Eliot Spitzer Steers Clear of Schwarzenegger story

As we reported yesterday, an afternoon story on CNN about political sex scandals left out one of its own: Eliot Spitzer.

And last night, the Governor-turned-cable news host, went one further. He didn’t touch the story of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s love child. The Wrap’s Dylan Stableford writes,

Instead, Spitzer, who stepped down as New York governor in 2008 after news of his own affair with a prostitute rocked the state, focused on a sex scandal with less parallels to his own — Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French IMF chief jailed on New York’s infamous Rikers Island.

There were additional, quick segments on Pakistan, the Louisiana Spillway floodwaters and a new “birther” book claim. But nothing — not a single mention! — of the straying Governator.

FishbowlLA reports on who else is staying silent on the Schwarzenegger story.
