2:15p. Listening on Newsradio 88. So far, the only disclosure is that Spitzer is "involved" in a prostitution ring.
2:19p. Nothing yet, but shades of Jim McGreevy are everywhere. If Spitzer announces "I am a horny American," I am going to shit myself.
2:28p. Maybe he's getting cold feet . . .
2:31p. After a sports update, we learn that Johan had a nasty day against the Sawx, so that's nice. Still nothing on Pimpzer . . .
2:39p. I am already bored of this story. It's going to be a long news week.
2:51p. New details: Spitzer may have been a client of the prostitution ring that was broken up in NYC last week. Cell phone records may have connected him. No press conference yet.
3:04p. Spitzer was apparently known as "Client Number 9." Are they going to start calling him Love Potion Spitzer? No? Yeah, that was pretty weak.
3:05p. Apparently there are some reports that he is not going to remain as governor.
3:12p. Newsradio just broadcast the very end of Spitzer's remarks . . . I have no clue how they didn't get the beginning. He did not resign (apparently), and did not take questions. He said he needed to spend some time with his family, regain their trust, etc.
"Hi Honey it's me . . . well I have good news and bad news . . . "
Ok, so, worst live blog ever. His speech was like 40 seconds, 3/4 of which the radio station missed. They can't all be gems.
Shifting gears here, the potential headlines for tomorrow are phenomenal. Here are a few ideas:
- Eliot's Mess
- New York Head Going Down
- You Gotta Be Spitzin' Me!
Let's get some others from this crowd . . .
