WTF Why Resign ?

I dont understand why "resign' is the automatic reaction everyone seems to be touting around triumphantly, regarding client #9 and the expensive prostitute fiascoe.
I think Elliot Spitzer is brilliant and has done so much for New York.
Ok he made a little mistake , big fucking deal.
Why is his colorful sex life everyone else's main concern this Tuesday morning ? Are the details surrounding Clintons blow jobs and sexacapade admissions still bothering you in 2008 ?
There are so many states where prostitution is a perfectly legal profession.
This would seem to connotate that the inherent moral properties and or lack thereof for prostitution in and of itself, is a subjective wishy washy per state affair. What makes prostitution so much more acceptable in the Netherlands and Nevada than here. Its not especially crystal clear really.

The problem is that Spitzer -- at least the public Spitzer -- would be the first to disagree with you. He'd be the first to prosecute you or someone for prostitution.

No pun intended, but he made his bed and now he has to sleep in it....

Elliot Spitzer is pure unadulterated brilliance.
I don't think his personal sex life no matter how colorful/questionable or hypocrite oriented should be used against him in more ways than they are already working towards.
I don't it's fair that these personal life choices or mistakes be expected to function as a deciding factor with regards to his career.
The guy is hardcore brilliance, his love for expensive prostitutes on Valentine's day notwithstanding.

I don't know if "pure" and "unadulterated" do it any more, Jaded!! Maybe "hardcore," though.

He "ruined" a lot of people's lives and careers as attorney general -- doing his job -- but because of "life choices or mistakes." Why is he exempt from that himself?

I have more to say about this. Because you commented on my blog on this topic, too, and at length, and with your usual distinctive eloquence and then some, I am going to pick up the thread there later!

Jaded,
The prostituting was least of the public's problem's. It was his public hypocrisy that pissed NY off. Mr. holier-than-though ranted and raved about immorality and brought pple to "justice", etc, when in reality he was living a very dangerous double life. He lied to NY, used his power to scare and hurt people, didn't like using condoms, and now the jerk-off is finally getting what he deserves.

The irony, like all Americans in power who are caught between the sheets, is that he will bounce back just fine. His wife will still be there for him, and he will always remain wealthy. After he pays his little fine or spends a few weeks behind bars, some law f irm will hire him for consulting work and he will be just fine.
