattan while launching his post-scandal political comeback attempt.

Spitzer also will collect petition signatures for his New York City comptroller run during the midday appearance Monday in Union Square.

Candidates for citywide offices like comptroller have to have 3,750 signatures from registered voters in their party by Thursday.

Spitzer stepped down in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal.

The Democrat has spoken in the past about the potential for the comptroller’s job to look into corporate misdeeds.

That would be similar to what he did as the state’s attorney general, when he was known as the “sheriff of Wall Street.”
