BOSTON (CBS) – Both Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner became infamous for their sexual misconduct while serving in office. Despite the very public flame-out, both men now stand poised to reclaim the role of public official. Weiner could very well be the Democratic nominee for Mayor of NYC, and Spitzer has charged into the lead in the race for NYC Comptroller. The NightSide Think Tank is in studio to take a look at how these two disgraced politicians could be back in the public’s grace so quickly. Marisa DeFranco and Adriana Cohen will talk about whether or not politicians like Spitzer and Weiner should get a second chance so easily, and what the situation would look like if the two were women instead of men.
And don’t forget to stay tuned for a special announcement from Marisa DeFranco!
