• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

ALBANY - Gov. Eliot Spitzer has informed his most senior administration officials that he had been involved in a prostitution ring, an administration official said this morning.

Mr. Spitzer, a first-term Democrat who pledged to bring ethics reform and end the often seamy ways of Albany, is married with three children.

Sounds like the Governor of the nanny state could use a little nannying himself...

Why is it people in these kinds of positions (pun intended ;) ) think they can actually get away with anything? Anyone in the public eye should know better, especially since so many have gone down (oh no, another pun) before them!

Is It Really A Surprise?

Is anyone really shocked or surprised that this happened? I know he made his reputation fighting this very same type of crime as attorney general for 8 years,but really, he is still a politician and he is still human. I feel bad for his wife and kids that have supported him all through his public/political career. The higher up on the ladder, the longer the fall.

Why am I not surprised? Didn't vote for either one. So much once again for change on day one.

Just what we need - a gubernatorial scandal compliments our OpenSky system very nicely.

I don't know why or how his wife can appear on TV with him! She should kick the scum bag to the curb and move on.

Ah yes!! Spitzer is emulating his mentors; William Jefferson Clinton and the Kennedy Klan (your choice of first names) that gave new meaning to the terms Intern and Campaign Worker. If politicians were any worse, they would be televangelists.
