Eliot Spitzer And The Politics Of Sin

With the deliciously-scandalous news of New York's Freudian (i.e., everybody does everything to get more sex) Governor, comes word that the randy chief executive is attempting to negotiate a plea deal. Apparently, he doesn't want to resign his office unless guaranteed that he won't be prosecuted for his crimes.

Hmmmm. Perhaps. But if the interests of justice are truly to be served, one might be inclined to demand a gubernatorial pardon for each and every madam, prostitute, and john prosecuted by Spitzer during his tenure in his various offices.

Anyone sitting in prison or with a criminal record because of Spitzer's actions seems to me to be entitled to demand it as a matter of simple justice.
