U.S. Attorney Won’t Charge Spitzer

The U.S. Attorney’s office will not seek charges against former Governor Eliot Spitzer, who resigned from office in March after news organizations reported that he had patronized a high-end prostitution ring.

 

Here’s the statement from U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia.

And here, below, is a statement from Spitzer, sent by his spokeswoman Anna Cordasco:

“I understand the Office of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York has decided that it will not bring criminal charges against me. I appreciate the impartiality and thoroughness of the investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and I acknowledge and accept responsibility for the conduct it disclosed. I resigned my position as Governor because I recognized that conduct was unworthy of an elected official. I once again apologize for my actions, and for the pain and disappointment those actions caused my family and the many people who supported me during my career in public life.”
