NEW YORK, July 26 (UPI) -- Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, a candidate for New York City comptroller, shrugged off questions about rumors his wife will divorce him after the election.

Citing sources it did not identify, the New York Post reported Silda Spitzer has told friends she plans to divorce her husband after his current election campaign, and will not appear with him at campaign events.

Eliot Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 after admitting he had routinely hired prostitutes.

"Silda is saying she is going to wait until this is all over. She has been telling friends, 'This is too hard. This is too rough,'" a source said.

"Silda is telling her female friends that she is done with him. She will file for divorce after the election," a second source said.

"I think it's fair to say I'm running for office," Eliot Spitzer said at a campaign stop Thursday. "No other member of my family is running for office. And I think the public is going to judge me, not who else is with me or not with me. She's got a career. There are other things I think the public appreciates -- I'm out here fighting every day for them."

The Post reported the couple had been living apart in May.
