Women's groups denounce Eliot Spitzer's comptroller campaign
Two city women's rights groups are imploring voters to pass on Eliot Spitzer when they head to the polls.
Sonia Ossorio, the president of the city's branch of the National Organization for Women, and Taina Bien-Amie, the executive director of the Women's City Club of New York, protested outside City Hall Wednesday to denounce the former governor's run for city comptroller.
Ossorio said although Spitzer didn't face prosecution for his 2008 prostitution scandal which led to his resignation, and has gone on an apology tour, he still can't be trusted to hold office.
"I don't see what he has done to own up to participating in an industry that exploits women and girls," she said.
