(Newser) – Silda Wall Spitzer, liberated from the constraints of being a politician's wife, has gone to work for a Manhattan hedge fund, New York magazine reports. A former corporate attorney, Silda will be recruiting investors for Metropolitan Capital Advisors, run by the wife of a long-time Spitzer friend and supporter. Meanwhile, Eliot may write a book. No, it won’t be a tell-all; he plans to expand his recent Washington Post op-ed offering economic advice to Barack Obama’s administration.
