Spitzer: Weiner’s Not Getting My Vote

Former New York governor and current candidate for New York City comptroller Eliot Spitzer said that fellow scandal-tarred Democrat Anthony Weiner isn’t getting his vote for mayor.

When pressed by Chris Matthews as to whom he would vote for in the upcoming Democratic mayoral primary, Spitzer — who was forced to resign as governor in 2008 after he admitted to patronizing prostitutes — declined to name a specific candidate. Matthews then asked, “You’re not going to vote for Anthony Weiner, can you just say that right now? You don’t think he should be mayor of New York.” Spitzer answered, “Fair point. That is correct.”
