Spitzer returns to politics after prostitution scandal

New York's disgraced governor, Eliot Spitzer, who resigned five years ago after the feds caught him soliciting high-end prostitutes - has announced he's running New York City comptroller.

Spitzer says his campaign is personal and not just about redemption.

And that he hopes voters will forgive him and focus on his record rather than the prostitution scandal.

Spitzer to run against madam

"I sinned, I owned up to it, I looked them in the eye, I resigned, I held myself accountable – I think that was the only right thing to do, It's now five years later. I hope they (voters) look back at what I did as attorney general, as governor, as a prosecutor and say, 'Hey, this guy was ahead of the curve on Wall Street issues, he protected low wage workers on the environment, there's a record there that I hope they'll look to," Spitzer said on CBS This Morning.

OutFront tonight: Comedian Dean Obeidallah, Radio Show Host and Comedian Stephanie Miller and CNN Contributor Reihan Salam.
