Spitzer’s Post-Governor Expenses

A curious reader wondered whether Eliot Spitzer might be using leftover campaign cash, as opposed to his personal money, to pay for his new spokeswoman and private security detail. (As of the last filing, Spitzer had $2.9 million in campaign funds at his disposal, and the rules governing what he can do with that money are a “gray area”.)

The answer, according to spokeswoman Anna Cordasco, is no. Spitzer is paying for both, she said, “out of his own pocket.”
