Diaz proves why politicians can't be trusted on the average. I mean recommending that someone LIE about who they are to get millions of dollars in free publicity, just shows how low politicians stoop for votes!!!

Why do the people of New York vote for this idiot?

The same reason that disgraced New York ex-governor Eliot Spitzer, and disgraced New York ex-congressman Anthony Weiner are both leading in the polls for for Comptroller and mayor respectively. BECAUSE IDIOTS VOTE FOR THEM !

The fact that these 3 disgraces are favored by a large amount of the public, possibly a majority of the public in some cases, is a good argument against democracy.

The people of NY are not stupid. Candidates need to have brains to do a good job in politics, aside from their personals faults. That's why Spitzer and Weiner are back. I don't know anything about Quinn.

At least he's not running for reelection, so New Yorkers will no longer have to deal with his stupidity.

Spitzer is an unindicted criminal. And if these 2 morons are so smart, they wouldn't have scandalized themselves, and knowingly violated federal laws.

What is he unindicted for? From what I know, he was on the verge of cracking the banking catastrophe, and subsequently watching out for the consumer, before he got a hooker.

Hiring a hooker and showing yourself on the web, are not federal laws.

He was close to being indicted in his hooker scandal for violating federal banking laws by not reporting transactions of over $10,000 and trying to hide them form the feds. He violated The Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 (or BSA, or otherwise known as the Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act. The BSA was originally passed by the Congress of the United States in 1970, and amended several times since then, including 31 USC 53115330 and 31 CFR Chapter X. The BSA is sometimes referred to as an "anti-money laundering" law ("AML") or jointly as "BSA/AML".

Spitzer also KNOWINGLY prosecuted an innocent man. Dr. Leonard Morse was found not guilty in a fraud case brought by then-New York attorney general Eliot Spitzer, and he won a federal lawsuit claiming false arrest and malicious prosecution. Due to Spitzer's KNOWINGLY false accusations against him, Dr. Morse won a staggering $7.7 million judgment.

I'm a New Yorker, born and raised, and lived there for more tan 50 years. Spitzer is a CROOK, and should be in prison, I lived in New York, while he was Attorney General, Governor, and was living there after he resigned in scandal and corruption.

THIS GUY IS A CROOK !!!

I read the article, but really, who can you believe? Just because Morse was found not guilty, doesn't mean he's innocent, just like Zimmerman and Simpson. I don't know anymore.

Quite awhile ago, when I first heard of this case, the article had many more details about the case, and their was serious talk of Spitzer being disbarred specifically because of his conduct in this case.

And there is NO QUESTION he violated federal laws, which caused him to be the ONLY New York Governor to resign from office in scandal since the 1600's. Why the feds decided NOT to prosecute him, I don't know, but my guess is that either the feds made a deal with him to resign his governorship in exchange for not being prosecuted, and\or they felt the resignation, scandal, and public humiliation were punishment enough.

This guy is a CROOK and a BUM, and New Yorkers are well aware of that.

But it seems to me that too many LGBT people really believe that that IF a politician supports us, then he or she is given a blank check to violate any and all legal laws, and moral laws they wish to. That acquiescence is just STUPID and WRONG. But that certainly seems to be the way the vast majority of LGBT people feel.
