How have the mighty fallen

It felt much longer due to the non-stop coverage, but in reality it was only two days after the news of the scandal first came out before New York got a new governor.

The New York Times broke out the full 12-inch banner headline: “Spitzer Resigns.” The Post, ever classy, added “And don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

Spitzer resigns

I felt deeply sad as I listened to Spitzer’s resignation on the radio in my office, though below on Wall Street, where the man had few friends, there were some cheers. New York magazine offered a rather comprehensive package analyzing the week’s events.

And of course, The Daily Show weighed in with their own snarky commentary on the resignation. Correspondent John Oliver on the Spitzer legacy: “A seven-diamond governor… He said he’d clean up the government, and by leaving, he’s done just that.”
