Spitzer meets signature deadline

Posted: Updated:

Eliot Spitzer has met the deadline to file thousands of petition signatures for his bid to revive his political career by running for New York City comptroller.

Spitzer said that "over 27,000 signatures" were submitted to the city Board of Elections just after 10:30 p.m. before the midnight Thursday deadline. It came just four days after the tarnished ex-governor launched his campaign.

Spitzer needed 3,750 valid petition signatures to get on the Democratic primary ballot for September.

The filing may not be the last word. Spitzer's opponents or others could challenge signatures for reasons such as incomplete addresses or missing dates.

If that happens, elections officials will have to review the objections, hold a hearing late this month and decide whether the signatures qualify. The matter could ultimately go to court.

Spitzer's main opponent, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, said he will not challenge the petitions.
