ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Former New York governors Eliot Spitzer and David Paterson have closed their campaign accounts, signaling no quick returns to politics.
Spitzer, whose CNN news program was recently canceled, turned over much of his remaining $182,305 to education foundations. They include his alma maters, with $25,000 going to Harvard Law School, $50,000 to Harvard College and $25,000 to Horace Mann School.
Paterson, who succeeded Spitzer in 2008 after his resignation amid a prostitution scandal, spent much of his remaining $218,166 to pay off campaign bills.
Paterson spent $105,600 to pay off the remaining lease on campaign space in Manhattan. He also paid $86,000 in legal fees to defend himself against ethics charges over free New York Yankees tickets he obtained for the 2009 World Series.
