Spitzer went after some pretty powerful people- you can't do that without expecting payback. He was so set up by someone in a high place. But he wasn't corrupt politically, just morally. I was expecting Silda was gonna hand him his balls. I hope his daughters never speak to him again, though they probably will just because of the $$$. He's a putz. Then again, I think any Republican could just walk right into the office at the next election.
