Eliot Spitzer Involved In Prostitution Ring

A little more of those ethics we’ve been hearing about:

ALBANY - Gov. Eliot Spitzer has informed his most senior administration officials that he had been involved in a prostitution ring, an administration official said this morning.

Mr. Spitzer, who was huddled with his top aides early this afternoon, had hours earlier abruptly canceled his scheduled public events for the day. He is set to make an announcement about 2:15 this afternoon at his Manhattan office.

Mr. Spitzer, a first-term Democrat who pledged to bring ethics reform and end the often seamy ways of Albany, is married with three children.

Update: It keeps on getting funnier. Here is the opening line of his apology statement: Over the past nine years I’ve tried to uphold a vision of progressive politics that would rebuild New York and create opportunity for all.

Well he NAILED his progressive vision right on the head. And he did create JOB opportunities.
