This is a little weird when you think about it. When former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer tied the knot with Silda Alice Wall, his newly outed love interest Lis Smith was just five years old.

The age difference between Spitzer and Smith, who is Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio‘s flack, is 23 years. He’s 54. She’s 31.

Spitzer and Silda married in 1987. Silda is 55.

A story this morning in the New York Post reports that the reason Spitzer and Smith were able to go unnoticed until now was that observers thought she was his daughter. At least according to the math, it all adds up.

The horrible part about the story is that the sources who dished to Page 6 actually received a free meal and relationship advice from Spitzer and Smith. No doubt they’re regretting that random act of kindness.
