Eliot Spitzer gets CNN show

Disgraced governor to co-host political talk program

Prostitute scandals can’t keep Eliot Spitzer down. He may have been forced to resign from office two years ago after the public learned that he slept with a hooker, but he’s back on his feet and set to co-host a daily political talk show with Kathleen Parker, a conservative columnist. “CNN will be offering a lively roundup of all the best ideas—presented by two of the most intelligent and outspoken figures in the country,” said CNN president Jon Klein. The show starts in the fall and is meant to compete with Fox’s popular and controversial show, “The O’Reilly Factor.”
