Biography: Eliot Spitzer was lauded as the “Sheriff of Wall Street’ during his time as state attorney general for his unique use of the Man Act that allowed him unprecedented power to prosecute financial corruption. Spitzer’s 2006 run for governor was more coronation than election — he got 60 percent of the vote. The new governor quickly clashed with incumbent legislators in Albany and was embroiled in a scandal about the use of State Troopers. On March 10, 2008, The New York Times reported that Spitzer had been identified in a prostitution investigation. Two days later, Spitzer held a press conference with his wife Silda by his side and admitted to frequenting high-price prostitutes. He then resigned. Since then, Spitzer has worked as a journalist for CNN and subsequently Current TV. He also taught political science at City College. On July 7, 2013, Spitzer announced his self-financed candidacy for comptroller, launching a media firestorm.
