- Mark Foley: Former Republican Representative from Florida. He was a big opponent of child pornography and served as a chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. His reason for resignation? Caught sending sexually explicit emails to congressional pages.
- Larry Craig: Idaho senator who supported the Federal Marriage Amendment which would define marriage as a union of man and woman and would deny rights to same sex couples. His reason for resignation? He was busted for trying to solicit sex from an undercover cop in a bathroom stallin at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Then he withdrew his resignation.
Like I said, Spitzer is no better or worse than Craig or Foley, they're all hippocrites. It's just funnier to see the conservative right get caught in a scandal that opposes their staunch viewpoints. Of course, the biggest sex scandal of the 20th century has to be Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, yet Clinton never campaigned against sex with interns. He only denied understanding the definition of sexual act. Something, probably only Hillary could vouch for.
So, Governor, hats off to you becoming the definition of irony for 2008. If I were you, I'd ask the Emperors Club VIP for a refund, you got caught. If not, at least ask for 30% to help with divorce attorney fees.
