Spitzer has built his political legacy on rooting out corruption, including several headline-making battles with Wall Street while serving as attorney general. He stormed into the governor’s office in 2006 with a historic share of the vote, vowing to continue his no-nonsense approach to fixing one of the nation’s worst governments.
During his two terms as attorney general, his cases included a few criminal prosecutions of prostitution rings and into tourism involving prostitutes.
Do I sound pleased? Yes, I am. Spitzer was one of the reasons I left New York State - I figured if my neighbors were stupid enough to elect him to the office of Attorney General for being a “pragmatic Liberal”, I didn’t want to live among them anymore.
