It’s bad enough that Eliot Spitzer was a frequenter of hookers, though at $5,500 an hour the correct term is call girl, and the he is a shining hypocrite who betrayed his wife and his office. But he also betrayed his friend and political contributor, George Fox.
Mr. Fox, a big Democrat donor, released a very generous statement about Spitzer today, more generous than we would’ve been, but such is politics. Don’t look for the two of them having lunch any time soon.
And today there is talk about impeachment hearings regarding this mess. Spitzer is probably holding on to his office as a bargaining chip to avoid charges, but there is no doubt that he has to go.
By the way, the picture is from the Governor’s press conference yesterday with his wife. She looks in shock, which could be the only possible explanation for her appearance there.
