Chuck Schumer defended Eliot Spitzer and said everyone should move forward and “point to the future.”
Someone at New York 1 News sent over a clip of the yet-to-be-aired interview with Schumer. In it, Schumer said:
One major difference there, of course, is that Gonzales resigned and the Spitzer aides involved in the scandal haven’t.
In the same interview, Schumer was asked about the troubles surrounding Hank Morris, a political consultant who helped elect Schumer to the Senate. “Well, Hank has been an outstanding political consultant,” he said. “He’s a man of great, great intelligence and perception and I find him to be a person of integrity.” He added, “But as for this investigation, I don’t know the details.”
The interview with Schumer will air tonight at 10.
