SHARE Sweet: New York Gov. Spitzer snagged in hooker tryst probe. Should he resign?

WASHINGTON–The Democratic Governors Association, coming to the aid of Democratic New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer–caught up in a probe of a high class hooker ring here–is asking the public to not jump to conclusions “until all the facts of this case are known.”

The Republican Governors Association is asking Spitzer to step down.

A federal wiretap overheard Spitzer (D) seeking a date with a hooker last month. On Monday, Spitzer apologized to his wife and family in a very brief statement–and no questions.

SHOULD SPITZER RESIGN?

This from the DGA…..DGA e.d. Nathan Daschle is the son of former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.)

Daschle Responds to Spitzers Remarks

Washington, D.C. Democratic Governors Association Executive Director Nathan Daschle today issued the following statement regarding New York Gov. Eliot Spitzers remarks.

We have been closely following the unfortunate news coming out of New York today. Our thoughts and prayers are with Governor Spitzer and his family during this very difficult time. Governor Spitzer is a dedicated public servant with a long record of bringing positive change to New York.

This is not the time to play politics, particularly as investigations are ongoing. Until all the facts of this case are known, we should all exercise caution and restraint.
