Mr. and Mrs. Elliot Spitzer
Spitzer is governor of NY.
The Take Down.
Things must have been really rough at home. Must be why Elliot felt compelled or entitled to pursue a tryst with a "petite pretty brunette".
Perhaps Elliot felt trapped. Unfulfilled. But people in politics never seem to appreciate irony.
Strangely enough it couldn't have happened to a nicer, more deserving guy.
Spitzer has a history of misusing his power, for example when he tried to use State Police Travel records to embarass the Republican Senate Majority Leader. The matter was investigated and Spitzer fired someone and made this statement:
I will not tolerate this behavior,", "ethics and accountability must and will remain rigorous in my administration," and that "I have always stated that I want ethics and integrity to be the hallmarks of my administration. That is why I requested that the State Inspector General review the allegations with respect to my office, and that is why we have fully cooperated with both inquiries."[52
In spite of a press conference this afternoon Mr. "Ethics and Integrity" Spitzer has not resigned because Democrats don't resign, even when impeached.
New Yorkers sure know how to pick 'em.
