It is being reported that holier-than-thou New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who as New York state attorney general prosecuted at least two prostitution rings, has been caught up in a prostitution scandal of his own. You can read more about his involvement in the prostitution scandal here. We are awaiting a statement from Governor Spitzer as I write this.
Could this have happened to a nicer guy?!
Update: In a very brief statement about the reports of his involvement in what he described as 'a private matter," Governor Spitzer had this to say, in part: "I apologize first and foremost to my family. I apologize to the public to whom I promised better."
No resignation was forthcoming, but because of his low approval ratings and his involvement in the smear campaign he has led against New York state senate majority leader Joseph Bruno, a resignation is almost a certainty.
