Will Eliot Spitzer Return to TV Punditry? Will Anthony Weiner Join Him?

You may have heard by now that former CNN and Current TV host Eliot Spitzer, who resigned as New York governor after a prostitution scandal, and Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress after a sexting scandal both lost their bids for a return to elected office. Spitzer lost his primary race for New York City Comptroller, 52% to 48%.

Meanwhile, Weiner came in fifth in the democratic primary for New York City Mayor, garnering 5% of the vote. As he left the political stage for the second time last night, Weiner had a message for the media. As TVSpy reports he gave the finger to a producer from WNBC.

Will the next stop for these two former politicians be TV punditry? Which network would hire them?
