Things to Know About Eliot Spitzer


The Gothamist


I found this...and thought I'd share it with you all...................andy


He wants to reform campaign finance laws. Spitzer told a group of government reform activists (aka Goo Goos - the good government types) he was negotiating with the Senate and Assembly, but State Senate Majority leader Joe Bruno said, "We've been close for a month, but close, you know, you don't get a cigar," and pointed out that it's easier for Spitzer to introduce campaign finance reform because he's rich (like almost $2 million reported on tax return rich).
His public opinion numbers
have gone up a little.
He will
submit legislation to legalize gay marriage, but also said, "I do not think there is a realistic shot that it gets passed." (He's introducing the as a "statement of principle.")
He's getting
good grades on green issues so far, though he needs improvement on "Making a Stronger Commitment For Environmental Justice" and "Promoting a Smart Growth Development Strategy"
He
got Sanjaya's autograph at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday. Even though People magazine reps just thought he was any ol' Sanjaya fan.
