well, one has to compare with republican sex scandals. larry craig for one. and especially david vitter. he went to hookers yet he was not asked to resign. why are not prosecutors going after him? they were hookers, which is against the law. vitter was holier than thow.
have a great holiday week end!

Spitzer was not "assassinated". He made bad choices and knowingly broke laws.
After reviewing the complete scenario...I also suspect a higher setup. And that setup is what I believe the OP is looking for. IMHO no one could care less of what he did or not, but who on higher levels he upset the most.
It was the night of February 13 when Spitzer made the bone-headed choice to order take-out in his Washington Hotel room. He had just finished signing these words for the Washington Post about predatory loans:
“Not only did the Bush administration do nothing to protect consumers, it embarked on an aggressive and unprecedented campaign to prevent states from protecting their residents from the very problems to which the federal government was turning a blind eye.”
Bush, Spitzer said right in the headline, was the “Predator Lenders’ Partner in Crime.” The President, said Spitzer, was a fugitive from justice. And Spitzer was in Washington to launch a campaign to take on the Bush regime and the biggest financial powers on the planet.
Spitzer wrote, “When history tells the story of the subprime lending crisis and recounts its devastating effects on the lives of so many innocent homeowners the Bush administration will not be judged favorably.”
But now, the Administration can rest assured that this love story – of Bush and his bankers - will not be told by history at all – now that the Sheriff of Wall Street has fallen on his own gun.
