Spitzer Is Wrong; Faso Is Right
I am a registered democrat; I vote in all of my party’s primaries. I generally vote along party lines in most general elections. I would say that I am over 90% loyal to my party line. I am not voting for Alan Hevesi this year. In last night’s gubernatorial debate Eliot Spitzer was wrong not to call for Hevesi’s resignation as New York State Comptroller. With Hevesi admitting to having taken a public employee and using him as a personal chauffeur (among other tasks) for his wife; and doing this for years, on public time and with public dimes, has rendered Hevesi unfit to hold this office. John Faso was correct in calling for his resignation. Hevesi has abused the public trust.
From today (Day One of the future), Spitzer should be moving to establish and uphold higher standards of ethics, decency and behavior for public officials. His answers last night (relative to the Hevesi issue) leaves a doubt (which has been lingering for some time) that business as usual is about to set in with an expected victory. Despite this however, it’s difficult to vote for Faso after 12 years of George Pataki. After all, I am a registered democrat.
