NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer apologizes for prositution link, doesn't resign



New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is in a heap of trouble after being tied to a high-end prostitution ring, according to the New York Times.

Governor Spitzer addressed the scandal at a press conference in New York on Monday but did not resign from office.

"I have acted in a way that violates my obligation to my family and that violates my or any sense of right or wrong," Spitzer told reporters.

"I do not believe that politics in the long run is about individuals," Sptizer added. "It is about ideas public good and doing what is best for the state of New York."

Those words sounds like Spitzer hopes to remain in office, but CBS2 in New York is reporting that the Governor will step down.

"I apologize first and most importantly to my family," Spitzer said. "I apologize to the public who I promised better."

Spitzer didn't deny any allegations in his very brief press conference, but repetitively apologized for making a mistake.

The Emperor's Club VIP, the brothel at the center of the controversy, has been busted as a prostitution ring charging between $1000 and $3000 an hour. The governor didn't admit to buying a prostitute himself, but Spitzer was definitely apologizing.

The New York Times is also reporting that Governor Spitzer was busted during a wire tap in Washington, D.C.

The wiretap recording evidently captured a man identified as Client 9 on a telephone call confirming plans to have a woman travel from New York to Washington, where he had reserved a room. The Times source says Mr. Spitzer has been identified as Client 9.

When Spitzer addressed reporters on Monday, his wife stood by his side.
