Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer is mobbed by reporters while attempting to collect signatures to run for comptroller of New York City on July 8, 2013 in New York City. Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 after it was discovered that he was using a high end call girl service.

Remember ForwardNY, the powerful, shadowy super-PAC made up of all of Eliot Spitzer's deep-pocketed enemies on Wall Street that was going to raise a million dollars for an "ambitious effort" to defeat Spitzer in his race for city comptroller? Well, it fell a little short of that goal — $998,800 short, to be exact.
