Democrats Reach for an O.J. Analogy

The state Democratic Party has just gone one step past the Whitewater analogy, reaching for another recent American lowlight to characterize the ongoing Republican pursuit of Eliot Spitzer.

Here’s a statement from consultant Jonathan Rosen in response to Republican state Senator George Winner’s call for another hearing:

“These guys just don’t know when to quit. The Senate Republicans holding an ethics hearing is like O.J. searching for the real killer. Senate Republicans should end the partisan theatrics and join the Governor in getting back to work on the real issues that matter to working families. Let’s end the show trial, leave the investigating to the investigators, and get back to work.”
