its a good thing they nailed Gov Spitzer before he succeeded with his Wall Street reforms.

Spitzer is a perfect example of the necessity of reformers to be scrupulously above reproach. Another Elliot, Ness, was labeled an untouchable because he was so squeaky clean. When asked afterwards if it was all worth it, his response was something akin to it was at the time but for too many crime did pay much better, making him question the value of his actions in the end.
