Democrat Governor Eliot Spitzer says he isn’t resigning, despite hitting the sack with a pricey prostitute. We’ll see. It wouldn’t surprise me, since Democrats have a funny way of not resigning in a scandal.
Despite the medias effort to gloss over this little fact, hiring prostitutes is ILLEGAL. He admitted to breaking the law, and is fine and dandy with keeping his power.
Again, no surprise.
Congressman Dan Rostenkowski was sentenced to 17 months in prison and never resigned his seat. He was defeated trying for re-election.
Congressman Barney Frank hired a male prostitute who proceeded to run an escort service out of the Congressman’s apartment. Frank is still in Congress.
Heck, you can drive a car into a lake and leave a woman to drown and still remain a United States Senator.
Affairs with interns (Gary Condit, not Bill Clinton….although Monica’s tryst with a “cuban” might well be categorized as tobacco abuse – not illegal, but darn well should be).
Republicans are by no means squeaky clean in the scandal department, but more often then not, they have the decency to step down from office, and if they don’t, we Republicans scorn them.
The Democrats never seem to have the same scorn for their embarrassments. They should.
New York has a fine Lt. Governor, a liberal Democrat for sure, but this isn’t about ideology. Lt. Governor David Paterson is an inspiration, blind since the age of 3, he completed his education with a Bachelor’s and a law degree, and with the aid of a companion, he competed in the New York City Marathon.
I’d take that over Client 9 any day.
