It really is so sad that Eliot Spitzer choked up when he spoke about how he went through "a lot of pain" after getting caught in a prostitution scandal that caused his resignation as governor ["Questions follow Spitzer," News, July 10].

I wonder if he has thought about the pain and embarrassment that it might have caused his wife and family? I'm sure as long as he wasn't getting caught, it never crossed his mind. Now it's time to forgive and forget and elect him as New York City comptroller?

Call me old fashioned, but I agree with the adage that if your wife and family can't trust you, how can the city, state or nation?
