What can I add to the already insane news of Gov Eliot Spitzer that you havent heard already.
An elected official is the center of a sex scandal and the press is equating it as a reflection of his performance in the office. If Spitzer decides to stay, which is unlikely at this point, he will have to work extra hard to fix the economy in NY State to earn back the trust we gave him.
If the powers in Albany and the press send him on his way, we have Gov David Paterson at the helm. What would this mean? Granted he cant see two feet in front of him, but will he fill those empty positions that have been neglected in the financial offices throughout the State Capital? Could Mayor Sottile have another chance at that Albany job he craves? Who knows.
This will have a ripple effect in so many directions, locally and nationally. You cant escape the 24 hour news cycle on CNN and MSNBC and their need to fill chat time. So, by mid-week, we should know where NY State is heading and what the future holds for the Sherriff of Wall Street.
