We Thought We Couldn’t be Dumbfounded Anymore
… a conviction against public enemy and interior decorator Martha Stewart
Oh yes, it’s a private matter when the nation is informed that one of its more vociferous Governors of one of the most recognized States in the World, has just gotten his cover … suffice it to say that his dalliances in procuring prostitutes is no longer a private affair. Spitzer would be best served by not talking about it again. However, how will he avoid being prosecuted under the same law he so meticulously and endlessly pursued in order to get a conviction against public enemy and interior decorator Martha Stewart?
It was quite clear that the then Attorney General of NY State knew she didn’t do anything other than what her broker told her to do. She wouldn’t take a deal to put him in jail so they retaliated. Just the thing one needs for one’s resume when planning a run at the big house in Albany. He even trumped-up the charges further by adding Fraud because she took the step, under the law, to declare her innocence. For declaring her innocence, he charged her with Fraud. Legal scholars around the country were shaking their heads at this and the fact that Spitzer was using White Papers about the economic impact of Mutual Funds as the connection that would make Martha Stewart an insider … which she wasn’t.
Well …. what goes around …. comes around (pardon the insensitivity) and considering the possible solicitation and Mann Act charges, we are truly dumbfounded.
Just What the Extreme Right Needed
“… the Democratic Party is like riding the Cyclone at Coney Island”
You know they will, since Hillary has received enthusiastic and apparently genuine support from Spitzer and the NY Dem Machine. What could she possibly say except shrug her shoulders like the rest of us. No doubt though, there will be jokes about phone calls with Hillary and Silda and the inevitable SNL sketch about the same.
The extreme Right can always count on a Democrat to hand them the help they need when they most need it. It never fails. We’re not energetic enough to post the montage of Democrats shooting themselves in the foot, or waiting until the last minute to tell their colleagues that they’re switching parties. Sometimes the Democratic Party is like riding the Cyclone at Coney Island.
