Report: De Blasio staffer dating Spitzer

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The spokeswoman for mayor-elect Bill de Blasio is reportedly dating former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

The NY Post reports Lis Smith, 31, who works as communications director for de Blasio has been seen on late night dinner dates with the 54-year-old Spitzer.

According to the Post, Spitzer-- who resigned in disgrace when it was revealed he hired a call girl-- has been seen entering and leaving Smith's apartment on Thompson Street in lower Manhattan at all hours of the day and night.

The manager of the French restaurant Le Pescadeux told the Post the pair are regulars at his eatery.

Spitzer's spokeswoman, Lisa Linden, reportedly did not deny his relationship with Smith saying they are "friends" and the he "holds her in high regard."

It is not clear if Spitzer has filed for divorce from his wife who stood by him during the prostitution scandal that lead to his resignation in 2008.

Spitzer was most recently back in the public eye after losing in the race for NYC comptroller.

Silda Spitzer, a former corporate lawyer now working in a private equity group, had reportedly planned to divorce Spitzer after the comptroller race.

Spitzer was reportedly "unhappy with his decision to reenter politics, thrusting their relationship back into the public spotlight."

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    When a New York City dry cleaners was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, the only item to survive was Nicole Pagliaro's wedding dress. But her name was lost to owner Hector Pacheco, who reopened after more than a year and in a new location. Pagliaro had brought the dress to him after her 2012 wedding. When the storm swamped and shuttered the Staten Island store, she assumed it was lost. But two weeks ago, she took a different route to work and spotted it in the window.
