On November 7, 2006, the date Spitzer was elected, I wrote the following in an e-mail to some friends:
The guy (Spitzer) is a bully and a power hungry lunatic. I will not be surprised when some scandal comes out of the governors office in the next eight years. People with such power trips can’t control themselves. Mark my words. There will be a gay lover or an abused intern or misappropriation of funds or something. It’s an embarassment to the Wall St. guys that they never stood up to him.
