New York Young Republican Club Comments on Spitzer Resignation

New York, NY – The New York Young Republican Club, Inc. (NYYRC) commented today on the resignation of Governor Eliot Spitzer.

NYYRC President Lynn Krogh commented: “Governor Spitzer has inflicted serious damage on the dignity of the office of the Governor and the State of New York. We are pleased that he has tendered his resignation, today, rather than choosing to drag this out and further prevent the legislature from being able to focus on important state matters, such as the budget. Hopefully, this will serve as a lesson to other corrupt politicians who act as if they are above the consequences of breaking the law. We hope to see Governor Paterson emerge as a strong, bi-partisan leader and hope that he can restore dignity to the office of the Governor.”

“Day 2 – Emperor Has No Clothes” – NY State Young Republicans Support Impeachment, Urge Resignation

“Day 2 – Emperor Has No Clothes” – NY State Young Republicans Support Impeachment, Urge Resignation

Press Release: For Immediate

Date: March 11, 2008

Christopher Dziedzic, chairman of the New York State Young Republicans, today announced that he supports Assembly Republican Leader Jim Tedisco’s calls for the impeachment of Governor Eliot Spitzer on “Day Two – The Emperor Has No Clothes.”

“Leader Tedisco gave the disgraced governor until Thursday to voluntarily remove himself from office before impeachment proceedings begin in the Assembly,” said Dziedzic. “The governor needs to do what he knows is right and step aside to avoid such a thing from happening. Impeachment, while very necessary, will distract state leaders for other business. This needs to end now.”

Dziedzic urged New Yorkers to sign the petition on the New York State Young Republicans’ web site (http://www.nysyr.us/) urging “Client #9” to quit the state’s top post. “He has betrayed all of us and it hurts. Everyday that passes is another day that state government is halted,” Dziedzic remarked. The direct link to the petition is http://www.nysyr.us/petition.php .

“Mr. Spitzer is trying to use his office as leverage in his pending criminal charges. To that I say, ‘Stop abusing your office and your constituents. Haven’t we been tortured long enough?’” concluded Dziedzic.

New York Young Republicans Call for Immediate Spitzer Resignation

New York, NY – The New York Young Republican Club, Inc. (NYYRC) today called on Governor Eliot Spitzer to resign following the revelation of his involvement with a prostitution ring.NYYRC

President Lynn Krogh stated: “Governor Spitzer came into office saying that he was going to be making big changes from ‘Day One’ – well, he hasn’t made much progress in the way of his policy initiatives, but he has been successful in one area of change – he has actually managed to bring more corruption to Albany. “

It seems that Spitzer has been caught engaging in a crime he once prosecuted, a reprehensible action that is degrading to the office he holds. The taxpayers of this state deserve an apology and deserve a leader is who is going to do just that – lead – not stroke one’s own ego and steamroll political opponents. “

The Young Republicans in New York call on Spitzer to do the right thing and promptly resign from office. Troopergate, the crack tax, prostitution rings, what’s next Eliot? Step down, as to not disgrace the office further.”
