What?! You mean that wasn't an option of the new "stimulus" package! Count me out too then.

Ironic. He was caught by the implementation of banking procedures which he promoted while in office.

It's sickening...$80K. Wonder what he got his wife for Valentine's Day?

She needs to kick him to the curb.

I'm all for a man making a personal decision to partake in any activity, even if absent any moral standing... and I believe that the consequences of such action should be limited to the people it directly effected, in this case his wife and kids... however Spitzer made his career from busting the same prostitution rings he was frequenting, which opens him up to huge blackmail possibilities, or worse.

This shows an extreme lack of professional judgement, not just personal judgement and therefore makes him a candidate for removal from office. It has nothing to do with puritan values.

The hypocricy is a seperate issue and makes all criticism valid. The blackmail considerations are a bit strained. In any event, calling for resignation solely based on his conduct is extreme.

His blood must have been low.

His morals were low, too.

That would be the puritianical attitude I was talking about. In my experience it's just never a good idea to judge other people - especially when it comes to "moral" issues. Spitzer's practice of doing so is a big part of what makes him so ripe for criticism now.

Maybe he had too much blood in his alcohol system.

If he ends up facing the federal charges of transporting a prostitute across state lines, he could be in big trouble.

You would think his biggest problem would be having to look himself in the mirror everyday, knowing he betrayed his wife and daughters.
