Let’s make one thing clear: The soon-to-be-former NY governor was and is a self-righteous, hypocritical, prig. This makes him unusual for a Democrat — they usually leave the prig part of that equation for the GOP.
The thing that really pisses me off about his hypocrisy is the causes he has betrayed. During his tenure as attorney general he took on Wall Street and it felt like he was the only politician in the US willing to actually do something to counter the gross and dangerous accumulation of power and wealth by corporations. Spitzer’s leap from grace is going to do damage far beyond his career and family.
