(AP) Scandal-scarred ex-New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer is digging into his pockets to finance his bid to become New York City comptroller. New information shows those pockets are deep.

Rival and fellow Democrat Scott Stringer released five years of his tax returns Tuesday.

Spitzer declined to do likewise. But his campaign says he and his wife made about $3.8 million in 2011 and $4.3 million last year.

Spitzer resigned as governor after being identified as an escort service client. He's involved in his family's real estate business and hosted TV programs.

Stringer's returns show he and his wife made about $189,000 a year since 2008, mainly from his $160,000-a-year salary as Manhattan borough president.

Politicians aren't required to release their tax returns, but many do.

Spitzer's campaign says he won't because his returns include private income information about business partnerships.
