In a few minutes, Gov. Eliot Spitzer is going to give a press conference concerning allegations he was involved with high-priced hookers. This is an amazing melt-down in record time of a once promising career.
Here’s a guy who got 70 percent of the vote…and from the get-go he’s stepped into one political mess after another. Let’s see there was Trooper-gate, the tussle over the naming of a new comptroller, the impasse over drivers licenses for illegal immigrants…And now this!
What on earth will Spitzer do? Will he resign?
Here’s my strategy: He should use the conference to propose a state law legalizing prostitution. It should be retroactive, of course.
It’s his only hope.
