The Sorryness of Spitzer...


One might think being a Democrat, means never having to say your sorry. Does it?

From William Jefferson Clinton's impotent impeachment to William Jefferson's bribery indictment; Senator Reid's own silent bribery fiasco; Senator Obama's inescapable link to indicted doner, Tony Rezko, one might get the idea that Democrats can get away with all manner of malfeasance and walk away relatively unscathed, and most astoundingly, still holding office.

The latest addition to the list today, is New York Governor, Elliot Spitzer. Not two years into his office and
Governor Spitzer is implicated in a prostitution ring.

Official: NY gov caught on wireta
By AMY WESTFELDT, Associated Press

NEW YORK - A law enforcement official has told The Associated Press that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's involvement in a prostitution ring was caught on a federal wiretap.

The official says Spitzer is identified in court papers as "Client 9," and the wiretap was part of an investigation that opened in the last few months.

The official says the New York governor met last month with at least one woman in a Washington hotel. The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

A few moments ago, Mr. Spitzer essentially told reporters and the State of New York , he's sorry.

With his wife at his side, Spitzer told reporters that he "acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family."

"I have disappointed and failed to live up to the standard I expected of myself," he said. "I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family."

When corruption, real or alleged, rears its ugly head on the Right side of the political spectrum, the America media and the Democrat political machine make certain the subject of the investigation is utterly destroyed... personally, professionally, and politically. Rightly so, perhaps. Corruption of any kind, moral or ethically, should be intolerable, Period! But, it seems that being a Democrat in this era of Media-defined degeneracy means simply having to say 'you are sorry.' Then you are off the hook.

Where is the demand for Spitzer's immediate resignation?

UPDATE: 05.11.08

Where is the official (read: Democrat; read: Mainstream Media) demand for Spitzer's resignation?

Every day he stays in office, should be considered an official endorsement of Spitzer's malfeasance by the DNC and The New York Times.
