Voters go to the polls Sept. 10 in New York state primaries. New York City is where the action is. Several contests will have far-reaching repercussions outside the city. Upstate voters have a stake in the outcome of one contest in particular: the Democratic primary for New York City comptroller. Like it or not, ethical behavior in the New York City world has a way of trickling upstate. The tone for the state's public institutions, ...

Morality Mr Davidson matters. Oh, not to you liberals unless it works to destroy someone on the right. You're perfectly fine with it missing in your "leaders". "some of us believe are up to their smiling teeth in conscious, and even unconscious, corruption". That's what its about. You "believe" some are corrupt so you don't care how Spitzer goes after them. It doesn't matter if he financially destroys them along the way or threatens to destroy them to get what he wants. Spitzers played the role of tyrant. He didnt beat people up in Court as much as he threatened to ruin them if they didn't agree to what he wanted. Having the financial resources of the State behind you makes a threat pretty profound. Like most liberals, Spitzer believed hurting people was good for his career. If you think he's a good man you go ahead and vote for him. It just proves how shallow liberals are.

Sarah Palin didn't have her private life open to public scrutiny by those who wanted to humiliate her? Are you kidding me? Davidson....you are a joke.

As a governor of this state, he was probably over the top. But as the Sheriff of Wall Street, he was, and is, exactly what's needed. When the weight of his personal, victimless crimes are weighed against what he accomplished as Attorney General, I can't think of a better person for the job. You can extrapolate out his personal issues to be an offense against women and that's being done. But his partners in crime were not victims, but willing participants, and I have yet to see any evidence that he harbors some kind of disrespect or hatred toward women.

As the top law enforcement officer in the state, he was transporting a prostitute across state lines to engage in illegal activities. He was prosecuting people for the exact same behavior that he was engaged in himself. As governor of the state he utilized state police to gather information on his political enemies. Is there no level of criminal activity that democrats will not tolerate as long as it's their own criminal?

Albright1, the answer is no. Liberals believe the laws do not apply to them simply because they are the chosen people. I cant think of one Democrat in office that has not broken the law, but as we all know, the media (owned lock stock and barrel by the DNC)does not care.

Both of your statements are so hysterical ( and not 'funny' hysterical) they lack any credibility. Why do you waste people's time?

Oh that's right, you're trolling and I bit. Silly me.

Hey Chuck, maybe you didn't spend much time reading about what Spitzer did as AG. I did. He believed he was a dictator who could do what he wanted. He openly threatened people and illegally used the State Police. Get a clue.
