February 14, 2008, the story broke about New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer accusing the Bush administration of preventing states from helping consumers avoid predatory lending practices.  Alex Chadwick talks with Steve Tripoli about what the president could have done to stem the subprime mortgage crisis.


What is particularly curious about this is considering that Karl Rove was recently in the news, being accused of trying to collect dirt on another Governor in another state (see article posted last week in this blog previously-see below).   One can only wonder if the outing of Spitzer’s infidelities hitting the news last week are just another example of Karl Rove’s work.  Quite a contingency plan to shut up, or neutralize one’s critics.
