Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, the infamous “Client 9” who resigned amid a prostitution scandal, was accused of choking a woman at The Plaza hotel, law enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday.

Police rushed to the hotel after Svetlana Travis, 25, used her cellphone to call 911 at about 8 p.m. Saturday to say she was having a breakdown and had cut her wrist, the sources said.

​The cops went up to the $1,000-a-night suite and Spitzer answered the door.

“Is there a problem?” they asked the disgraced ex-Love Guv.

“Everything’s fine. There’s no problem,” he responded, according to the sources.

The officers left, but called 911, telling an operator to phone Travis back. Travis told a dispatcher that she no longer needed help.

The cops went back anyway to check, although by then, she had left the room, the sources said.

After Spitzer opened the door a second time, the cops spied broken glass, bloodstains and clothing on the floor and started a search inside.

Travis reappeared, and the cops called EMS, which took her to Mount Sinai West Hospital, where she told staffers Spitzer had attacked her, sources said.
