Eliot Spitzer has gone through a different tradition this Christmas as he spent the holiday with his new girlfriend’s family just one day after announcing that he is getting a divorce.
The disgraced former governor’s affair with his press secretary was unveiled Monday after photos showed him following Lis Smith into her SoHo apartment late at night and leaving the next morning on two different dates last week.
Today, the couple was much more willing to be seen together as they arrived at Ms Smith’s mother’s house in the same SUV on Wednesday for Christmas celebrations in Bronxville.
Ms Smith, who currently works on incoming mayor Bill de Blasio’s press team, has not made any public statements since the news of the affair came out, instead letting her colleagues speak out on her behalf, singing her praises.
On the trip to her mother’s house in the suburbs, she let her dress do the talking: even though it was in the high 20s and low 30s, the chill didn’t stop the 31-year-old from wearing a form-fitting black and tan sleeveless dress with bare legs and heels, as The New York Daily News showed.
