NEW YORK (AP) — Two brash New Yorkers whose careers were wrecked by scandal — Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer — are attempting political comebacks in Tuesday's primaries after a campaign season that played out like a reality show.
At least one of them looks likely to be voted off the stage.
Weiner quit Congress in 2011 after sending lewd messages and pictures to women. And Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 after having sex with prostitutes.
As primary day arrived, the latest polls had Weiner in fourth place in the race for the Democratic nomination for mayor of New York. His campaign all but collapsed over the summer after he was caught sexting again.
As for Spitzer, the polls showed him locked in a tight race for the nomination for city comptroller.
