THERE'S a huge difference between what South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford did, and what ex-New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer did. "I didn't fall in love with any of them," Spitzer was overheard telling LMDC executive director Avi Schick the other day at Solo in the Sony Building on Madi son, where they had the $24 prix-fixe lunch. And Spitzer didn't use any taxpayer money on his trysts, while Sanford is reimbursing the state about $12,000 for travel expenses to Buenos Aires. Schick had Vietnamese beef spring rolls and a grilled chicken salad.
Spitzer's pitiful rationalization in this statement is astonishing. Does that fact that Spitzer never loved any of women that he paid to have sex with make it better than Sanford morally? No, of course not.
While it is true that Sanford broke the law by using taxpayer money for his affairs and Spitzer didn't, it is also true that Spitzer isn't totally crime-free. He broke the law by paying numerous women for sex. He should stop being so sanctimonious. There is difference between the two serial adulterers.
