    Unfortunately, Americans would rather have a Hollywood sleaze type elected official like this than someone who would do the job without all the extra curricular activities!

    I am disgusted by this guy and yet Mark Sanford leaves SC to his mistress in Argentina on government funds and gets elected because forgiveness can only be found in republican Christian south? He was due in court 2 days after being elected recently for stalking his ex wife. Sanford was corrupt, Spitzer is gross. Spitzer at least put criminals away. Gingrich was the worst of all cheating on dying wives and was ahead of Romney in Dec 2011. Gingrich suddenly found God and all is well. I have never voted in city elections and if I lived in NYC, I would care more about his record than what is done on your own time. Half the country divorces and religion is dying for people 18-29. As Paula Dean said, throw the stone at her head and kill her if you never made a mistake.

    Why trust a politician with no honor. We have too many already in Washington that are taking the country down. The answer is no!!

    "have shown that public disapproval, especially over sexual misconduct, can be fleeting, and voters seem open to those who seek forgiveness and redemption."
    No they don't. Members of parties will forgive their own. The opposition will scream loudly about how bad they are. And the beat goes on and on and on and on..
    And America gets worse and worse candidates, because truly good and smart men and women choose other professions and careers over the swamp of DC. The swamp calls its own.

    There's one little thing I have a problem with. The guy was more than willing to violate the trust of his wife and the sanctity of marriage, not once but repeatedly. And he has the unmitigated gall to ask for peoples trust again???
    Burn us once shame on you, burn us twice shame on.... us.
    No do-overs.

    I did not know they were wanting to ban hot dogs. They can ban a lot of stuff, but the second my Speedway chili dogs are banned, there will be hell. That's where I cross the line!

    He did good work with clamping down on predatory banking. As for the prostitution thing, well, that hasn't hurt Republican David Vitter, now has it?

    That good work Spitzer did was likely one of the reasons he got caught. Certain corporate parties wanted him out of their way, but that's only rumor, I can't back it up. Just sayin'.

    @JackinVienna - Aren't they all? But they don't all get caught. Not excusing, just sayin', there were those with power and influence with reason to want to discredit Spitzer.

    Spitzer was a bully and a hypocrite. As a former NY'er, I was happy to see his act play out. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Now if he would only just go away.

    Rather typical american political "scandal". I notice the politician who buggered off with his south american mistress was very quickly "forgiven" and re elected.

    He shouldn't have any problems getting elected since Republicans have shown by example that "family values", "morals", and swearing to "restore honor and dignity to public office" don't matter in public office. Since the GOP has show itself to be so hypocritical maybe it won't matter now who a candidate is having sex with as long as he does his job.

    It wasn't the GOP that put Slick Willy into office. Neither party is beyond overlooking a lack of moral character. Marion Barry is one of many.

    @Pr0-Lif3 There was a time when if you were caught with a live boy or a dead girl your career was over. I'm not sure that would still hold true in the cesspool that is today's politics.

    That's true but as I pointed out the Republicans claimed to be morally perfect and the Democrats didn't. And again as I stated that makes Republicans hypocrites, something most of them don't seem to understand the meaning of.

    Unfortunately for him he chose to lie in it with a $6,000/night hooker. That is why he's in hot water now.

    Of all the things this country needs right now is to make another disgraced ex politician a public servant after his well aired sexual scandal.

    Mr. Spitzer, as brilliant as he is, campaigned against the very thing he was doing secretly. He destroyed people's lives, innocent and guilty, in his abusive quest for notoriety. Now he wants to test the forgiveness he hopes he got in the form of another bite at the apple so that he can have his life back. Pathetic.
