Speaking from his own personal experience, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer believes it is too soon for Anthony Weiner to return to the political arena, the New York Oberserver reports.
“I think we can all agree that a year is not a terribly lengthy period of time,” Spitzer said during an appearance on NY1's "Inside City Hall." “Obviously I’m in a sort of difficult position to talk about this. It’s been five years since I left office. Five years is more than one. You can see people’s sensibilities change as they see you, talk to you, as you’ve done more things.”
Weiner resigned from Congress a year ago after indecent photos sent from his Twitter account surfaced, but rumors have swirled recently that he might be on the verge of a comeback — something the outspoken former U.S. House representative has denied. In 2008, Spitzer was embroiled in his own scandal after it was revealed that he patronized a prostitution service, ultimately leading to his resignation.
