Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is back in the spotlight this week as he has declared a run for Comptroller of the City of New York.
Spitzer is among a slate of politicians from around the country who are making comebacks after having been embroiled in sex scandals, a list that includes former New York Congressman and now NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, and embattled South Carolina Governor turned Congressman Mark Sanford.
A Marist Institute poll released this morning shows former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner is gaining support in his run for mayor of New York City, with 19 percent of voters saying they would nominate him on the democratic ticket, second only to current City Council Speaker Christine Quinn with 24 percent.
Today's panelists are WAMC's Alan Chartock and Ray Graf and University at Albany Journalism Professor and Investigative Reporter, Rosemary Armao. Joe Donahue moderates.
