Spitzer Heckled, Asks Public For ‘Forgiveness’ In Bid For NYC Comptroller
CBS New York ^ | 7/8/13 | Staff

(...)

As WCBS 880′s Peter Haskell and CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported, the former governor’s return to the campaign trail was not without hecklers, shouting things such as the following:

“Spitzer, you cheated on your wife!”

“You betrayed your constituents. You abandoned your wife. You betrayed everybody!”

“This is about power. You just want power, man. If you want public service go volunteer somewhere!”

“Did you leave your black socks on?”

Spitzer appeared to take it in stride, as if he expected it.

“This is what I look forward to — dealing with the public,” said Spitzer. “This is New York. You know when we go to a ballpark we heckle the pitcher who throws one bad pitch. We have a little bit of the heckler in each one of us. At a certain point it passes the line of decorum, but this is New York. This is politics. I’m game for it. I got skin as thick as a rhinoceros so I’m ready for anything.”

Willing, again, to trade his personal dignity for a government job on the dole, and on the ‘take’.

Scumbag, slimy sleazeball.

The man makes some good points.

It’s NYC. The majority of voters there will give him and Weiner a pass for their infedelities. For liberals it’s all about keeping power and it doesn’t matter who the Democrats put up for elective office they have to win at all costs.

It takes a true psychopath to run for public office.

Spitzer is certainly qualified.

See, Spitzer just threw a ball on a 3 - 2 count. What's the big deal?

“The happiest years of my life professionally were as attorney general, as governor, as a prosecutor and I’d like to go back to public service,”

LOL! No kidding? I bet you would indeed. Good gubmint' job with hot/cold running hookers 24/7, "living on the arm", zero accountability, screwing up people's lives for fun, all the graft/corruption/kickbacks you can choke down, and now, unfettered access to all that state money. What an incredible little maggot.

I give him points for being selective. Other than the potential STD buffet, she is rather good looking for a prostitute.

If Spitzer gets his shot to send some EEEEEEEEEEEVIL Bankers to prison, he will quickly redeem himself with Democrat voters.

God, how I despise that term “public service”. They’re all so noble as they line their pockets.

Chuck Todd and the New York Times are having a nervous breakdown over this, lol. Why? They didn’t give a damn when Weiner threw his...hat into the ring.

Ironic that he would get heckled in the same town poised to elect Mayor Weiner. Have they no shame?

“Are you going to run with your Weiner buddy?”

The typical smart, savvy and above normal in intelligence New Yorker will vote these two in with a landslide.

Add a comma after "Weiner," and you get an entirely different question.
