Re: ‘Don’t let one bad spot spoil the whole fruit’ (Metro, Aug. 5)
I’m stunned! In any other universe, Eliot Spitzer would be a misogynistic creep who exploits women, but in this universe he is just “doin’ what comes naturally.”
Can you spell “double standard,” boys and girls? Let’s not forget how Spitzer was found out — an alert bank employee recognized the money-laundering techniques he was using to cover up his payments to the prostitute. MONEY LAUNDERING! Not to mention that he invited himself to a congressional hearing to have an excuse for the taxpayers to pick up the tab for his travel to D.C. for a liaison. (Oh, and aren’t both prostitution and patronizing a prostitute crimes?)
All this from the “Sheriff of Wall Street.” The hypocrisy is palpable.
I realize a ham sandwich could get elected in NYC as long as it runs as a Democrat, but I hope the voters will be a little more discerning in this election.
