Spitzer’s Shame
Posted by: Dale Franks on Tuesday, March 11, 2008

I don't really have much to say about Gov. Spitzer's current bimbo explosion, in terms of the politics, or even sheer, well-deserved comeuppance it represents for the holier-than-thou SOB.

I will say two things, however.

First, Gov. Spitzer ran his gubernatorial campaign under the slogan of "Bringing Passion Back" to Albany. There's now little doubt that he did just that.

Second, I am completely disgusted by the spectacle of him dragging his wife out to stand next to him while he asks for the public's understanding for his little peccadilloes. I would never, ever publicly humiliate my wife or loved ones by subjecting them to such a public spectacle. I'd at least be enough of man to stand up there alone while I faced the public.

I'd also have the good grace to resign, too.

UPDATE: Then there's this:
With pressure mounting on Gov. Eliot Spitzer to resign over a call-girl scandal, investigators said Tuesday he was clearly a repeat customer who spent tens of thousands of dollars — perhaps as much as $80,000 — with the high-priced prostitution service over an extended period of time.
Wow. I'd love to have $80,000 to spend on hookers. Not that I'd actually do it, you understand. I'd just like to be in a position to have the option.

Personally, I find Spitzer’s extra-martial activities an indicator of his poor judgment - not for the act itself, but rather for getting caught at it.

Given his past experiences with running good men and companies through the mud for doing much less, how sloppy did he think he could be? 4 Grand per for sex and he couldn’t buy a box of disposable cell phones?

While one could say that at least Clinton didn’t pay for sex.

But also one could just as easily say, at least Spitzer didn’t lie about it.

80k?
Now why do I get the feeling it wasn’t his money?
I smell something burning, here.

Once again, we see that a vehement moralizer is secretly a libertarian, at least in regards to his own rights.

It’s always other people’s freedom that needs to be curtailed.

Hear, hear. And not just Spitzer, but any of the recently-disgraced politicians. I’ve also never understood why the wives agree to go up there, knowing full well that their presence is nothing more than a means to protecting the philanderer’s future political prospects, but whatever. It’s their lives.

Heh. Amen, brother.

I agree 100% that dragging his wife out there is disgusting yet we see it time and time again. As another that is in no position to drop $80k on hookers...I gotta ask...WHAT in the hell do you get for $5,500/hr??. Is that mostly "hush" monies??.I cannot grasp a $5,500 romp, no matter what.

I am with you markm, even if I was filthy rich I cannot see paying $5500 on poontang, not when I can get a cute college coed a little help with her tuition for about one tenth of that. (not that I have ever done such a thing you understand).

On the other hand, (If I was not happily married,) It would be kinda nice to rent a hot woman for a fun trip on a long weekend, I might pay a lot for that.

So today I see that this goes back 10 years, including the time Spitzer was NY AG.

Just how many cases brought by NY AG Spitzer are now going to go up for appeal ?

He must resign. He must go to jail. This should include jail time, resignation or no resignation. Frankly, they should consider the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act with this scum.

We are talking corruption at the top of law enforcement in New York for the last 10 years. This is much different that Vitter, Folley or Studds.

Ok, from McQ’s post "the mood in the Spitzer home was tense, with the governor’s wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, recommending that he not step down"

I take back what I said above. His wife wants to be along for the ride then so be it. Now, i’m left feeling bad for the kids...until they come out in favor of daddy keeping his gig.

For a trip...I’m still not there yet, but for a road romp trip?. I don’t think I could get past the odometer reading of her nibbly bits. Pitwewy.

Which is why you really shouldn’t nibble those bits. Seriously, are you high?

You’re not even supposed to KISS the whore, let alone do THAT!

*funny story, a buddy of mine was LONG long ago a dental assistant in the navy. Guy came in a bit after they had ported in some philipine island with some form of VD... IN HIS THROAT! *shudders violently**

For that kind of money, I’d go knock down another cool guitar, and walk out of some jam-session club with the sweetest bird in the place and far more than enough to medicate the hangover.
