Fox Reporter Gasparino: Spitzer May Run for Mayor

By    |   Thursday, 03 Mar 2011 02:28 PM

Eliot Spitzer, the disgraced former Democratic governor of New York, is trying to rehabilitate himself with a talk show on CNN. And Fox Business Network correspondent Charles Gasparino says the former brothel client may run for mayor of New York City in 2013.

Eliot Spitzer
To be sure, “the Spitzer-for-mayor scenario is far from a layup,” Gasparino writes in a New York Post opinion piece.

“The idea is that Spitzer, the son of a near-billionaire real-estate magnate, would run as a self-financed independent, a la Mike Bloomberg. But he's got baggage that Bloomberg, for all his crass temperament, didn't have in 2001 — starting with his record in state politics.

"Polarizing" doesn't capture the Spitzer effect: During his short stint as governor, he was widely despised even by many fellow Democrats as a bully, threatening or throwing temper tantrums at the slightest provocation. Who needs a tough-talking lightweight as mayor?”
