Client 9

New York governor Eliot Spitzer (Democrat) "has been caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month," according to the New York Times.

The same report says when Spitzer was an attorney general in 2004 he "spoke with revulsion and anger after announcing the arrest of 16 people for operating a high-end prostitution ring out of Staten Island."

So will this duplicitous ass resign?

Ummm ... it does not seem so. He just got done saying that politics is not about individuals but rather ideas and the public good ...!


So liberals like the governor will throw the precious individual out when caught with their pants down.


Spitzer is so tiresomely repugnant. I hope his wife of 21 years, Silda, leaves his sorry ass.

***Update(March 12)***
Spitzer resigns.

I honestly don't think he will resign.

There is a possibility however that his wife will stay with him "standing by her man" to save his pitiul ass from further disgrace.

But we all know that when behind closed doors, his ass probably couldn't take a sh** without asking her permission.

What say you?

Erica I hear he also has three daughters. The pain he has caused his family is greater than the disgrace he must suffer.

The folks who voted for his sorry ass must be quite disgusted.

He should resign. What he is facing is a federal charge because he brought a prostitute across state lines.

He is yet to be charged (as of this writing).

Be good now,

Hi, Ridwan and all.

What a bummer! There was a time when I thought Spitzer was a real champion of justice, taking down all the Wall Street crooks. That was my own naivete, I suppose.

Isn't it weird that a guy like that would be so open about his hypocrisy? I mean, he was sending text messages and emails, for God's sake!

I'll never understand it...

I'm not really disillusioned. Having experienced the Clinton administration, I know that everybody has dirt under their fingernails.

Spitzer can hang for all I care. But, you know, whoever takes his place will be just as bad.

Ridwan said...

Hello Dade.

Thanks for your comment.

Spitzer fell like Icarus hey. He was arrogant and cavalier about his power and got burnt.

Best wishes,

This is why I always say, they are all the same.

As for prostitution, it's a crime, but i'm sure the good ol' boys club will make sure that nothing too bad happens to him. It wouldn't U know, unless it was gay prostitution. Then you would be hearing about it day and night.

As for a resignation, why should he? I thought we impeached Bill Clinton for the whole Monica Lewinski deal, but he stayed in office, and everyone loves him now. This guy knows his way around the good ol' boys club. He will probably get a book deal, a movie deal and who knows, while the rest of us hard working decent people try to make it.

Hey Dione thanks for your comment. I watched him resign on CNN this afternoon.

I hope they get to laying charges now.

But I am not holding my breath.
