Bye, bye, Spitzer: Hillary loses a Super Delegate
Jackie Mason & Raoul Felder
First, the good stuff.
1. Hillary Clinton lost one super delegate.
2. The U.S. Attorney's Office in New York was able to keep a lid of privacy on the whole subject until ready to make a public announcement. This is very rare in public life today.
3. The public now knows you can get hookers on credit cards. Our question is, if you have a Black American Express card, and you buy merchandise and are dissatisfied, American Express reverses the credit. What happens if Spitzer decides that he made a poor purchase? Do they send another hooker or does he just get his money back?
The overall story is sad beyond being sad. We view it more in sadness than in any sense of happiness, glee, or satisfaction. When our book Schmucks first came out, Spitzer, in a press conference, demanded that Raoul resign as Chairman of the State Commission on Judicial Conduct. He said if he didn't resign he will commence an action under the Public Officers Law to have him removed. Raoul said, "Fine, bring it on, let the courts decide if there is still a First Amendment in America." Spitzer backed off.
When the Bruno scandal broke in the press, Raoul said, more in jocularity than in seriousness, "I may be Chairman longer than Spitzer is Governor." Raoul's term ends March 31. Spitzer's term may end by the time you read this blog.
Because of Spitzer's reaction to the first publication of our book, the paperback edition of Schmucks, which just came out, has two chapters devoted to Spitzer. One of the chapters is entitled "The Spitzer Administration -- What didn't they know? And when didn't they know it?"
Spitzer did not resign as of now, but appeared on TV with his wife who must have suffered dreadfully to be used by him in this manner. We believe that Spitzer thought he would see how the situation would play itself out, and in his arrogance, he probably thought he could tough it through and, following Clinton's example, continue in office. It's not going to happen. This is a story that will not let go, and Hillary had better start looking for another super delegate.
