Step Down, Governor!!

via NYTimes:
ALBANY - Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month, according to a person briefed on the federal investigation.

An affidavit in the federal investigation into a prostitution ring said that a wiretap recording captured a man identified as Client 9 on a telephone call confirming plans to have a woman travel from New York to Washington, where he had reserved a hotel room. The person briefed on the case identified Mr. Spitzer as Client 9.

Mr. Spitzer today made a brief public appearance during which he apologized for his behavior, and described it as a “private matter.”
I agree it is a private matter, and no need to drag the great state of New York into it. Time for Spitzer to leave the state in the capable hands of Lt. Gov David Paterson.

This is not a partisan issue, this is a "right thing to do" issue!
