No Federal Charges Against Spitzer


cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com

The United States attorney in Manhattan, Michael J. Garcia, announced on Thursday afternoon that no federal charges will be filed against former Gov. Eliot Spitzer of New York, who resigned in March in a scandal over his role as a customer of a prostitution ring.

There have been a few interested ATS'ers that have been speculating about Spitzer's potential knowledge of certain conspiratorial theories in recent history. This is meant as a tid bit to update the community on his status.

I wonder what he knows? But more importantly, will we ever know if he was targeted for being too aggressive in his investigations into the financial community... or perhaps even 9/11?

Perhaps, that sounds very likely, assuming he knew something or was exposed to some information he wasn't intending to keep quiet about. But I can't get a grasp on what exactly he may have known or gotten involved with? I have seen posts that put him in the role of hero and also that put him in the role of villain. I can't imagine why anyone would have wanted to destroy his career, and I find it hard to believe it was all about his relationship with this prostitute.

Unless it made him vulnerable to blackmail or something.

Spitzer was trying to investigate the 'predatory lending practices' we are all paying for now.


portland.indymedia.org...


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
.

I'm not speaking to the mans morality, but obviously, there is way more to this story than what was spouted by the MSM and DOJ.

Thanks for that. I knew there was more to the story than this particular e-journalist was reporting. But then, that's par for the course.
