No, it's not. It's like "the_bird" said, he's a hyprocrite. The almighty sent to clean up the world. Too bad he's too full of himself to not think he might actually get caught doing something wrong.skinfiddler said:Get off the guy's back. It's only about sex. /s

An normal circumstances, I'd say "who gives a sh*t; the fact that paying for sex is illegal in the first place is bogus, so more power to the guy, even if it is dickish to cheat on your wife".Soulive said:Guys, lets not overlook the fact that what he did was ILLEGAL. Sure we can't castrate the guy for it, but he did break the law. Cheating on his wife is the moral dilemma, but soliciting and engaging in prostitution is the legal dilemma...
+1 on that. You cannot take a moral stance against something and create a voter base on the stance then s*** in the face of that. I've nothing against prostitution in theory (regulated - tested) but I do have a problem with the idea that something is no good or wrong for the plebs but is fine for the bourgeois. It is all about the double-standard.Evan! said:This isn't about whether what he did is technically against the stupid laws---it's about his hypocrisy/double standard.
I read in the NYTimes that Spitzer could sometimes be "difficult", asking the girls to do things that might be considered dangerous. Why do people in power always seem to be the kinkiest?Professor Frink said:This thread is useless without pics. I'll form my opinion once I see Kristen
So let me get this straight, Pete.PeteOz77 said:The replacement, is a blind black man. I don't know this guy's credentials, but a crime fighting, outstanding former AG seems the better choice, even if he DOES have to pay for sex with the sort of women he desires.
Balancing out the pros and cons of the entire situation, it seems too bad that someone doing as good of a job as he seemed to be, is cast aside in favour of another, less appropriate candidate.
Here, here!kornkob said:So let me get this straight, Pete.
You don't know anything about Spitzer's replacement except that he is blind and black yet you assume that the replacement is 'less appropriate' for the job than Spitzer.
Let's be honest here: you have no freaking idea whether the new guys is better worse or the same than the lying, duplicitious guy that just got run out of office.
As far as I am concerned, netiher being blind or being black makes you a bad candidate for the job. Being a hypocrite and participating in the very crimes you claimed to be fighting as you climbed into the job does make you a bad candidate.
Yep. That's why so many were calling for his head. Good riddance and DLTDHYITAOTWO.kornkob said:Being a hypocrite and participating in the very crimes you claimed to be fighting as you climbed into the job does make you a bad candidate.
Actually, if he wasn't such a hypocrite, most folks would go BFD and move on, but the a-hole is one of those "Do as I say, not as I do" pr1cks.paulthenurse said:What is this word coming to when a man can't run for Public office and get a some hookers on the side?
DUH!!!!! I say it's money well spent.
I don't like him because he's a hypocrite, but before he gets indited for ANYTHING we have some other people that deserve it much more. And that's all I'm going to comment on this.EdWort said:Yep. That's why so many were calling for his head. Good riddance and DLTDHYITAOTWO.
Look for the Spitzman to be indicted soon. Possible charges are...
* Money laundering for trying to conceal the source and recipient of financial transactions.
* Tax evasion, if he was a knowing party to an all-cash business that wasn't filing taxes.
* Violation of the Mann Act for paying for the trip from New York to D.C. by the call girl known as "Kristen."
* Misuse of state resources, if he used his state-issued credit card for hotels or meals with prostitutes as well as if he was being protected by State Troopers during his dalliances.
* And finally, soliciting prostitution.
I just wonder who will buy the governorship next? Corzine bought the NJ and Bloomberg bought NYC. Afterall, it's only money.
Can you imagine the brewing equipment you could have for a fraction of what these guys spent of their own money to buy their position of power?
It appears the sarcasm in my post wasn't apparent. I'll try to lay it on a bit thicker next time.EdWort said:Actually, if he wasn't such a hypocrite, most folks would go BFD and move on, but the a-hole is one of those "Do as I say, not as I do" pr1cks.
As far as money well spent, would you still say that if you were a NY tax payer and it turns out he spending your confiscated hard earned money on high priced nookie?
He's nothing to be proud of and everything he's done just proves his idiocy.
Ya forgot the /sarc tag. I thought you were serious about the vegans.paulthenurse said:It appears the sarcasm in my post wasn't apparent. I'll try to lay it on a bit thicker next time.
