    He should be in jail. What a pervert. I don't care what party affiliation he has, if he were a normal citizen, he'd be in jail.

    He should be in jail and I believe any politician who violates and basically sexually harasses a woman, should face the same penalty that someone on the citizen spectrum would. You don't get into a lady's personally space, however, if she is OKAY with it that is different. In this case he became too close for comfort. There is serious reform needed on how we deal with politicians who everyday break the law. This is an issue no matter what political stripe you have and/or support. Not only is it a political issue but morally I believe a woman should be able to do her job, without the fear of a guy breathing down her neck.

    Seems kind of light- even for a 71 year old.

    Now Fair, if you're going to throw Elliot into the mix, you can't leave out Sen. Vitter. Fair is Fair right?

    if they confine him to his home – he should still have a padlock on his penis area.

    What did Spitzer do to earn a jail sentence? Did the real world miss his arraignment, trail, conviction and sentencing?
