Don’t let one bad spot spoil the whole fruit
I really don’t know how people can compare Spitzer to Weiner. The one did what men have done since the beginning of time — he went to someone who practiced the oldest profession in the world. The other behaved like a dirty old man with a raincoat.
While in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, Spitzer spent six years doggedly pursuing organized crime figures.
And as State Attorney General, he locked horns with the Gambino Mafia family. Spitzer also won a spectacular victory when he uncovered emails revealing that Merrill Lynch was riddled with financial conflicts of interest that affected its advice to customers. Merrill Lynch settled out of court for $100 million.
He became know as “The Sheriff of Wall Street.” Weiner, while in Congress, wrote only one bill.
He spent more time trying to get in front of a camera then actually doing any real work. And I guess he still can’t stop putting himself in front of a camera.
