Spitzer Resigns

posted by on March 12 at 9:25 AM

For real this time, effective Monday. Full remarks here.

In the past few days I have begun to atone for my private failings with my wife, Silda, my children, and my entire family. The remorse I feel will always be with me. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the love and compassion they have shown me. From those to whom much is given, much is expected. I have been given much: the love of my family, the faith and trust of the people of New York, and the chance to lead this state. I am deeply sorry that I did not live up to what was expected of me. To every New Yorker, and to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for, I sincerely apologize.

Guess he'll just have to eke by on the paltry $2 million a year he makes from his portfolio now.

"From those whom much is given, much is expected."

Stiff and bitter with no accountability. I would respect him more for a simple, "Man, did I mess up bad, or what?"

Good riddance, asshole.
