So what else is new? It seems that every politician has something or someone to hide. And WHY does every wife stand by her 'man' as he makes his public 'apology'?? Mrs. Spitzer should run, not walk to the nearest doctor to be checked for various diseases and then to the lawyer. The politician's wives that stand by their man, are sending the wrong message to young (and old) women! This is wrong wrong wrong! I am not a prude, but expect my spouse to choose the right way just as I am expected to do so.

I think that it is terrible that Eliot Spitzer resigned. He did not ruin the integrity of the office that he was holding. He did however, embarassed the state of New York, his family, and himself. He alledgedly committed a male crime and probably money laundering, but so have many other government officials going back through time. Not being commited to your wife and family is a moral crime; and should have been left up to his wife and family to decide his demise.

Yes, he does have this holier than thou attitude; but it was not like he was taking bribes or something much worse; but I still do not feel that he should have resigned as Governor. It is a shame!
