gov. spitzer resigns due to prostitution scandal

i hope new yorkers are happy. a little less than six months after drawing fire for offering driver's licenses to illegal aliens, gov. eliot spitzer is again in hot water, this time for being linked to a prostitution ring.

he is expected, according to the drudge report, to resign:
Spitzer, who is married with three daughters, was scheduled to make an announcement Monday afternoon. Spitzer officials wouldn't immediately comment on the story.

The Times reported that a person with knowledge of the governor's role believes the governor is identified as a client in court papers. Four people allegedly connected to a high-end prostitution ring called Emperors Club VIP were arrested last week.

UPDATE: his resignation has now been confirmed. his lt. governor is a former member of the new york state senate named david paterson. his official site is here.
