Fight The Perfidy, Governor Spitzer
February 9th, 2007

An editorial in the New York Post enthusiastically approves the harsh attacks Governor Eliot Spitzer has been letting loose on the Assembly since Wednesday, when it chose one of their own, Thomas DiNapoli, to succeed Alan Hevesi as comptroller, rather than pick one of the three finalists selected by the screening panel of former comptrollers.

It quotes Spitzer as having said: “There’s nothing like losing a skirmish that leads me to want to win the next round more. The knockout blow is coming very soon.”

“Strong words – but appropriate,” the Post remarks. “For one thing is clear: Spitzer needs to make [Assembly Speaker] Shelly Silver and his partner in perfidy, Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno, pay a price for their double-dealing.”
