What Mrs Spitzer should do

Deadline to quit for NY's Spitzer
New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer has been given a deadline to step down or face impeachment proceedings over allegations that he hired a prostitute.
I was looking at the headlines, which are sordid and will continue to get worse, particularly since in addition to the sex scandal,
Federal investigators say there is no evidence Spitzer used state money or campaign funds to pay the prostitutes, but that the way he moved an estimated $40,000 through various accounts violated federal money laundering laws.
And here is what Mrs. Spitzer should do: She needs to get her daughters out of the public eye, right now, right away.

How to do that?

She needs to leave the country with them (and hopefully another close relative), and go on an extended trip - possibly until after the November elections - to a place where they can live away from the American media. Possibly Switzerland, which is not papparrazzi-obsessed the way other countries in the EU are, and where her daughters could enroll in schools that have very high security.

I'm sure she has enough relations and contacts that would support her decision and help her settle (at least temporarily) in the new place. She has the money, she has the contacts; it needs to be done, right now.

From the looks of it, however, that's exactly what she's not going to do.

A tragedy on many fronts. Certainly, I feel for his children.

It may be cold to say, but is hard to believe that Spitzer's behavior on the job or off, wasn't met with some acquiescence from his wife. She knows him better than anyone else and it is hard to believe that his behavior (on the job or off) comes a real surprise.

With reports that this has been going on for years, it becomes clear that she may have made her own deal with the devil, for reasons we can only guess.

Once again, the real victims are the Spitzer children.

With her standing next to him while he resigned, the answer is, yes.
