correcting the record
The war between the city’s tabloids warmed up last night when Confidential, the Daily News‘s gossip page, posted an item refuting “new stories making the rounds” that ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his political operative girlfriend got frisky in a public hot tub on their recent trip to Jamaica.
Later in the night, the Post posted today’s front-page story alleging that Mr. Spitzer sucked on the toes of a topless Lis Smith in front of children at the resort where they stayed over the weekend.
Ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer insists he’s not diving back into the political arena just yet, contrary to a New York Post report earlier this evening.
This morning, the New York Post floated the idea of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani making yet another bid for Gracie Mansion, which few politicos in New York City took seriously. Well, you can count current Mayor Michael Bloomberg among the skeptics.
“Knowing Rudy, I think at this point in his life, I’d be shocked if he wanted to come back, but you can ask him,” Mr. Bloomberg told us during a press conference announcing a new media center in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
Mr. Bloomberg also said, while he thinks it would be too late for Mr. Giuliani to run in next year’s race, he’d welcome Mr. Giuliani into the 2017 mayoral campaign.
