    NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer is now being linked to a prostitution ring. (Link)

    Not long ago I seem to recall people were talking up Spitzer as a possible Presidential candidate in '12, '16, or later. Oh well.

    Stephen Spruiell at NRO's The Corner says Fox News is reporting that he has been formally indicted and will shortly resign as governor. (Don't have a TV handy so I can't confirm.)

    EDIT: Not an indictment, just a complain. An indictment may still follow, it just hasn't happened yet.

    Ha ha haaaaaa!
    That makes me laugh.
    Not because he's a liberal and I'm a conservative, but more because of the hypocrisy of the thing. He was supposed to be this big honcho who took on the mob and was big into getting rid of corruption...

    I'm still laughing! HAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

    well If Fox news is reporting it...lol

    thing that makes me more mad is I cant afford those ladys, the Free market needs to bring the cost down on those hookers so us common folk can get some :)

    At least unlike the Republican Versions of these things...does not sound like he was screwing men lol

    In any case, its NY does not effect me, but he better just stop beating around the bush and resign.

    Yet more proof: the purer someone tries to paint him/herself, the more lilely they are human scum.

    Because republicans don't have a tendency to proclaim family values, then go cottaging in a public toilet.

    Do we have to bring that up again? Didn't we beat the whole "Larry Craig Looking For Gay Sex In Toilet!" thing to death already?

    I agree there are many Republican "family Values" Leaders, and Right Wing Christan Leaders with gay hookers , Meth and other such things we can pick from as well.

    Uh, well, I'd think the people who pass and enforce laws ought to at least make a token effort to respect them. Left or right I don't care; I said Vitter should resign back when he got busted and I say Spitzer should do the same.

    I heard about this as well. While I am generally of the school that thinks less focus on the personal lives of politicians especially thier sex lives is needed. My understanding is that he wasnt the target of this investigation, he stepped into it on accident while there was already an investigation going on concerning the prostitution ring.
    What bugs me the most is the hypocracy concerning his previous actions. While I think he should resign not because he is a hypocrit, lets be real and know that all politicians are hypocrits by nature. He should resign because he needs to focus his efforts on mending fences with his family and let someone else focus on running NY.

    To me it also says something about loyalty, Loyalty is something I put alot of stock in, and if cant even be loyal to your wife ( with hookers no less) why should I expect more from you?

    that and the Hypocracy is amazing...thats one reason cops piss me off alot.

    I think in all the times that we have crossed paths on this board I actually agree with you. Also, I just had access to cable news for the first time in several weeks and it appears someone at the IRS got wind of this under a "suspicious transaction" and recognizing the name forwarded it on to the FBI.
    I dont know if it is politically motivated or not yet. That is what really bugs me the most in any of these scandals is the rampant and unnecessary partisanship.
