Records Show Spitzer Didn't Vote in 2012 Election

Thursday, 11 Jul 2013 07:23 AM

Eliot Spitzer didn't vote in the 2012 presidential election even after he wrote a column proclaiming his support for Barack Obama.

Citing New York City Board of Elections records, the New York Post (http://bit.ly/15hunma ) reports that the former New York governor didn't vote on Nov. 6, 2012. Nor did he submit an absentee ballot.

On Monday, Spitzer launched an 11th -hour comeback campaign to become New York City comptroller. He has until midnight Thursday to collect 3,750 valid signatures to get on the Democratic primary ballot.

A spokeswoman for Spitzer told the Post he didn't vote because he had to serve as a paid co-anchor of Current TV's round-table election coverage.

Spitzer wrote his column in support of Obama four days before the election. It appeared on Slate magazine's website.
