Surprise, surprise! Eliot Spitzer still can’t keep it in his pants.
According to Page Six reports:
Bill de Blasio’s communications director is shacking up with her married, former boss — Eliot Spitzer.
Lis Smith, 31, who was hired by the mayor-elect in September as his top spokesperson, has been hosting the hooker-happy former governor at her SoHo pad, The Post has learned.
Spitzer, 54, twice spent the night at Smith’s apartment building last week, showing up late in the evening, once taking her for a romantic dinner and both times slipping out of her building at dawn, a Post reporter observed.
On Wednesday, Spitzer pulled up in a cab a couple doors down from Smith’s five-floor walkup around 10 pm, wearing jeans, sneakers, white hoodie and a grin on his face as he walked to the building and rang the bell.
He was buzzed up — and didn’t emerge again until 5:45 am. With bags under his eyes, he stopped briefly on Smith’s stoop to look at a newspaper that had been delivered before bolting through the pre-dawn darkness to catch a cab near Prince Street.
Smith, a tall, dark-haired beauty, emerged around noon smiling and looking fresh in a hot-pink puffer jacket.
That night, Spitzer showed up again, dapper in a long black overcoat and dress shoes as he walked to her door from Prince Street around 10 pm.
He went in, and emerged an hour later with Smith, both of them heading to a cozy French restaurant.
Seated at a back table, the pair held hands as they enjoyed a candlelit dinner. The manager described them as regulars who “have had almost everything on the menu by now. They come here that often.”
“The first time I saw Spitzer, I didn’t know if he was Eliot Spitzer or Anthony Weiner. Those two are like the same exact guy,” the manager said, referring to the city’s other sex-crazed, ex-pol.
After leaving the eatery around 12:30 am, Smith gave Spitzer a flirtatious look over her shoulder before the couple headed back to her walk-up.
Spitzer took off early in the morning. Smith left hours later, chatting on her cell phone, around 11.
Damn, these two are really bold huh?
And apparently it’s suspected the two have been carrying on for quite some time…
The Bronxville native was first hired by Spitzer as a spokeswoman in July, during his failed primary run for comptroller against Scott Stringer.
Her hiring came at the same time sources revealed to The Post that long-suffering wife Silda Spitzer wanted a divorce, and while Spitzer was angrily dodging questions about a rumored new mistress.
The Post’s Page Six had earlier reported that Spitzer moved out of his and Silda’s Fifth Avenue apartment.
Spitzer stepped down after being revealed as “Client-9” of the Emperors Club VIP, a high-priced hooker ring.
Smith joined Team De Blasio in September, during the primary, and still works for the mayor-elect. It is not clear if she will follow him to City Hall when he takes office in January.
The Dartmouth grad apparently has a thing for bad boys, dating former Missouri pol Jeff Smith from 2005 to 2009, before he was locked up in the federal pen for obstruction after a probe of the state’s 2004 election.
Do you think De Blasio should keep her on?
We’re wondering if Spitzer will divorce his wife for her. Apparently her family are fans of the disgraced politician:
Meanwhile, Lis Smith’s family seems to approve of the much older Spitzer.
When Spitzer’s CNN show was canceled in July 2011, Smith’s mom — travel writer and retired lawyer Adrienne Smith — tweeted:
“Sorry Spitzer’s gig ending on CNN. Most intelligent commentary on TV. Even better than Rachel. Hope he finds another home.’’
Her daughter retweeted the comment, with the response, “You tell em, Mom.’’
Spitzer didn’t comment. His spokeswoman, Lisa Linden, didn’t deny his relationship with Smith.
“Lis Smith is a friend of Eliot’s and he holds her in high regard,” Linden said.
Be careful girl, don’t think he won’t do to you what he’s already done to his wife!
