Eliot Spitzer Caught in Prostitution Sting
He was caught as part of a federal investigation and has already apologized â€“ wife by his side. Many are calling on him to resign from his position as governor of New York.
Prostitution is a good deal worse than having an affair, and Spitzer wasnâ€™t just picking up women on the street. He was a client of a large, highly organized call girl ring. For a guy whoâ€™s built his career on fighting corruption, he apparently allowed himself to be part of something that was not only illegal but could have easily compromised his ability to govern. If this ring wanted a political favor, how would he say no?
If he is indeed guilty, I think resignation is the only appropriate action. If he were my governor, Iâ€™d no longer be able to trust his judgment as a leader nor his sincerity in upholding the law.
