Eliot Spitzer Chokes Up About Prostitution Scandal Fallout (VIDEO)
Matt | On 09, Jul 2013
Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) is coming back in the spotlight these days as he seeks another office.
He resigned from the top job in the Empire State in 2008 because of a much-publicized prostitution scandal. After that he laid low for several years, only recently announcing that he would seek the office of New York City comptroller.
Now he’s been making his media rounds as he gears up to hopefully land the spot at the Big Apple’s top financial officer. Of course, coming back from any scandal, a politician must be messaged to the tee. Spitzer has hit every major media outlet he can think of to get back in the public’s good graces.
In this interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, watch Spitzer talk about both what he can bring to the job and how the 2008 scandal changed his life. (Jump to about the 15:25 mark to see him get choked about when reflecting on his past).
