Eliot Spitzer Talks New Bid For Political Office

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer. "First, I wouldn't say they should. I want to ask them to, and I think there's a difference there that's important. I want to say, 'Look, I had a long career as a prosecutor, as attorney general, was governor. I sinned, I owned up to it, I looked them in the eye, I resigned. I held myself accountable.' I think that was the only right thing to do. It's now five years later, and I hope they look back at what I did as an attorney general, as governor and as a prosecutor and say, 'You know what, this guy was ahead of the curve on the Wall Street issues. He protected low-wage workers, on the environment, protecting (the) community.' There's a record there that I hope they will look to and say, 'Yes, the comptroller's position is one that fits the skill set and we hope to bring him back for public service'."
