No question mark. Greta Van Susteren says she's holding a copy.

No doubt he used taxpayer funds for his hooker sprees. Little line item in the governor’s travel budget.

Nope. Not anymore. Apparently the document people are reading is a "complaint". Greta just confirmed it.

We're seeing an example of why cable news sucks.

Greta is saying what she is holding is a complaint, not an indictment.

Greta insists what she is reading is a complaint, not an indictment, and Spitzer is not named in it.

Spitzer is not named. However, he is “Client #9”. Oops. . .

NY POST
>> But in a brief statement this afternoon, Spitzer said little about what he called “a private matter.” He apologized to his family and the public but didn’t say why he was apologizing. “I was disappointed that I did not live up to the standard that I expected of myself,” he said.

He added that he must now “dedicate time to regain the trust of my family.”

Correct, a complaint against “Client #9”. He is not specifically named, but his actions seem to indicate it is him. It was also reported on the news that he made a brief speech where he resigned, but that does not appear to be true. I think he made a speech where he did not resign.

I’m not sure I’m happy about this.

Spitzer was bad but now we (NY) gets David Patterson the uber-leftist cop hater as Gov.

And wait....wasn’t this only about sex??

So what’s a complaint? That sounds like something Mrs. Sptizer would make.

The Times reported that a person briefed on the federal investigation said Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month.

His statement sounds a lot like what Detroit's Dem/Thug Mayor has been spouting in response to being caught out. The Dems probably have a file of cookie-cutter apologies and excuses. LOL

Now Shep is saying he resigns at 7PM, and he’s “hoping” to keep it to a misdemeanor rather than a felony so he can keep his law license.

Just check Diamond rating stamp,, 1 to 7 Diamonds on the scale..

I’d say he’s a 5 kind of guy,, altho having his pick fly down to visit him in DC tells me money was not an issue.

I do feel bad for his wife and kids tho..

If he becomes Governor, Paterson will have to nominate a new Lt.

Maybe Bubba will decide to go for this job — then if Paterson “resigns” himself, he’s back in the game...

If he is indicted, doesn’t he get disbarred?

Will Failary condemn him and his endorsement?

Is there another person with secret service protection from NY involved?
