This is a decision of questionable credibility. A man who resigned his political office in disgrace is now writing columns for an online magazine. Despite the editor's justification that Spitzer was known as "the Sheriff of Wall Street," Spitzer's heavy-handed tactics were often unfair and his methods an abuse of power. Slate.com has a right to give Spitzer a bully pulpit, but the credibility of the publication has dropped significantly, it seems to me.
