New York governor Eliot Spitzer has all but expressly admitted he enjoyed the services of one or more prostitutes. At a hastily-summoned press conference, Spitzer ducked the hard question, saying only that he had violated his obligations to his family, "I failed to live up to the standards I set up to myself. Now I stand to regain the trust of my family," he added, as his wife, Silda, stood by his side.
What I don't get is why these guys find it necessary to drag their wives through it when they're caught. B.C. premier Gordon Campbell did it, so did Bill Clinton. It's as though they're saying, "Look, she's still here beside me, so it's not all that bad and you - get over it."
At least Kobe Bryant's wife got a huge diamond ring out of it when it was her turn to stand by her man.
