NEW YORK (AP) – Eliot Spitzer didn’t vote in the 2012 presidential election even after he wrote a column proclaiming his support for Barack Obama.
Citing New York City Board of Elections records, the New York Post (

On Monday, Spitzer launched an 11th -hour comeback campaign to become New York City comptroller. He has until midnight Thursday to collect 3,750 valid signatures to get on the Democratic primary ballot.
A spokeswoman for Spitzer told the Post he didn’t vote because he had to serve as a paid co-anchor of Current TV’s round-table election coverage.
Spitzer wrote his column in support of Obama four days before the election. It appeared on Slate magazine’s website.
