Democrat Superdelegate & NY Governor Eliot Spitzer In Hooker Scandal

What is it with Hillary Clinton’s attraction to Sex Offenders?  It looks to be that one of her pledged Super-delegates, the Governor of New York has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

From the NY Daily News:

Eliot Spitzer is Hillary Clinton‘s home-state governor, a pledged superdelegate to the former First Lady — and now a big fat headache to the Democratic presidential hopeful.

As Spitzer reportedly weighs whether to resign his office in the wake of allegations he paid a high-priced call girl for sex, Clinton is side-stepping questions about a scandal that some are already comparing to former President Bill Clinton‘s well-known sexual indiscretions.

“Let’s wait and see what comes out of the next few days,” the Democratic presidential hopeful told reporters on Monday. “Right now I don’t have any comment. I think it’s appropriate to wish his family well and see how things develop.”

While Spitzer and Clinton have never been personally close — he was famously slow to endorse her presidential bid — the governor’s fall from grace will likely remain an annoyance for Clinton on the campaign trail.

She will likely be asked again — and again — about Spitzer’s misdeeds, which can only serve to remind voters about Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky and the public humiliation it cost then First Lady Clinton.

David Letterman reminded everyone during his Top Ten riff on Spitzer’s excuses: “No. 1, I thought Bill Clinton legalized this years ago.”

Thanks to the Democrats, writers and commentators like myself don’t have to make up shit like this.
