A surprise to no one, Eliot Spitzer, wife Silda at his side, resigned from his position as Governor of New York. Lt. Governor David Paterson will replace Spitzer and be the first African American and the first legally blind governor in New York state history. While I cannot condone what brought Spitzer to this point, I do have to give him credit for this statement:
"I have demanded that people – regardless of their position or power -- take responsibility for their conduct. I can and will ask no less from myself"
It's that simple. CREW asks when David Vitter will take similar measures.
