Governor Eliot Spitzer’s downfall is not because he was involved in a prostitution ring. The technical details of the case aside, the real reason the New York Governor has his head under the guillotine is because he took the high moral ground so often in the past, and this has come to haunt him. (Maybe this is one reason President Clinton was let off so easily. He had a history of bad behavior, so one more might not have mattered as much.)
The other, more despicable thing in all this is MSNBC’s interview with Dina Matos, the ex-wife of former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey, who resigned in 2004 after declaring that he had had an extramarital affair with a male employee. The interview was voyeuristic and shameless, in that the interviewee was there, but she did not seem very comfortable being there; but she had to give the interview, and had to sound as if she was still enduring the pain, while, in all probability, she must have taken a good sum of money in order to give the interview.
