Ex-wife of Spitzer receives divorce payout
NEW YORK - The ex-wife of former Governor Eliot Spitzer will receive $7.5 million as a part of
her divorce payout.
The New York Post is reporting that on top of that, Silda Wall Spitzer will also receive a
quarter million dollars a year for the rest of her life in maintenance and also gain part
ownership of their farm in Columbia County. The paper also says that she will also receive a
lifetime of health care, medical insurance, and staff members as well.
Many will remember when Silda stood by the disgraced former governor when he admitted to having relations with a prostitute and stepped down from his position in 2008.
