It's interesting and instructive to watch an individual destroy his reputation in public. This fellow became the hero of the "little guy" through his heavy-handed investigations of Wall Street. He then rode his reputation to the Governor's job in New York. His same take-no-prisoners approach has nearly ruined his administration in just the short time he has been in office. Now, he and his aides are being investigated for using the state police to smear an opponent. For what it is worth, the financial community howled about the unfair methods he used when he was the state attorney general, but no one paid attention then. They are now.
