Spitzer Planning To Step Down At 11? (Just In Time To Catch The 11:35 Acela To DC?)

That’s what the Post says, and Charlie Gasparino’s sources are corroborating, though there’s always the chance Spitzer will back out of whatever deal’s being negotiated, if he’s not satisfied with the terms (apparently the Governor’s campaigning hard to be allowed to run for/hold office after a short rehabilitation period, and to honor all upcoming, previously scheduled appointments with the Club, which were paid for in full and would be unbecoming of an elected official who made his career judging others by a strict moral code to back out of at the last minute, not to mention just plain rude). And according to someone Carney just spoke to, Big E was all set to step down on Monday until an aide (with an awesome sense of humor) convinced him to stay. So it’s possible he’ll change his mind again.
Our two cents? Either get the hell out of here or hold a press conference now and say “Fuck all of you, I’m staying right where I am. And not that it’s any of your business, but since the cat’s more or less out of the bag, you should know that no, I don’t plan on easing up on the hookers. The only thing that’s going to change is that I won’t be burdened with trying to keep it a secret. Man, that feels good. Like a 105-pound weight off my chest.”
Unless Dick Grasso is going to man up and admit to guiding it in, no new details are emerging and, frankly, people were already bored of this story yesterday. Wrap it up already, you indecisive idiot (full disclosure: I stole that line from Kristen).

Eliot Spitzer's Liason To The Hooker World Announces Plan To Run For Mayor Of New York

Earlier this month, the Times reported that Mayor Bloomberg and his advisers had been "floating the possibility of mayoral runs to at least five boldface figures," including Chuck Schumer, Mort Zuckerman, Ed Rendell, Edward Skyler, and Hillary Clinton. Strangely left off the list? A woman who some might say is actually Hizzoner's most worthy successor and who conveniently announced her intent to run today: Kristin Davis, the woman who once supplied Eliot Spitzer with hot young tail.
