Eliot Spitzer was once a bright and shining star in politics. He was the attorney general of New York state, and then became governor, winning his post in a landslide.
As attorney general, he took on the banks and Wall Street, and brought attention to their wrongdoings.
As governor, he promised more of the same, to stand up for justice and to fight injustice in all areas.
He could have fought it, he could have taken the stance that although he embarrassed himself and his family, and brought his personal life into the spotlight, nobody was hurt nor was anybody wronged.
But instead, he took the stance that no one is above the law, and that his flaws went against his moral stance that principles and integrity were what mattered.
And so, to the rejoice of the banks and the Wall Street firms he went after, Eliot Spitzer left office in disgrace. And many lined up to shovel dirt on his coffin.
But Spitzer is raising his profile once again, speaking out on many issues.
And one of the issues he speaks out about, as you can see in the above video, is love and redemption.
Redemption is something Elliot Spitzer surely knows about.
He also has some good things to say about love, although I would add that Eliot Spitzer proves, as I said in the article I wrote last week, Relationships, Love and Sex, Part 1, that love is a messy and complicated affair, and that even the experts aren’t expert when it comes to matters of the heart.
And that’s all because, as I pointed out in the last article, the heart has its reasons that reason does not know.
