Another politician...

...With the soul of a weasel. It'd be tempting to be smug about this because of the (D) following his name, but there are plenty of guys with an (R) that are just as bad.
Personally, I don't think prostitution should be a crime, but right at this moment it is, and having made a career out of prosecuting such crimes, one would think Spitzer would have had more sense. Talk about being hoisted on your own petard.
By all accounts this guy is pretty arrogant, so maybe he felt that the laws he enforced just didn't apply to him... or maybe its just New York politics as usual.
I'm not very impressed by the "coming clean" press conference. We'd not be seeing it at all if he hadn't been caught - that's his only real regret. Dragging his wife out there for "support" turns my stomach - probably turns hers too, unless she's a complete doormat. Lady! Your guy's been banging hookers for who knows how long! What the hell are you doing standing by his side! He's made a complete mockery of his marriage, his family and his vows. That dude's word is WORTHLESS.

At $5500 per hour I wonder how much of his families fortune he has squandered..

Sheesh what a douchebag. He should have just quietly gone away.

No doubt. He doesn't even have the honor to stand down.

He's a tool. Anyone with that kind of power who has to go to a hooker to get some strange isn't worth voting for. And no, it shouldn't be illegal.

He's toast, and I agree with FHB, but he sold off his own wife and family cheaply at the end of his ying-yang..

I agree that it shouldn't be illegal.
Maybe he thought it should only be illegal for the bottomfeeding sort that markets for the price of a crackrock. Yeah, he's a class act: low class.
And what a bastard to put his wife through that. Mortifying. She's probably incapacitated by some stage of psychosis, though. At some point, she'll blow and tear him a new one.
