NEW YORK (AP) Eliot Spitzer says the prostitution scandal that cost him the New York governor's office revealed a flaw in his personality.

Spitzer told "Good Day New York" Tuesday that the incident showed "a flaw in my logic, my behavior."

The Democrat spoke a day after launching an effort to enter the city comptroller's race.

He told the Fox channel that he's "thought deeply" about the scandal. He says he's hopefully learned a great deal.

He proclaimed that he's "a different person" than he was five years ago.

Pressed further about his judgment, Spitzer said he was not on TV to talk about his private life.

He said he held himself accountable when he resigned as governor.
