Eliot Spitzer

Above: a cartoon from a couple of years ago, riffing on Spitzer's then-reputation.

It's like this is all from the Ironic Punishment from Hell ...

Eliot Spitzer is a guy who made his name prosecuting corruption, and he was an advocate for women's rights (his #1 priority was introducing a bill that would declare abortion a fundamental right, regardless of a potential future Roe v. Wade Supreme Court overturn).

I voted for Spitzer for Governor. He had many enemies from his time as crusading Attorney General for NY, including some big businesses and powerful politicians.

I am now sorry to understand that one of this man's enemies is himself.

Harry Truman said, "Three things ruin a man: power, money, and women. I never wanted power. I never had any money, and the only woman in my life is up at the house right now."
