Report: Spitzer to Resign Within Hours

From the NY Post:

Gov. Eliot Spitzer has decided to resign and will begin notifying top state officials of his decision just after 9 a.m., The Post has learned.

Word began circulating of his decision in state political circles just minutes ago, which came after what one source called “an agonizing night,” as the governor’s wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, and the governor’s lawyers went over a possible plea deal offered by federal prosecutors, sources told The Post.

I spoke to people in the governor’s New York City and Albany offices and they both said they have no announcements pending.
