The Effing Steamroller Got Crushed, He Needs to Resign


In the end, it was Spitzer's own doing that brought him down.

The man who made a once promising political career out of his defeating corruption on Wall Street, who as Attorney General was coined "Sheriff of Wall Street", named "Crusader of the Year" by TIME magazine and "Eliot Ness" by major tabloids and roared into the Governor's office with an unprecedented mandate for reform is being humbled by his own short comings and lack of self control for the very crime that he sought out and prosecuted (read carefully, presecuted not prostituted) people.

Watching his news conference, he has not lost his ego, but if you listened closely, "I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family." it sounds like he is going to resign.

The Governor would be well advised to step aside, he was marginally effective after the Troop scandal, he will be totally ineffective as Governor going forward from this point.

LATER ADD:
One of the public appearances Spitzer cancelled today was a speech to the Family Planning Advocates, imagine the possibilities of that speech.

MORE:
Here is an excerpt from his inaugural speech.
"Every policy, every action and every decision we make in this administration will further two overarching objectives: We must transform our government so that it is as ethical and wise as all of New York, and we must rebuild our economy so that it is ready to compete on the global stage in the next century".

I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF:
What do you think he got his wife for Valentine's Day, when he returned from that Washington DC trip?

Many hearts are broken because of this situation caused by one man. The people that stood behind him with the dreams of making New York a better place should still stand tall and be proud. The people of NNY that were apart of this progressive time in NY wanting only good things for all us still deserve only respect from us. We're proud of you.
