A day after Eliot Spitzer said his wife won't be accompanying him on the campaign trail for New York City comptroller, noting "she's got a career," the NY Post reported Silda Spitzer is planning to divorce her husband.
On Friday, the Post reported that Silda Spitzer will begin divorce proceedings after her husband's run for comptroller is over.
The tarnished former governor told the New York Post that voters will judge him, "not who else is with me or not with me."
Silda Spitzer is reportedly "unhappy with his decision to reenter politics, thrusting their relationship back into the public spotlight."
Spitzer added during a campaign event in the Bronx on Thursday that he was the one running for office, saying "no other member of my family is running for office."
Silda Wall Spitzer famously stood by her husband in 2008 when he stepped down as governor in a prostitution scandal.
A former corporate lawyer, she now works for a private equity group where she focuses on investments in clean energy.
