NY governor Eliot Spitzer ‘linked to prostitution’

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, a Democrat known for his moral crusading, has issued a public apology but stopped short of resigning amid reports he was involved in a high-end prostitution ring.

Mr Spitzer, a father of three who built his career fighting corporate corruption as New York state attorney general, issued only a brief statement after the reports broke, saying he had failed to live up to his own standards.

“I have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family, that violates my or any sense of right and wrong.

“I apologize first and most importantly to my family. I apologize to the public, whom I promised better,” he said. “I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family.”

The story broke after the New York Times website reported that he had told senior members of his administration that he was involved in a prostitution ring.

Lt. Gov. David Paterson Could Be Sworn In Within 48 Hours

Spitzer: ‘I Have Violated My Obligations To My Family’

Gov. Eliot Spitzer was not expected to continue as governor and may resign as soon as Monday night, sources told CBS 2 shortly after it was reported that he was linked to a prostitution ring.

Reliable sources initially told CBS 2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer that Lt. Gov. David Paterson could be handed the job as early as Monday night, though other sources say the process could take up to 48 hours.

State Assemblyman James Tedisco (R-Schenectady) told CBS 2 that he spoke with Paterson earlier Monday evening and that the two discussed Paterson taking on a new role of leadership, leading Tedisco to believe that action was “forthcoming.”

  6. I haven’t gone through all this, but thanks for covering it in the context it deserves.

    We in NY were counting on Eliot to straighten out Albany, probably the most corrupt capital in the USA. (you don’t even want to know…)

    Poor guy, it’s so immaterial to the political struggle in which he was embroiled, and nobody knew better than he what pitfalls to have avoided.

    He’s a powerful, smart official, and has done much good to straighten out some serious bad seeds in this state as Atty General.

    Wherever the interface between sex and power exists, certainly it does. Personally it is absolutely none of our bizness, but the ‘moralists’ of our corrupt state syndicate will drive out Eliot, he can’t possibly survive this, unfortunately. Things were already tough enough.

    The state of NY is basically a gangster organization run by right-wing thugs. It’s always been this way since long before Boss Tweed, dating back to the Dutch slaveholders and the English atrocities. Eliot could have brought a bit of clarity in the muck of endless corruption, graft and organized greed of Upstate NY. But so be it, back to biz as usual.

    Unfortunately with this silliness he’s done.
    Poor Eliot, he was one of the good ones, had the teeth and the testes to go up against gambinos and goppers, but this silly ‘faux pas’ will take him out.

    Ah Eliot, it’s too bad you were born into a land of protestant gangster hypocrisy, and not in a place like France, where this would be expected with a smile and wink, and an aversion of eyes to your private, unofficial matters.

    Knowing this hideous, corrupt section of Appalachia, I surmise that the age of Eliot is ended.
