Eliot Spitzer's ex-wife Silda gets $7.5m in divorce deal
The Daily Mail ^ | 4-28-14 | Louise Boyle

Eliot Spitzer's ex-wife finally has something to smile about after the details of her multimillion-dollar divorce settlement from the disgraced 'Luv Guv' were revealed today.

Silda Wall Spitzer gets a $7.5million payout and to keep her luxury Fifth Avenue apartment overlooking Central Park in Manhattan as part of the deal.

The ex-New York governor's former wife, who grimly stood by him when his predilection for expensive call girls came to light in 2008, will also receive $240,000-a-year maintenance for life.

$7.5 million would buy a lot of hookers.

Looks like Spitzer got a better deal from the call girl.

No where near enough for having to bump ugly with him for years.

She’s a class act..and lucky for her she never got an STD from the perv.

He has daughters...2 or 3..and most of the hookers he was with were YOUNGER than his daughters. I suspect he’s ruined those relationships...

“Where does an HONEST public servant get that kind of cash?”

THAT is the proper question.

The annual taxes and upkeep would buy a nice house in Texas.

one more thing...he’s worth a lot more, and there’s even more to come from his parents estates..I suspect that the agreement includes an ironclad will that leaves his daughters taken care of..IOW, he can’t marry a sweet young thing..produce a few rug rats,,,and leave everything to the new wife and kiddies..

There are no honest public servants in New York. Look at blatant Marxist Bill de Blasio, a few weeks ago he had a press conference where he openly said he wanted to get rid of horse and carriage rides in Central park so his buddy could replace them with electric carriages. So in other words he’s getting rid of the horse and carriages so he can make money. Anybody say anything? Of course not! It’s perfectly OK for leftists to destroy an entire industry in tourism so they personally can make money off it.

The call girl was prettier and cheaper, if you don't mind STDs and fake affection. Perhaps he should have married for love instead of for political advancement and avoided both dangers.

Spitzer is such a jerk. What he did to the financial system still has not been repaired. I am happy for any pain Spitzer has to suffer!

Because he was a liberal, she should have anticipated his behavior?

Actually, $7.5 mil in NYC isn’t a lot of money. Spitzer’s net worth is around $50 mil.

Time to legalize prostitution. It’s a lot cheaper than getting married.

Spritzer comes from a very well-moneyed family. I believe the fortune is real-estate based.

There are no few honest public servants in New York anywhere.

Small edit for accuracy.

I don’t know much about the lady. I can speculate that she’s a bottom feeding white liberal. Even so, she deserves better than a creepy guy who rents women by the hour to act out his rape fantasies.

In this case you are correct. Common sense points toward she married him in the first place for his money. Reason being is that Spitzer is one ugly dude, with a personality to match. Silda is a pretty good looking woman. I do not buy for one second that this pretty girl saw some obnoxious gargoyle and said to herself “I want to date that guy.” What she saw was Spitzer standing on his daddy's real estate fortune, and then and only then did he become desirable to Silda.

The family is quite wealthy.
Bernie Spitzer (Eliot’s father) has a net worth well over a half bil.
This is pocket money for the Spitzer Crime Family.
