Scott Stringer and Eliot Spitzerwill face off today in a debate of the race for city comptroller.

The Spitzer campaign announced they will be maintaining a "rapid response website" to "fact check" everything Stringer says during the debate, citing his "volume of false attacks" as a concern.

The debate can be watched here. The tumblr is here.

Within the first 10 minutes of the debate, Stringer noted that Spitzer was set to face money-laundering charges when he was caught soliciting prostitutes as governor.

Spitzer responded by calling Stringer's criticism "ad hominem attacks."

Stringer's spokeswoman Audrey Gelman is also live-tweeting the debate herewith responses to Spitzer's claims. Spitzer's spokesman Hari Sevugan is doing the same.

Sevugan recently came under fire for a snarky tweet about Gelman.
