Spitzer, Weiner maintain poll position

Sex scandals don’t disqualify you for public office in New York City.

Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner are leading their respective races for city comptroller and mayor, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Spitzer clobbered his Democratic rival, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, 48-33 percent — and even beat him among women, 44-32 percent.

Black voters were even more forgiving of the hooker-happy ex-governor, giving him 61 percent of their support, compared to 26 percent for the lesser-known Stringer.
