Spitzer Comeback Continues with Lecture at Harvard Ethics Center


Former governor Eliot Spitzer will lecture on Thursday at the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics at Harvard — his topic is, “From Ayn Rand to Ken Feinberg – How Quickly the Paradigm Shifts. What Should Be the Rationale for Government Participation in the Market?” — which provokes the usual reaction. The Daily News finds that Spitzer’s former madam, Kristin Davis, has written in protest to the Center, presumably as an alumnus. And the Post remarkably has come into possession of the same letter! “What chutzpah,” says the Post, which should know, having ridden a story about Spitzer’s alleged desire to return to public office to several scandalicious headlines a few months back.

The former governor continues to write for Slate, teach at City College (to which his father recently donated $25 million; Spitzer fils kicks back his salary), and bide his time.
