I Am Shocked About Eliot Spitzer

Commentary - serious and humorous - about Eliot Spitzer's recent admission to participating in a high-class prostitution ring 17 People

    Hypocrisy In Office

    It's not much of a surprise to be honest. What I don't understand is why his wife is standing by him. Perhaps her love for him is unconditional? That's pretty much a license to cheat. He was well known for his rather hard-line stance against organized crime and prostitution. I...

    Political Blunders

    Well I might not be all that shocked after all COME to think of it. Hes a man after all and that seems to be what they do.maybe he did it to gain EXPOSURE. What really matters is whether it affects his ability to make decisions in the nations best interests, and as far as...

    Wow.

    Spitzer is a public figure, and should serve as a role model for the community. Instead, he decided to fool around with a prostitute for several years. What kind of message does this send when he makes it his goal to bust white collar crime and fraud, and then ...

    A Song For Spitzer

    Wanted to share the lyrics from the song "Everybody Finds Out" by Fleetwood Mac.  I just thought it was fitting for the whole situation.  We see no change in sight Watching her decline She gets on a midnight plane She's done it a thousand times When...

    Lying Hypocrite

    Ok, I'm not from New York, and I am a registered Democrat. However, I still have no sympathy for Eliot Spitzer. This man campaigned as "Mr. Clean", he puts people in jail for this... (Now, I support legalization of prostitution) then goes off and does it himself. He...

    Not Really

    I'm not really shocked about what happened with Eliot Spitzer, but I didn't think it was worth creating a new group. I think that whole situation was blown out of proportion because it should be widely known by now that politicians tend to engage in this kind of behavior. I'm...

    More Than Meets the Eye

    I find these "scandals" so conveniently timed to elections that we have to wonder if the discovery of a politician's double life is completely random or motivated by something much deeper than we can see. I'm not saying men like Spitzer are free of wrongdoing, but I do...

    Unprecedented Hypocrisy

    perhaps I shouldn't be surprised but it is just disgraceful for someone who holds him or herself out to hold others to such a high moral standard only to be found a hypocrite.  in my view, the cheating, horrible as it may be, is the least shocking aspect of this demise

    To Those Whom Much Is Given....

    ... much is required! This man is dispicable. He isn't sorry for what he did... He is sorry he was caught! I wish his wife would have publicly renounced what he did and expressed her horror and embarassment at his immorality and obvious lack of values! When will one of these...

    Biological?

    It's silly to say that he was just "being a guy".  Do we have to permit cheating behavior if it is "biological?" I feel so sorry for his wife. She looks so miserable in those pictures. It looks like it was just as much a shock to her as everyone else...

    It's the Self-righteousness...

    What bothers me about this situation is not the fact that he patronised the prostitutes -- personally, I believe the industry should be legalised and regulated -- but that he led the people of New York to believe that he was 150 percent above board, a man with nothing to hide who...

    Who Cares?

        Why does the public care so much. Yes he has a family and that's going to cause some problems at home but that's just it, it's his problem not ours. Anyway, in my opinion prostitution is a victimless crime if anyone wants to debate that fine I will. People get...
