Drunk With Power

In a way that would be familiar to David Codrea, Elliot Spitzer had a reputation for abusing his office to silence critics.  While perusing Classical Values, I came across this blast from Spitzer’s past:

Last April, The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed piece by me titled “Mr. Spitzer Has Gone Too Far.” In it I expressed my belief that in America, everyone–including Hank Greenberg–is innocent until proven guilty. “Something has gone seriously awry,” I wrote, “when a state attorney general can go on television and charge one of America’s best CEOs and most generous philanthropists with fraud before any charges have been brought, before the possible defendant has even had a chance to know what he personally is alleged to have done, and while the investigation is still under way.”

Since there have been rumors in the media as to what happened next, I feel I must now set the record straight. After reading my op-ed piece, Mr. Spitzer tried to phone me. I was traveling in Texas but he reached me early in the afternoon. After asking me one or two questions about where I got my facts, he came right to the point. I was so shocked that I wrote it all down right away so I would be sure to remember it exactly as he said it. This is what he said:

“Mr. Whitehead, it’s now a war between us and you’ve fired the first shot. I will be coming after you. You will pay the price. This is only the beginning and you will pay dearly for what you have done. You will wish you had never written that letter.”

No doubt Mr. Whitehead will have the last laugh at this petty and vindictive tyrant.  The people of New York should be ashamed for ever electing this man governor.

    Hey, enjoy the schadenfruede while it lasts. In the meantime, I’ll be kickin’ it with Kirsten at the Emperor’s Club. I’d better spend that money before my wife takes me to the cleaners in divorce proceedings and the feds toss my ass in jail.

    Maybe Jeffery Skillings can become my bottom bitch.

    Adios, muchachos. *smooch*

    Yeah, but look who the people of New York elected as their US Senator.

    If they can find one big enough, Eliot should be required to wear a ball-gag in public forever.
