Meet the New Guv, Same as the Old Guv

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer resigned recently after it was revealed he was spending over $5,000 a pop for prostitutes (if you’ve always wondered why the government thinks $900 for a hammer is a fair price, now you know why).

Well, David Paterson, the man replacing Spitzer to become the first blind governor in U.S. history, has admitted to marital infidelity as well. Paterson’s wife also had an affair.

It’s always nice to see a couple that has similar interests.

If you think about it, this would be the perfect set up for a politician if properly played. When she’s cheating, he can say he never saw it, and when he’s cheating, he can always claim he thought the chick he was having sex with was his wife.


“Tell him to hurry up and take the picture… my wife’s coming back soon.”

“I am your wife”

“Oh. Heh heh… yeah… I know… just kidding honey”
