We should ask why Spitzer was "caught."

Many have been involved with prostitutes, in and out of the practice of politics, perhaps just about always. In all sorts of illegal and unethical ways.

So there were reasons that he was "outed," wonder what they might be. And who was the interested party.

Right on, Mr. Harlem.
I guess, though, with Snowdon's outing of the security agencies spying techniques we know how the information came to be known , but I guess it is only "used" against politicians with left leaning ideologies.

Gotta ask the same about Weiner's underwear modeling career.


And this kind of manipulation of the structure of the government is what makes the Google-Verizon-CIA-NHA cabal so dangerous. They can form any kind of government they want by selective use of ALL the information of the world. Nazi's could only DREAM of such possibilities...that are now very much reality.

Yes ... completely agree.
Coincidentally enough, I just heard an NPR program that addressed the same issue with Spitzer - so people have begun to talk about it in critical ways.

I think it's a given that politicians' personal scandals are always given to the press by their political enemies. I doubt any advanced surveillance is involved. Old-fashioned gossip is sufficient.
