Disgraced “Luv Guv,” Former Governor Eliot Spitzer, Hitting The Campaign Trail Again

A former attorney general and governor of New York is attempting to re-enter political life, this time as a candidate for New York City Comptroller.

Eliot Spitzer was out over the weekend collecting signatures for his candidacy, saying that he is hoping the public has forgiven him.

Amidst a scandal involving prostitution and his patronage as “Client 9″ of the Emperors Club VIP escort agency, former New York Governor Eliot Laurence Spitzer resigned in March 2008.

The couple has three daughters together. Silda Alice Wall Spitzer, a Harvard Law School graduate and former attorney with the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (popularly known as “Skadden Arps”), gave up her career to help that of her husband and has stood by him throughout the scandal.  That fact inspired the CBS television drama “The Good Wife.”

Just how far the prostitution scandal remains behind Spitzer remains to be seen.  Ultimately the voters in New York City will decide just how much forgiveness they have in their hearts.
