Ex-Gov. Spitzer Plans Run for NYC Comptroller

Ex-Gov. Spitzer Plans Run for NYC Comptroller

(AP) NEW YORK
Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer says he’s coming back to politics. He tells The New York Times he’s going to run for the office of New York City comptroller.

In an interview Sunday, Spitzer says he’s planning to start collecting the signatures he needs on Monday.

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

Spitzer, a Democrat, stepped down from the governor’s office in 2008 over a prostitution scandal.

Spitzer tells the Times he hopes city voters would be willing to give him a chance.

He’s not the only politician who’s looking for a second chance. Former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is running for mayor. The former congressman left office two years ago amid a scandal over his tweets.
