The Steamroller has been stopped. The Governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer, is now implicated in a prostitution ring. According to one news report I saw, there may be more involved, including money laundering.

This is the same man who went after white collar crime when he was Attorney General. Because of his campaigns against Wall Street and the Insurance Industry, many people were hurt. His investigations didn't only hurt the executives in these fields, but they hurt many lower level employees when the companies closed their doors or were forced to downsize.

This is the man who ran for governor as a reformer and who was going to clean up Albany. Allegedly he didn't think reform applied to him. His arrogance had led him to this point. Will he resign? He may think he can survive this.
