Spitzer Advising Paterson on ‘Scoring with Voters.’

As he struggles to save his flailing campaign, Gov. Paterson has told people he’s taking counsel from the man responsible for him being in charge in the first place — Eliot Spitzer. Sources said Paterson has conveyed to associates that the disgraced ex-governor — who stepped down from his office in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal — has been advising him on how to rescue his flailing administration as he faces a looming Democratic primary challenge from Andrew Cuomo. Sources said the advice has largely gone through an intermediary, instead of direct strategy sessions.
