Tuesday wasn’t a good night for New York City politicians involved in sex scandals.

Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, Vito Lopez and Micah Kellner all went down in defeat in Democratic primaries.

Former Gov. Spitzer (running for New York City comptroller), former Congressman Weiner (running for NYC mayor) and former state Assemblyman Lopez (running for NYC council) were looking for political comebacks after resigning their offices amid sex scandals.

Kellner, a state assemblyman, lost his bid for New York City Council.

The National Organization for Women cheered the results.

"It turns out sexual misconduct is a fast track to a concession speech," Sonia Ossorio, president of NOW-NYC, said in a statement. "This election makes it clear that voters will reject candidates who fail to treat women with respect and dignity."
