And who's bitchin' like a scorned woman because their socialistic views are not all implemented? If you will notice, your own president's welfare reform got rid of some of this BS but you propose to replace it with MORE of the same, creating more dependents on the government than ever before. YOU have no right to tell me or anyone else that I must pay more to support someone else, period.

And back to topic, this Spritzer prick is another example of the run of the mill politicians who thinks the laws they enforce on others don't apply to them. I hope he gets roasted.

When have I bitched about this stuff? My president? You clearly have me confused with someone else, around here.

I was simply pointing out how the republican (small R) system works.

I heard on NPR this morning that the crime is arranging to move the 105 lbs, 5'5" brunette across state lines to engage in her trade, which is a felony. He has to resign. Dumb fuck.

If only that were going to be the end of it. But, since he has made some high powered enemies, who probably are too stupid to realize where all this will end up, we will soon be reading about the details of what he got for his money. Seems we are overly interested in the subject to make it illegal. All that interest is just going to provide free advertising and result in a boom in the sex for money business. Too bad. It really isn't data the general public needs to know about.

As for the partisan aspect, well, if you recall it was the "hypocrite issue" of leading and feeding the public's perception that there is something wrong with being homosexual, while engaging in homosexual behavior that Democrats latched onto with Republican and right wing religious leaders, and then the lack of Republican revulsion at the prospect of their Party leaders involving children in their activities while espousing Family values (whatever the Republicans actually believe those are, as I guess I don't really understand them if I base my understanding on observing their actions).

In Spitzer's situation, he may or may not have been denouncing prostitution as part of his public persona. I don't know. But, I agree the guy is now a hollow shell and needs to move on to another profession. NPR did note the way the information was gathered does not fit a typical prostitution sting - and based on that the information being leaked may be all that ever happens. So the guy will likely never be prosecuted or even charged, just ruined by that left leaning news organization, the NYT. Jim

All good points BUT Spritzer (Spitzer) is a hypocrite. He prosecuted prostitution, denounced it and then took part in it. Furthermore, why should family values apply only to Republicans? It's just as wrong if a Democrat does it.

^ Because the GOP claims exclusive rights to family values. That is the only reason why. Start spewing this holier than thou bullshit, and everyone is gonna want to take 'em down a notch.

I missed his trial. When was the verdict?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

When he fessed up and apologized, I guess.
