New York, June 29 (ANI): Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer says that he is not similar to South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford.

Spitzer had resigned in March last year, after it was reported that he was a client of a prostitution ring under investigation by the federal government.

On the other hand, on June 24, 2009, Sanford resigned as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, when it was revealed he was in an extramarital affair with an Argentinian, Maria Belen Chapur.

And thus, at a lunch meeting with LMDC executive director Avi Schick at Solo in the Sony Building on Madison, Spitzer was overheard as saying that there's a huge difference in what he did and what Sanford has done.

"I didn't fall in love with any of them," the New York Post quoted him as telling Schick.

Besides, Spitzer didn't use any taxpayer money on his trysts, while Sanford is reimbursing the state about 12,000 dollars for travel expenses to Buenos Aires. (ANI)
