Your thoughts on Eliot Spitzer’s situation

March 24th, 2008


Governor Eliot Spitzer was well known for working to eliminate wall street wrongdoings as well as helping to bust several prostitution rings. He was thought of as an “upstanding member of society” with a high moral code.

Recently he was caught on a federal wiretap where he was arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute (several thousand dollars) in a Washington hotel. He has since confessed his “double life”, publicly apologized to his wife, family, and the general public. Then he stepped down from his position as governor.

Helpful vocab:

Upstanding member of society: An upstanding member of society is a person who has high morals, tries to do what is right, and doesn’t do illegal things.

Wiretap: A wiretap is a way of secretly listening into other people’s phone calls. If you were a suspect of a crime, the police could “tap into” your phone conversations, (ie. listen to them without you knowing) to see if they could get evidence for your crimes.

Double life:  Click here to read my blog about it.

Stepped down: If someone “steps down” from a job or a position, it means they resign (quit). Often people do this to avoid having to get fired or making a big court case out of it.

I’d love to hear your opinions on this situation. Do you think Eliot Spitzer’s wife should divorce him? Do you think he is a terrible person?

    Just a dangerous person. A “double life” person is a subject not to be close to. If not, ask a spy about it. Unfortunately, many rulers tend to live a “double life” to survive in the politics world. It is so dangerous that they forget to govern properly, and people have to bear the consequences of wrong decisions.

    In this kind of situations I personally prefer not to have bad thoughts about him.Maybe He’s not leading a double life.Usually I don’t believe a word media says.Sometimes they make up “real”stories that make people’s life worse.
