Tough questions for Spitzer on hypocrisy of never being charged with breaking the law he signed

    What does it matter!!!
    Spitzer and Weiner will elected in by landslide margins. Look at them, they are poster children for New York City.

    Gotta love these blue states. They reduce their prison costs by simply electing their criminals to public office. That's Democrat logic for you.

    He is well known and has the money to put himself out there. If he can keep it in his pants, then he'll win.
