In a rare interview, Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York, recently sat down with Tara Rosenblum to discuss everything from politics to his personal life.
Spitzer became the “sheriff of Wall Street” during his tenure as state attorney general. He was then elected in 2007 to the office of governor. He resigned in 2008 due to his involvement in a prostitution ring.
When asked what life lessons he has learned since then, he responded: "Without delving into too much, we all can be replaced.”
