I’m still in engagement lalaland but I couldn’t resist blogging this:
Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer was reading his newspaper on a recent Thursday morning when he was jolted by a comment made by his successor, David A. Paterson.
In the 22nd paragraph of a New York Times article on Aug. 21, Mr. Paterson said that aides to Mr. Spitzer had lacked experience in Albany, and added that the Spitzer administration’s management approach sometimes “just didn’t work.”
Mr. Spitzer grew upset, according to a senior aide to Mr. Paterson and another official. He picked up the phone, reached a Paterson aide, demanded a public apology from the governor and “issued threats, veiled and unveiled” against Mr. Paterson, said the aide, who insisted on anonymity because he did not want to anger either man.
No public apology was offered; Mr. Spitzer and Mr. Paterson have not spoken since June.
Hahahahaha. Sorry, is Eliot “brought down in a hooker scandal” Spitzer unaware that he’s no longer in a position to be demanding anything from anyone ever? He’s threatening the governor? Is he serious?
