Spitzer Swallows...

...his pride and resigns.

Locally, I've seen a lot of comments defending him, arguing "what goes on between two consenting adults..." or "that's between him and his wife." The problem, people, is not that he cheated on his wife (well, I guess that's her problem) but that he was New York's attorney general and prostitution is illegal. Do I really need to point out the difference between a guy who screws around on his wife and a guy who makes his bones breaking up prostitution rings only to later get caught with his hand in the same nookie jar?

Plus, $1000 an hour??? That gives a whole new meaning to the term "political pork."

  1. That's just the tip of the iceberg. He may also have committed a few federal felonies along the way. But it was all for a good cause. :-)

    BTW, the idea of trusting a politician who can't even be trusted by their spouse is sort of, shall we say, counterintuitive.
