    In news that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's been following the enthralling New York prostitution scandal, disgraced Governor Eliot Spitzer — aka Client Number Nine — will resign his position today.
    He will make a statement at 11:30 a.m. this morning

    New York Governor Spitzer Resigns Amid Sex Scandal

    By Stephen M. Silverman

    Eliot Spitzer Photo by: Mike Groll / AP Saying, "I sincerely apologize," New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer announced his resignation during a brief statement delivered Wednesday morning from his downtown Manhattan office. His stepping down comes in the wake of his being linked to a prostitution ring.

    "I am deeply sorry I did not live up to what was expected of me," said Spitzer, referring to his "private failings" for which, he also said, "I've begun to atone."

    The announcement follows a stunning two days of revelations about Spitzer's personal activities. At a press conference Monday with his wife, Silda, at his side (as she was for Wednesday's announcement), Spitzer said: "I have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family and violates my – or any – sense of right and wrong."

    He added, "I apologize to the public, whom I promised better."

    The resignation effectively ends Spitzer's political career just 16 months after he was elected New York's Democratic governor by a wide margin.

    With Spitzer out of office, New York's state constitution calls for his job to pass to his lieutenant governor and running mate, Lt. Gov. David A. Paterson, 53, a legally blind former legislator. Paterson, whom the Wall Street Journal described as being "as widely liked as Mr. Spitzer is controversial," also becomes the Empire State's first African-American governor.

    The transfer of power will take place on Monday, Spitzer said, as he also announced that this was the desire of Paterson.

    Possible Plea Deal

    Married for 21 years and the father of three daughters, Spitzer, 48, hired a prostitute from a New Jersey escort service and arranged for her to meet him in the nation's capital on Feb. 13, for a fee of $4,300, according to a federal complaint and two lawyers briefed on the case. Additional reports suggest Spitzer may have spent at much as $80,000 for prostitutes.

    Among the questions raised was whether Spitzer used government security while he was engaged in his private activities.

    However, Spitzer has not been charged with a crime. It remains unclear whether state or federal authorities will seek to prosecute him for his alleged involvement. CNN, suggesting that a possible plea deal was in the works, has reported that Spitzer has hired a powerful Manhattan legal firm.

    In editorials that appeared the day after the revelations, calls for Spitzer's resignation were made by New York's Daily News, the New York Post and Newsday.

    Commenting on what it termed a "sad and sordid spectacle," Wednesday's The New York Times criticized Spitzer for remaining secluded in his Fifth Avenue Manhattan apartment all day Tuesday (as the state government remained at a standstill) and not alerting the public or even his possible successor as to his future plans.

    His kids must be mortified. I know I would be if I found out my father spent $80k on hookers.

    What a waste. His fall was so staggering and humiliating and he's lost everything. I'll bet he commits suicide.

    His poor family. How does his wife stand there beside him?

    If it was me, I'd stand beside him and think of all the money I would now be going to take from him in the divorce. He's worth about $500 million, so after 20 years of marriage she'll be entitled to quite a bit.

    I'll bet his wife is pissed. She was probably thrilled he was using hookers and now that it has been exposed he'll expect her to sleep with him again!
