Eliot Spitzer, Governor of New York, Resigns From Office

Effective Monday, March 17, 2008 at noon, Eliot Spitzer will be resigning as Governor of New York for being in bed with…well Prostitutes. About 7 or 8 of them over the last few years as Attorney General and Governor paying up to $80,000.

“I cannot allow for my private failings to disrupt the peoples’ work,” Spitzer said at a news conference in New York City. “Over the course of my public life, I have insisted – I believe correctly – that people take responsibility for their conduct. I can and will ask no less of myself. For this reason, I am resigning from the office of governor.”

Lieutenant Governor David Paterson will assume office and he will be the 4th African American Governor (Deval Patrick in Massachusetts) and the first legally blind Governor in the country.
