Elliot Spitzer Threatened Critic
— Ace

NY AG, and likely gubernatorial candidate, Elliot Spitzer is alleged to have "chilled the right to dissent" of an opinion-writer in the WSJ:

a furious Spitzer tracked [the critic] down in Texas last spring after he authored an earlier piece in defense of former American International Group CEO Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, who was being investigated by Spitzer for corporate fraud. '

Citing notes he said he took during the telephone conversation, Whitehead quoted Spitzer as saying, "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."

...

Spitzer has denied Whitehead’s claims. However, on Friday, the Post reported, Spitzer admitted to having a “a passionate conversation” with Whitehead.

NY GOPers are calling for a probe. Some are calling for impeachment, but really, do we have to play their reindeer games?

1 I hate Elliot Spitzer he tried to close my Lord and Taylor. Some nonsense about monopolies, Macy’s bought Lord and Taylor and Mr Spitzer took it upon himself to save us from this evil cooperate greed. According to our AG, Macys and Lord and Taylor could no longer be in the same mall. I don’t need Elliot making my shopping decisions for me. If Lord and Taylor turns into Macy’s 2 at my local mall then I am capable of making that decision about where to shop and not some nit wit in Albany. After an angry letter writing campaign he backed down, nothing pisses women off more than when men try to keep us from shopping. God help us in NY if he becomes Governor. We will be looking back fondly on Cumo. I bet if Spitzer becomes governor the Red States will gain even more congressional districts.

2 Anything that cuts that motherfucker Spitzer off at the knees is good by me. He's one of the filthiest, most zealous anti-liberal (in the European sense) people in US politics at this time. It is hard to overstate my loathing for him. He represents everything that is bad in the regulatory structure of US business. Ideally he'd be up against a wall looking at a bevy of rifle barrels. Actually, better yet, throw him in a pit with Paul Sarbanes and Mike Oxley and set tigers on them.
