“On the corners,” like the hookers he’s so fond of?

Via NY Times:

Eliot Spitzer, who resigned as governor of New York five years ago amid a prostitution scandal, is re-entering political life, with a run for the citywide office of comptroller and a hope that voters are ready to look past his previous misconduct.

Mr. Spitzer, a Democrat, said he was eager to plunge back into politics and believed he could revolutionize the often-overlooked city office into a new model for government accountability and shareholder activism.

“I’m hopeful there will be forgiveness, I am asking for it,” he said in a telephone interview on Sunday night.

His re-entry comes in an era when politicians — like Representative Mark Sanford of South Carolina and the New York mayoral contender Anthony D. Weiner — have shown that public disapproval, especially over sexual misconduct, can be fleeting, and voters seem open to those who seek forgiveness and redemption. […]

With Mr. Spitzer’s name recognition and three million Democrats in the city, this should not be a difficult task to complete, but he plans to flood the streets and supermarkets with some 100 signature gatherers starting Monday.

“I am going to be on the street corners,” he said. “We will be out across the city.”
