This is the absolute height of hypocrisy. Is it any wonder Americans have lost faith in their government? After the disastrous run of the Bush administration, Americans are feeling more let down by their leaders than any time since Watergate.

If this was a Republican governor, Dems would be going nuts calling for this guy to resign. We are talking about someone who committed serious federal crimes that are felonies punishable by many years in prison. Eliot deserves to go to federal prison. He is nothing more than a greedy, arrogant S*O*B* that is getting his just rewards.

WARNING TO PROSECUTORS - We have had enough of this BS. We will hold you accountable to make Spitzer answer to the law in the same manner as he himself would have applied it. In other words, if there is sufficient evidence that Spitzer committed structuring, Mann Act violations, money laundering, conspiracy, diversion or theft of public funds, felonious misuse of state employees (e.g., personal security detail), solicitation of prostitution, or any other offenses, whether directly proscribed by law or indirectly proscribed after the sort of "creative" application of various and ancient statutes that Mr. Spitzer himself made famous, then you better damn well charge him, try him and convict him. Again, we the public will hold you accountable.

Americans lost faith in Government long before that. It dates all the way back to Clinton Presidency when sexual harrassment and perjury became commonplace in the White House. Now we have his creepy Carpetbagger wife trying to get back in power using the whole Clintonian playbook.. whatever it takes.

Only the "Best and the Brightest" serve the public, or that's what the benighted masses are led to believe. In fact, the opposite is true. Politics attracts the worst people. It is no coincidence that probably 90% of US politicians are lawyers! QED. People with integrity shun politics and, if forced to choose between working in a local, state or federal legislature and a pig sty, would readily choose the latter. But, what does all of this say about us?

I think it goes back to JFK. Everyone knew his assassination was a government job, which is why it's been covered up for all these years. Ever since then it's been downhill....

I cannot believe that so many people belive that Spitzer should be able to "apologize and move on"!
This lowlife committed several felonies -- the type he put people behind bars for!
Would that anyone could simply apologize for committing felonies and "move on"...
I think a large portion of Newsday's readership is borderline retarded..

Did anyone see mr. Spitzers wife. She looks like a dead beat in the sack. I would have done the same. I blame this on the cold hearted Bitc* his wife for not putting out. No wonder he turned to a hooker. So what it was his $. This gut should be Pres of the US.
Mr. "I got caught with my pants down" Spitzer is by all means no prize. Being married to that sleezeball piece of s*&t is why she looks the way she does. He probably brought home an std or two. He's an SOB who ran her into the ground. She should kick him out to the curb and take him for all he's worth.

plea - please - he should be prosecuted with the same energy and zealousness that he showed when he was attorney general.

I love it when a Maggot politician gets caught and starts to wriggle!

I hope he goes up against a prosecutor that wants to take down a big trophy like he used to do.

Leave Spitzer alone. his wife is a cold heartless Bitc* in the bedroom - woman if you do not give any - we go elsewhere. We are Animals not men. Spitzer should be president for what he did not resign. Like they say be nice on the way up becuase on the way down it will hurt.

Those people usually have a political motivation for trying to "grin and bare it".

Let's face it. He's wasn't very good in anyway.

So the question is: will the lawyers charge him more than the hookers did?
