During Spitler's 1998 AG campaign, he indignantly denied allegations by his GOP opponent, Dennis Vacco (Vacco is a top-notch pro-life conservative), that Spitler's wealthy father had provided millions in loans to his AG campaign. Candidate Spitzer insisted he was using only his own money (family members are limited by law to $110,000 in total contributions) and accused Vacco of "smearing" his father.

Not until he'd actually taken office did Spitzer admit that Dennis Vacco had been correct, after all. In fact, it turned out Spitzer, despite earlier denials, had done the exact same thing during his unsuccessful 1994 run for AG.

If these are charitible foundations; why aren’t they giving more? Isn’t that what they are for. Or are they tax dodges so the family can hide behind it and spend the money on not so charitible donations; such as family members campaigns for political office. Some fair and balanced, right?????

Amazing that the great state of NY is doing nothing about their criminal governor.

Ooops! I forgot that he was a democRat and there is no controlling legal authority when Rats commit crimes.

Eliot Spitzer, as Attorney General denied any tactical errors, later claimed a decisive victory in the war against capitalist prosperity. “Money is offensive to my constituents who can’t make money themselves and instead have to beg for it in government offices,” he said later at a Midtown press conference. “We must clean our streets from the rich corporate scum that’s been infesting them. Nobody earning over a hundred thousand a year is innocent. Let’s all work together to make our city safe again for the homeless to frolic without the fear of being offended by tactless display of prosperity,” he finished to a standing ovation from an audience of mainstream media reporters.

Some retrogrades would call Spitzer an “extortionist” who threatens a corporation with a phony lawsuit that would cost them millions in legal fees and damage control. They “appease the beast” with a settlement hoping he would go away. But every corporate payoff makes the beast stronger and his appetite bigger. He then threatens their neighbor, and then the next neighbor - until the entire block on Wall Street is paying ransom, and then the next block, and so on. He learned it from the Unions who in their turn learned it from the Sicilian Mafia.
