Resignation Imminent

The fork is coming out of the drawer:
Lt. Gov. David A. Paterson and his staff have begun laying the groundwork for him to take over as governor and are reaching out to members of the Legislature, the aides said.
UPDATE: The Governor will be making a statement at 10:30 AM Central Time, Wednesday. Hmmmm, I wonder what he'll say . . .
Gov. Eliot Spitzer will resign Wednesday, his aides said, as the New York governor faces allegations -- but no charges -- that he is tied to an international high-dollar prostitution ring ensnared in a federal probe.

Gov. Eliot Spitzer apologized for a personal indiscretion Tuesday, but did not elaborate.

Spitzer is scheduled to speak at 11:30 a.m. ET. The news conference will be aired on CNN TV and CNN.com Live.
