You would think that for $5,500/hour—that's Goldman Sachs ex-wife type of money—they could have paid the appropriate bribes to the Fed officials to at least get warning about the wiretap before it came.



Just remember, Jesus cavorted with hookers.

This is at best a three week story, if Spitzer is an idiot, and he's not.

Well, I mean, he did get caught, but I think this part he can handle.

"I'm sorry."


A few well-chosen religious appearances (Passover's coming up soon, there must be SOME holiday ahead of that to use!)

Finally, get the fucking budget passed on time, and this is history.


your title is hilarious - I just guffawed really loud and woke my old cat - which is loud cause this cat is DEAF.


Won't he have bigger legal fish to fry other than just saying, "I'm sorry"? It's not like he merely had an affair, he paid and he paid to have women or a woman cross state lines.


I agree with Jennifer. This is bigger than having an affair, which never interests me, and it's bigger even that simply consorting with hookers, which icks me out but doesn't usually affect whether I think a politician can do his job.

The fact that Spitzer coasted into Albany on an overwhelming wave of moral superiority, that he has vigorously prosecuted prostitution rings in the past, adds a level of hypocrisy and betrayal that I don't think he can surmount. He has no political capital left; he will be unable to govern.

It's as big a shock to me as there can be, but I, too, think he should resign.

Exiled in New Jersey

I have always had the theory to never elect a prosecutor to an executive job: either they think the law does not exist for them, or they surround themselves with thugs and others who think the same way.


Won't he have bigger legal fish to fry other than just saying, "I'm sorry"?

Frankly, no, he won't.
