Eliot Spitzer’s quest to be New York City’s next comptroller, and the media blitz that it has wrought, landed him on MSNBC’s Morning Joe where host Mika Brzezinski provided an opportunity for the former governor to discuss how he’s changed since a prostitution scandal seemingly ended his political career.
Mika Brzezinski: How are you different than you were five, six years ago? What has changed, personally, of who you are?
Eliot Spitzer: A lot of pain. A lot of pain.
Brzezinski: That’s it?
Spitzer: Yeah, you got through that pain and you change.
