Nearly two years after a scandal brought him down, former Governor Eliot Spitzer is considering another run for public office.
NY1 has learned that in recent days, Spitzer has discussed with at least one Democratic fundraiser about a return to public office, including running for state comptroller or again for state attorney general.
However, a source close to Spitzer denied these allegations.
The New York Post reported today that Spitzer is seriously eyeing a run for state comptroller, a position currently held by Thomas DiNapoli.
Spitzer has previously strongly denied he would run for office again.
Some New Yorkers told NY1 they think it’s a bad idea for Spitzer to return to politics.
