Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer says he's coming back to politics.
He tells the New York Times he's going to run for New York City comptroller.
In an interview Sunday, Spitzer says he's planning to start collecting the signatures he needs starting Monday.
Candidates for citywide offices like comptroller need 3,750 signatures from registered voters in their party by Thursday.
Spitzer, a Democrat, stepped down from the governor's office in 2008 over a prostitution scandal.
Spitzer tells the Times he hopes city voters will be willing to give him a chance.
