Eliot Spitzer, "Zali"?

NYDailynews: Gubernatorial candidate Eliot Spitzer got his signals mixed yesterday when he made a shiva call to only one of the feuding sons of late Satmar Grand Rebbe Moses Teitelbaum. Spitzer's representatives said the state attorney general wasn't trying to slight Aron Teitelbaum - he just didn't realize the rabbi was in Brooklyn....... Spitzer visited Zalmen Teitelbaum at his Williamsburg home yesterday. But he didn't stop to see Aron, who is based in Orange County, but was at his own Williamsburg residence yesterday. Sen. Chuck Schumer and City Controller William Thompson visited both brothers yesterday. "Eliot paid his respects to the great work and leadership of the deceased grand rabbi," said Spitzer aide Ryan Toohey. "This was not a political event, and no greater meaning should be read into it." Last night, Spitzer's representatives were scrambling to set up a shiva call to Aron Teitelbaum. The shiva period of mourning for the late grand rebbe, who died last Monday, ends at 10 a.m. today.
