Ok, So, It Looks Like Eliot Spitzer Might Like To Party

We couldn't care less about what consenting adults do at night behind closed doors.

That's between them, their wife/husband/family and their God. It isn't any of our business.

And yes, we even feel the same way when it comes to elected officials. As long as their nighttime behavior doesn't affect their day job.

Unfortunately for Mr. Spitzer, preliminary reports seem to paint him as a hypocrite. Per the New York Times:

Mr. Spitzer gained national attention when he served as attorney general with his relentless pursuit of Wall Street wrongdoing. As attorney general, he also had prosecuted at least two prostitution rings as head of the state’s organized crime task force.

In one such case in 2004, Mr. Spitzer spoke with revulsion and anger after announcing the arrest of 16 people for operating a high-end prostitution ring out of Staten Island.

“”This was a sophisticated and lucrative operation with a multitiered management structure,” Mr. Spitzer said at the time. ”It was, however, nothing more than a prostitution ring.”
We don't like hypocrites. At all.

And politicians who live by waging moral war oftentimes die by moral war.

But do people really believe that a little screwing around by some Governor deserves roadblock coverage? Is anyone else aware that when the next President takes office that this country will be $10 trillion in debt?


Get a hold of yourself people.
