Certainly Spitzers Tab assumed to be as much as $80,000 worth of Tang, certainly shows Good Time Eliot, was giving it as good as it gets, giving New York Taxpayers pretty much the same as he was giving his Lady Friends in his MIssionary work. In the end, Spitzer got Screwed, Blued and Tatooed by investigators and media
We have gone through a decade of self professed righteousness from Politicians, Religious Television Evangelical Icons, ad naseum, and when the accused hit the media spotlight, they have their wronged wives and kids by their side as a show of moral support and strength. If any of these so called Pillars of Strength has the testicular fortitude, one would think they would save their spouses and kids from embarrassment and tell them to sit in the background, and take their Medicine Like Men, without trying to garner sympathy by hiding behind their wife and kids. Certainly using his "pained and distraught" family and thrusting them embarrassingly into the spotlight shows Spitzers true colours. A coward and opportunist to save his own skin.
ALBANY, N.Y. -- With pressure mounting on Gov. Eliot Spitzer to resign over a call-girl scandal, investigators said yesterday he spent tens of thousands of dollars -- perhaps as much as $80,000 -- with the high-priced prostitution service.
While Spitzer and his family remained secluded in their Fifth Ave. apartment, Republicans began talking impeachment, and few if any fellow Democrats came forward to defend him. A death watch of sorts began at the state Capitol, where whispers of "What have you heard?" echoed through the ornate, 109-year-old building.
