Spitzer now writing for Slate

December 3, 2008 6:09:06 PM PST
Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer is back in the media, this time as a member of the Fourth Estate. The online magazine Slate on Wednesday evening quietly posted Spitzer's first column, headlined "Too Big Not To Fail." It argued against costly economic government bailouts to huge financial institutions.

Jacob Weinberg, the editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, owned by the Washington Post Co., said in a telephone interview that the twice-monthly column will focus on the financial crisis, regulation and government.

Spitzer resigned earlier this year after getting caught in a call-girl scandal. Last month, federal prosecutors announced they would not bring criminal charges against Spitzer.
