Spitzer will not rule out a run for office-Fortune
NEW YORK, April 8 |
NEW YORK, April 8 (Reuters) - Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer told Fortune that he will not rule out another run for public office.
Spitzer resigned his office in 2008 after an embarrassing prostitution scandal. He became governor after serving as attorney general with investigations into cases involving tainted Wall Street research and fraud.
"I love politics," Spitzer told Fortune last month. "The substance, the debate about the issues ..."
As for a race in 2010, Spitzer said it is "just hard to see," adding, "I've never said I would never consider running for office again."
Since leaving office, Spitzer has re-established himself by writing columns at the online magazine Slate and teaching. He told Fortune that he is in "unceasing agony" and "incredibly frustrated" over no longer being "where I would like to be" -- which is finishing his first term as governor.
