report concluding they conspired with the State Police to damage Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno by cooking up a plot claiming he misused state
Spitzer, who had recently insisted that neither his staff nor the State Police had acted improperly, said communications director Darren Dopp was

This sounds almost like a mini-Watergate. Our governor used state police and taxpayer's money to try to dig up dirt (or even manufacture it) against
a political enemy from the opposing party.
Spitzer is turning out to be more and more of a crook and nutcase everyday. Im not surprised at all this happened. He seems to think that he is a
dictator and on the first day in office he supposedly said something like "f--k the legislature".
