NEW YORK, April 8 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.
