We observe that deep delight that former Governor Eliot Spitzer, who recently lost the race for NYC comptroller — and looked to be chastened by his defeat, because he is Eliot Spitzer for God’s sake — has brushed the ignominy from his soul, and is headed our way again:
Over lunch at Prime Grill Tuesday, Spitzer was overheard saying that his recent unsuccessful run for New York City Comptroller will make it easier for him to run for another office in the near future.
“I have heard he may challenge state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman” — whom he has trashed in public for being weak — “or state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli,” said one political savant.
And who was the lucky lunch companion, the receiving vessel of so much untrammeled ambition?
Spitzer was devouring kosher sushi and prime steaks with lawyer Avi Schick, one of his prosecutors back when he was State Attorney General.
Alright — call us naive, but we really did not know that there was such a thing as kosher sushi. That has been rectified.
