Quinn: Spitzer shouldn't judge Weiner

ADVERTISEMENT
Quinn said she agreed with Spitzer, but said his own personal indiscretions should temper his comments. 

“Absolutely. It’s a totally inappropriate and unacceptable use of in this case government equipment,” Quinn said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “But I don’t think Eliot Spitzer is in a position to be pointing fingers at anybody as it relates to their private lives.”

Spitzer resigned as New York governor in 2008 after a police sting revealed that he was patronizing high-end prostitutes. 

Quinn has endorsed Spitzer's opponent, Manhattan Borough president Scott Stringer, in the comptroller race.

Polls show Quinn leading in her bid for New York City mayor after the latest Weiner scandal.
