Are You Kidding Me?

I don’t like to talk politics here but, as a New Yorker, I just can’t let Spitzer’s bombshell announcement yesterday go without mention. In case you haven’t heard what that announcement was, NY governor, Eliot Spitzer, admitted to being involved in a high-price prostitution ring. Personally, I’m not bothered by the fact that he was visiting a lady of the evening. I always thought he looked a bit sleazy and figured he was probably up to far worse than hookers. What shocks me is how stupid he must be to think that the governor of New York would be able to get away with flying a prostitute from NY to Washington DC for a $4000 “date”. I’m not implying that Spitzer or any other political figure should be expected to live their lives with greater morality than any other citizen – but, don’t choose a career of public service and public scrutiny if your private life is filled with secrets.
