All for Spitzer

This morning, all the Democratic candidates for Attorney General sent out letters supporting Eliot Spitzer’s call for the legislature to pass the Martin Act for Health Care and the False Claims Act before the conclusion of this year’s legislative session.

While the two pieces of legislation would be an effective tool of the new AG, whoever it may be, it sure doesn’t hurt to be putting out press releases with Spitzer’s name in the text, especially for the candidates without the party’s stamp of approval. Likewise, it doesn’t hurt Spitzer to have all the warring AG candidates uniting to praise,
as Charlie King says, “our next Governor.”

Let the coronation continue.
