Spitzer, who infamously was forced to resign as governor after a call girl scandal, is reportedly seeing hot New York City Pr whiz Lis Smith. He’s more than 20 years her senior.
She’s New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio’s interim administration press spokesman and reportedly has the inside track for the job full-time.
But her alleged affair with Spitzer, 54, first reported by The New York Daily News, may complicate things. As it turns out, Spitzer is still married.
Oops, a small detail? Maybe so, maybe not.
Spitzer insiders are playing down the whole matter by claiming that he and his long-suffering wife of 26 years, Silda Wall Spitzer have been living apart for several months. Some speculate a divorce is in the works.
The story is getting extra mileage, not only because it involves a hoser like Spitzer, but because political wags are proclaiming it the first scandal of the de Blasio administration–and he’s not even officially taken office yet.
Smith is well known in local and national Democratic circles. She worked for President Obama’s 2012 campaign and also repped for Spitzer’s abortive run for city controller. He lost in the Democratic primary.

So far, there has been no official confirmation of the nature of their relationship. The News is relying on “two sources” close to the situation. But you know how that goes in this day and age of fast and loose Internet news.
Spitzer was forced to resign as New York Governor in 2008 after becoming involved with Ashley Dupre, a high-price call girl for a New Jersey prostitution ring.
Before the scandal, he was considered a potential candidate for President of the United States.
