Here we go another sex scandal.

If you haven’t already heard, the Governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer, has been recently accused of having sexual relations with a young prostitute nearly a month ago.

It’s funny, though, rather than denying the accusations and trying to make amends, Spitzer resigned his position on Wednesday, and will officially be removed from office on Monday at noon.

I’m not sure who I feel bad for in this situation, or if there really is anyone at all to feel sympathetic for. There is, however, Spitzer’s wife—the innocent person in this case—who we have to sympathize for and feel her pain. For goodness sakes the woman gave up her dreams to help her husband follow his.

As for Eliot and this 22-year-old girl, whose real name is Ashley, not “Kristen,” I’m not sure I feel bad for either one of them. Spitzer made a huge mistake. Hello, the man cheated on his wife! That’s no-no number 1! Number 2 would be that he tried to hide this situation. Did he actually think that he wouldn’t get caught? When you’re in politics, the worst thing that anyone can do, in my opinion, is try to hide anything that may be illegal or hurt one’s reputation, because in the end, it WILL come back and bite you in the ass.

As for this girl Ashley, AKA Kristen, she’s absolutely pathetic. She’s basically blaming her actions on her past personal life; she came from a broken home and did drugs, and lost everything she had, etc. etc. But that’s no excuse because there are ways to straighten yourself up and there are more than enough people who are willing to help people, like Ashley, get back on track financially and mentally.

'It's complicated'"I just don't want to be thought of as a monster," Dupre told the Times. "This has been a very difficult time. It's complicated." (see the full story at

I still don’t feel bad for her, not at all. She knew exactly what she was doing. I mean, number 1: she was a prostitute; number 2: she fooled around with the GOVERNOR of NY; and number 3: she’s looking for attention. I’m not sure when or where this whole thing came about or who started the rumor—which isn’t a rumor, it’s a fact. But she’s just like all the other cases that we’ve seen in the past, the ones that deal with young girls—mainly prostitutes or strippers—who get themselves caught up in such scandals with political men or even college students (the Duke case). All of them have either expected to win the case, or they’re in it for attention and then drop the charges, or they’re doing it to get the other party in trouble. Whichever the reason, these cases are stupid. But then again, if these men would keep their hands to themselves and know the difference between right or wrong, we wouldn’t even hear about these speculations.

I’m interested in seeing the end results of this case.

Check back soon for updates.
