Spitzer Says He’ll Run for NYC Comptroller, 5 Years From Scandal

Eliot Spitzer, the former New York attorney general and governor brought down five years ago after patronizing high-priced prostitutes, intends to run for New York City comptroller, he said yesterday.

Spitzer, 54, gained national prominence as New York attorney general for bringing cases against Wall Street securities firms and uncovering the failings of others before resigning in humiliation two years and three months into his four-year gubernatorial term in March 2008.
