A conversation with Lloyd Constantine about Eliot Spitzer's downfall

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – Eliot Spitzer was elected governor of New York in 2006 with great hope. He promised change on day one. But less than 15 months after taking the oath of office, Spitzer left the governor's mansion in disgrace.

His longtime friend and adviser Lloyd Constantine has authored a new book Journal of the Plague Year: An Insider's Chronicle of Eliot Spitzer's Short and Tragic Reign. He joined WBFO's Mark Scott on the phone earlier this week. Constantine says Spitzer's behavior began to change well before the story surfaced that he was patronizing prostitutes.

Constantine will be signing copies of his new book Wednesday at 7:00pm at the Talking Leaves bookstore on Main Street.
