So, when exactly did Eliot Spitzer’s term as governor go wrong?
Was it when his aides directed state police to create records of Joe Bruno’s use of state aircraft? Or when one of them got caught saying there was a FOIL request for the information, when there wasn’t?Or when Spitzer said that his staff had cooperated with investigators, which later turned out not to be totally true?
Every winning candidate, on Election Night, stands on a stage in some run down rented hall and claims a mandate for change. “The people believe as I believe, I’m in charge now and tomorrow and from now on we do things my way.” Mistake one happens right there before the oath of office is taken.
