Spitzer finds his Kryptonite

EthicsQuick quiz: Who said this?

"... we must transform our government so that it is as ethical and wise as all of New York."

You got it: Those words were part of the inaugural address given on Jan. 1, 2007 by New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, whose crusade against corporate n'er-do-wells is part of post-Enron lore. Now, he's accused of a scandalous indiscretion of his own. A bit ironic, if you ask me.

Apparently, the watchdogs need watching, too.
