NEW YORK (AP) - Voters were not in a forgiving mood for two brash New Yorkers whose careers were shattered by sex scandals.
With 96 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday night, Anthony Weiner was far behind in the city's Democratic mayoral primary, with about 5 percent of the vote.
Eliot Spitzer lost the primary contest for city comptroller to Scott Stringer, the Manhattan borough president. Stringer took 52 percent of the vote to Spitzer's 48 percent.
Weiner quit Congress in 2011 after sending lewd messages and pictures to women. And Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 after having sex with prostitutes.
A onetime front-runner, Weiner was polling in fourth place as primary day arrived. His campaign all but collapsed after he was caught sexting again.
