Mrs. Spitzer Stands by Her Man

Swears hubby’s funny.


With Eliot Spitzer’s poll numbers tanking, First Lady Silda Wall Spitzer is suddenly everywhere—last week, she made four public appearances in as many days. “She’s a charm machine,” says one Spitzer insider. Silda, a southern-born corporate lawyer, has a pol’s knack for staying on message. How has Eliot changed since taking office? “You think he needs to change? He is doing what he’s doing because he believes that New York is the greatest place in the world.” What advice does she give him? “Eliot makes his own decisions.” Is there anything we don’t know about him? “He has a really good sense of humor.” Anything funny he’s said recently? “Nothing is coming to mind, but I’ll give it lots of thought and figure something out.”
