Never afraid of making a Mafioso styled threat, the Democrat former Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer now stands accused of screaming to Jamie Antolini, a New York Upper East Side restaurateur, that he would “get a f–king knife and stab you right in your f–king c–k!.”
Threats like this are nothing new for Mr Spitzer, as he formerly warned a rival: “I am a f–king steamroller” and just last week could be heard on a voicemail promising his former lover “a slow, painful death.”
48-year-old Mr Antolini says Mr Spitzer got upset when he overheard him singing the praises of his longtime nemesis, Home Depot founder Ken Langone.
As he was having dinner in Avra Madison Estiatorio, Mr Spitzer walked in and walked past his table as he and his friends were discussing Mr Langone in very friendly terms.
Upon hearing this, “he leaned into me, got right in my face, screaming, yelling, ‘I don’t know who the f–k you think you are! I’ll f–king have you killed!’” Mr Antolini claims.

The incident took place in the same week when Mr Spitzer’s former girlfriend, Miss Svetlana Travis Zakharova provided the press with a voicemail which she claims is from the former New York governor in which he says “You know what’s going to happen to you? You’re going to be f–king dead.”
“You’re going to die a slow painful death and your family is going to look at you and laugh because you’re a f–king bitch.”
