Eliot Spitzer, 48, the Democratic governor of New York, a married father of three teenage daughters, and “Client #9” in a prostitution ring, made clear that his political career is over. He is quitting as governor effective Monday.
“In the past few days, I’ve begun to atone for my private failings to my wife, Silda, my children and my entire family,” he said. “The remorse I feel will always be with me.”
Let’s no throw stones, but pray for Spitzer instead! “There, but for the grace of God …”
His wife and girls need our prayers, too.
