    It looks as if the only thing standing between Client #9 and his control of New York City’s five pension funds is a last-minute effort by African-American officeholders to convince their constituents that Eliot Spitzer’s abuses of power make him unfit to be their city’s comptroller.

A 43-year-old African-American with nearly a quarter-century experience on Wall Street, Burnett is also running for city comptroller — as a Republican. Spitzer has brought an explosion of public attention to the race for comptroller. Good: It’s arguably the second most important office in city government and shouldn’t be handed to someone in a walkover. Maybe now we’ll have a conversation about the job — and job qualifications.
