Mercury’s Own Spitzer Blogger

So it turns out that Matt Watson, the guy who’s running the very professional-looking-but-unofficial Spitzer blog, is something of a professional after all.

He works for — of all places — Mercury Public Affairs.

Asked whether this didn’t represent something of a conflict — considering Mercury’s long list of ties to Republicans including George Pataki and John McCain — Watson said that his bosses didn’t mind as long as he was blogging for Spitzer on his own free time.

Go figure.
