NEW YORK (CBS) ¯ Gov. Eliot Spitzer was not expected to continue as governor and may resign by Monday evening, sources told CBS 2, after it was reported that he was linked to a prostitution ring.
Reliable sources told CBS 2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer that Lt. Gov. David Paterson could be sworn in as governor as early as 7 p.m. Monday.

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz was also forming a favorable impression of Spitzer at approximately this time and recently said of him: "He has a creative and innovative mind, and he always wants to do what's right."

“I am a John American”
This may be the most spectacular fall of a politician in my lifetime. Unbelievable!
Who you going to call!
AL AND JESSE to the rescuse........
I know this won’t fit with your post but you will get it. “If only politicians were allowed to marry...”
So are all the crisis pregnancy centers that he tried to shut down for giving out over-the-counter pregnancy tests. So am I. Burn, baby, burn!
Just did a Google search:
and the stories are all over the place...resigns, expected to resign, may resign, does not resign, likely to resign, should resign...
CULTURE OF CORRUPTION!!!
DEMOCRATS!!! DEMOCRATS!!! DEMOCRATS!!!
My thoughts exactly. I know where my priorities lie.
1) Find out what the women looked like who could charge that much.
2) Find out more about this Spitzer dude’s hypocritical past fighting so-called “sex trafficking”.
If you do a Google search for Feminism and Sex Trafficking, you will find that both the left wing and non-libertarians on the right define it as all prostitution, no matter how voluntary, that involves crossing state or national boundaries.
They only spice up their propaganda by mentioning the much rarer cases where the women are doing things against their will (for instance, Condi Rice said something about 40,000 slaves being transported to Germany for the World Cup and the Germans ended up stopping only one van with 5 Polish women who wanted to do what they were planning to do).
I was in Turkey last week which is supposed to be the slave trading capital of the world. Tons of young women are working as prostitutes, but they seem to all have cell phones and designer clothes.
Spitzer deserves to fry because of his hypocrisy in fighting “sex trafficking” while planning to cheat on his wife. Why don’t both liberal and conservative politicians finally realize that men should have some backbone and be honest about what they want, instead of making things illegal because they fear that women voters might not like it if they don’t.
Of course, Marc Rudov is about to appear on Bill OReilly with comments of his own on how great the Spitzer marriage might have been (I have no comment or knowledge on that subject).
Back to the $5500 prostitutes: I was in Hamburg last week on business where I entered, out of curiousity, the most elite gentleman’s club in all of Germany.
I have never seen such attractive prostitutes in my life. But even with the low dollar, they were only $375 per hour.
I won’t cheat on my woman however. I chose properly unlike guys like Spitzer and Bill Clinton who probably got roped into marrying a feminist who could help them get elected as a Democrat.
They repoted a cost of 4,300 for his gal..
Must be very talented!
“Married with 3 daughters”.
My heart breaks for his wife and the girls.
Go ahead GOP, call for an investigation! The Democrat’s are hiding something.
It certainly sounds like it.
I hope he wasn’t SMOKING In that whorehouse!
It means they will make a hero of him.
Now, here’s a job opening for Slick Willie.
But if we go back and count it up..........It's not close.
Compare $4300 in Washington DC with $375 in Hamburg, Germany. The $375 is paid by German politicians and other celebrities who use the back entrance of the place I was writing about above.
It is not the physical attractiveness of the woman that is causing the price rise.
It is the fact that Americans are so politically wound up about “sex trafficking” and American male politicians have been bending over backwards to make sure men who “partake” (and men in general) are made to sound like the most evil beings on Earth.
The price difference is the price of hypocrisy.
That $3925 price difference was what Spitzer and his buddies thought would buy them “discretion” in a society where men are cut zero slack.
I want to see Spitzer put behind federal bars for “sex trafficking”.
At least until a federal judge finally admits that “sex trafficking” should be defined properly as “against the will of the prostitute” or transport of a minor across state lines for sexual purposes.
And at least until the feds admit that prostitution is a state level crime and not a federal matter.
I want this to stay in the news until then.
“Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been linked to a prostitution ring”
This is so good that it just HAS to be fattening!
No way can Spitzer sell this is strictly a personal..He broke the law...
Clinton certainly brazened through..
We'll see if he really is going to resign..Spitzer once prosecuted prostitution rings..was a self proclaimed steamroller to clean up the state..HYPOCRISY
There is a federal law called the Mann Act that prohibits transporting anyone across state lines for immoral purposes. That is what Spitzer will be accused of violating. He arranged and paid for a New York hooker to go to Washington D.C. to have sex with him. Because he paid for her transportation he is subject to prosecution AND IMPRISONMENT under the Mann Act. This dumbass was editor of the Harvard Law Review, deputy Manhattan D.A., and a two-term state Attorney General! You would think he would know about the Mann Act and know better than to pay for the woman’s train ticket!
hmmm, interesting details.
“Gov. Eliot Spitzer was not expected to continue as governor and may resign by Monday evening, sources told CBS 2, after it was reported that he was linked to a prostitution ring.”
OMG, was he pimping out (insert favorite object of Democrat corruption here)?
“I.e., Barak Obama...?”
And Clinton’s liasons with Monica were no less bad.
It’s perhaps to his credit that he resigns over this, if it is a personal scandal and not a corruption one,
I thought only Republicans did that.
Only reason it is federal is that interstate lines were crossed to commit the crime.
We’ll see..Dims seem to squirm out of a lot!
I doubt it. He’ll try to hang on. His wife, however, may well get half of his billion dollar fortune in the divorce. I feel bad for her and the kids.
whoops. that image didn’t post correctly.
Spitzer would make an excellent U.S. Senator from NY, or maybe a running mate for HRC or Barack Hussein Usama.
As I said upon hearing this, “Couldn’t Happen to a better thug”.
Rest assured, this type of abomination is a line item on a Democrat’s resume, and it doesnt just happen in NY.
Murder is a crime, whether or not any particular government recognizes it.
I was wondering why the Times would out a Democrat. Hillary’s orders?
Anyone think he might not resign and get the usual Democrat pass?
I don’t think so. I think he’s ruffled some feathers somewhere down the line and they want him out of the picture.
Just enough to get you tired and make you stop griping about 'em.
Then again, that may take a while.
Come on, lighten up. The mods are doing a fine job. They'll delete them if they don't want them.
Your post is very accurate:
1. He has NOT been indicted. He was apparently “mentioned” in some sealed “informational papers”, and it seems that some people automatically thought that meant “indicted”.
2. Peter King is right, too... Spitzer’s ONLY coin was his apparent “holier than every other politician”. Between the governorship bungles made earlier this year, and now this, it is clear to everyone that he’s just “politics as usual”.
3. Demodogs for the most part will forgive him, even those who are now claiming “if true, he has to resign.” BS. I heard so many of those fools saying that during the ‘Toon’s years, and not one of them ended up calling for his resignation, as Republicans did during Nixon.
Right now, there are many politicians in NYS who are saying the compulsory “if true, he should resign”, “I’m very disappointed”, “this reflects badly on all of us, but that is really not true: it was only his behavior” “though you are disappointed, you have to remember that the principles of the Demodog party haven’t changed”
I wish that all of them would resign.
Having had some problems with access due to this bandwidth burn today, I am obligated to mention the situation.
Dog thanks for that investigation...we could have pulled our money together perhaps....LOL
This is so rich.....
I’m sure they’ll downplay his role in prosecuting others for this very crime. In fact, they’ll spin and say he really only went after the bosses.
If a republican did this, they’d be all over him cheating on his wife and calling him out for sayng this behavior is immorral.
The big thing is Spitzer put people in Jail for such behvior. So if the MSM gives him a pass (which they’ll try their best to do so) it will be obvious to nearly most everyone else regardless of their spin.
I first said....I cant believe someone is going to make Mario Cuomo look better.....
What is the link of the down site? I wonder if the wayback machine captured it?
