NY Paper Lists Eliot Spitzer’s Sins on Front Page

Eliot Spitzer is receiving not just hate mail, but newspaper front page hate mail. All 3 major NYC newspapers endorsed his opponent, but Spitzer is nonetheless nearly 20 points ahead in the polls.

Eliot Spitzer is running for NYC comptroller.

Eliot Spitzer is running for NYC comptroller.

The New York Daily News let loose its succinct analysis of former New York State governor and current candidate for New York City Comptroller Eliot Spitzer’s character and its hopes for his future on its front page over the weekend.  There was a news article inside the paper that went into far greater detail, but the front page, as captured in a picture by Breitbart, said it all.

“Liar, criminal, sex cheat, fraudster – and he still wants your trust,” and then, in huge typeface and all capital letters: “scr*w you!”

For those who have not yet been paying attention, Eliot Spitzer was forced to resign his position as governor of New York in 2008 when it was revealed that, despite a history as an aggressive prosecutor of prostitutes and pimps while he was NY’s attorney general, had his own history of frequenting high-end call girls.

After a year or two out of the spotlight, Spitzer went back out in public with a vengeance.  He wrote for a widely-read online magazine, and in 2010 he became the cohost of a talk show on CNN.  Earlier this year Spitzer announced he was a candidate for the position of New York City’s Comptroller.

The position of City Comptroller, not typically considered a high-profile one, is one laden with potential.

The comptroller is really the chief financial officer of the city, and New York’s is responsible for 700 employees.  As comptroller, Spitzer would be responsible for ensuring the financial health of NYC, advising the mayor and city council about all the city’s programs, operations, fiscal policies and financial transactions.

That is a big job, one with plenty of potential for lots of photo ops and high profile “gotchas,” the kind Spitzer loved when he was in his heyday as the “Sheriff of Wall Street.”

But if the Daily News has anything to say about it, Spitzer will not become “NYC’s piggybank sheriff.” In addition to the screaming front page headline, there was an article endorsing Spitzer’s opponent, Scott Stringer, Manhattan’s borough president.

The New York Times also endorsed Stringer, as did the New York Post.

But it is Spitzer who may have the last laugh.  Recent polls show him with nearly a 20 point lead over Stringer.

On the other hand, maybe not.

Spitzer’s wife, Silda, stood by her husband throughout his public disgrace.  However, after Spitzer announced this spring that he was again running for public office, Silda has been a no-show on the campaign trail. There are reports she will seek a divorce from Spitzer as soon as the campaign is over.

Spitzer’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

  1. Dave Lobell says:

    Mr. Spitzer having no sense of personal responsibility for himself or to the entire Jewsih People continues to be an embarassment to all of us. It is hard to accept but not to believe that this degenerate has the ultimate Chutzpa to run himself as a candidate for public office after what has transpired. Moreover, the brain dead electorate- that has not demanded that he drop out of the race immediately- deserves this piece dog manure to be the next City of New York Comptroller!
    Wake up you selfish brain dead idiots!

  2. Tanya Vijay says:

    People are smart and that is why they are voting for Mr Spitzer. truthdig.com/report/page2/not_too_big_to_jail_eliot_spitzer_is_wall_streets_worst_nightmare_20130819/

  3. While I agree with what you're trying to say, you've gone way over the top in the language you used. He is, after all, a fellow Jew.

  4. Alan Kardon says:

    A fellow Jew does not act like that. Shame on him and you for defending him.

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    It seems that the only requirement to be Controller in New York City is to know the #9. What other qualifications does he have?

  6. Joseph Colen says:

    Are there any more decent Jews in the New York public arena.

  7. Chaim Szmidt says:

    Daniel Paul Gold Spitzer's Jewishness is merely an accident of birth , coupled with the fact that he was given an operation when he was too young to understand what was going on. He's is a Jew, but certainly not one we can take pride in.

  8. Dan Silagi says:

    Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were fellow Jews, too.

  9. Joseph Colen… no I don't believe there are any more decent Jews in New York, in my view the real "Jewish nation" is in Israel and its almost as if there are "two" groups claiming Jewish heritage – however, it is only Israel that is the "real Jewish Nation"… the others are only interested in power, lust and greed – the same vices that took down the three great Kings. Americans (in spite of Obama) LOVE Israel. Shalom from an American Christian.

  10. Steve Bell says:

    Did you just opine that there are no decent Jews in NYC? I'm not sure what your message here is saying. Could you clarify a bit please? .
