Governor Richard Milhouse Spitzer

The New York Sun reports the latest outburst from Governor Spitzer in a speech yesterday regarding his scheme to provide driver's licenses to illegal aliens:

"No amount of hysterical rhetoric will prevent us from doing what is right. I'm not going to run from the fight just because the other side decides to demagogue it."

"Hysterical rhetoric. "

A major focus of this blog is frauds, fakes and phonies in public life. Governor Spitzer has used "hysterical rhetoric" throughout his career, and largely never paid a price for it.

Until now, as Wayne Barrett notes in today's Village Voice.

I'm surprised he made it through this speech without dropping an f-bomb or ten on his audience.
