Elliot Spitzer heading back to politics

Apparently five years is enough time for forgiveness.

Former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, who resigned in 2008 due to a prostitution scandal, is making his way back into politics.

Spitzer tells the New York Times that he’ll enter the race to become Comptroller in New York City.

The 54-year-old Spitzer, who lives in Manhattan, says he’s hopes New Yorkers give him a second chance.

Spitzer was the state’s Attorney General before being elected governor in late 2006.

He will now face off in the Democratic Primary against a number of candidates including Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.
