Spitzer goes to church to ask forgiveness

Eliot Spitzer spent the last few days wooing voters at a number of New York City churches. The New York Daily News reports:

Eliot Spitzer is on a forgiveness tour.

The former New York governor has been quietly visiting churches across the city expressing remorse for the prostitution scandal that drove him from office. And he wants to explain why he’s attempting a surprising political comeback by running for New York City controller.

The soul-searching sinner visited several churches last week and at least three more Sunday, but his campaign has not put any of the appearances on his public schedules. He said he didn’t want the crush of reporters following him to get in the way of having “authentic” conversations with voters.
