To begin with, Spitzer grew up in The Bronx, and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Princeton. Then, he went on to study Law at Harvard Law School, and after graduating he worked several years as a lawyer, before serving as the public prosecutor in Manhattan. Then, he worked for some years as a lawyer again.

In 1998, he was elected Attorney General for the State of New York; as such, he was concerned about the prevention of white – collar crime. In 2006, he was elected the Governor of New York, taking the oath on New Year’s Eve of 2007, on a program that promised various reforms, but most of his proposals met with opposition in the Republican controlled Senate of New York. Within a year he had only 33% support from voters. Thus, his proposal for a gay marriage permit in New York was killed, as well as other plans like granting licenses to illegal residents based in New York.

In March of 2008, the New York Times published an article alleging that Spitzer had contact with a prostitute girl, Ashley Alexandra Dupre; immediately afterwards Spitzer gave a press conference in which he expressed regret in front of his wife and the people of New York. Then, the leader of the Republicans in New York, James Tedisco, announced an impeachment process to be started – a poll revealed that 68% of voters thought Spitzer should resign, while 54% were for impeachment. Officially, he resigned on the 17th March 2008, and was succeeded by the vice – governor David Paterson, after which he left public life.

However, he worked as a columnist for the online magazine Slate, and since 2009, Spitzer teaches political science at the City College of New York. Spitzer denied speculation about a possible return to politics but did that in 2013 in a failed attempt to be elected as New York City Comptroller. In 2016, he was accused of assault of Russian woman Svetlana Travis-Zakharova – ultimately she was charged with fraud among other charges, but Spitzer continues to be dogged by controversy.

Finally, in the personal life of Eliot Spitzer, he was married to Silda Wall Spitzer from 1987 to 2013; they have three children. Spitzer resides in Manhattan, New York City.

Quotes

#Quote
1From those to whom much is given, much is expected. I have been given much -- the love of my family, the faith and trust of the people of New York, and the chance to lead this state. I am deeply sorry that I did not live up to what was expected of me. To every New Yorker - and to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for - I sincerely apologize.
2I have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family and violates my, or any, sense of right and wrong. I apologize first and most importantly to my family. I apologize to the public, whom I promised better.
