Silda Wall Spitzer, wife of Eliot Spitzer, is reportedly poised to dump her hard-charging, hooker-loving husband immediately after the election. Page Six reports, "Multiple sources tell us long-suffering Silda — who, he last night admitted, will not be joining him on the campaign trail — 'has had enough' and plans to start divorce proceedings after his run for New York City comptroller is over."
One source says, "Silda is telling her female friends that she is done with him. She will file for divorce after the [Nov. 5] election," while another explains, "Silda is saying she is going to wait until this is all over. She has been telling friends, ‘This is too hard. This is too rough.’"
Eliot Spitzer suddenly jumped into the race for NYC Comptroller on July 7—just days before petitions to get on the ballot had to be turned in. Silda Spitzer hasn't been campaigning for him, though she did gather two signatures for her husband. He's claimed he's running with his family's support, and said to a Post reporter last night, "I think it’s fair to say I’m running for office. No other member of my family is running for office. And I think the public is going to judge me, not who else is with me or not with me. She’s got a career. There are other things I think the public appreciates — I’m out here fighting every day for them."
