Now You Never Need to Think About How to Pronounce Comptroller Again

It was not a good night to be a disgraced former politician. When Eliot Spitzer entered the race for this low-profile office, he jumped into what seemed like an insurmountable lead. There were even points last night when it seemed like a run-off might be necessary to determine the winner. But Scott Stringer ended up winning decisively, and Spitzer conceded defeat somewhat early on, perhaps exiting New York politics forever. Well, perhaps not. But we can dream, can’t we?

  • this is amateurish and blatantly biased.

    shameful coverage of a serious election with very serious consequences, especially for boroklyn’s redevelopment future.

  • @politico It’s true. I’m really biased against your boy Anthony Weiner. But it wasn’t just me! It was also 95% of the NYC Democrats who voted yesterday. So, while it must be hard for you, you’re just going to have to learn to move on. Good luck!
