Young Republican Resignation Petition Exceeds 500 in under 24 HoursVoices are Clear – Demand for Spitzer to Resign is Resounding

Christopher Dziedzic, chairman of the New York State Young Republicans, has announced that over 600 people have now signed a petition on their web site calling for Governor Spitzer to resign over the recent sex scandal.

“New Yorkers are speaking loud and clear—Eliot Spitzer needs to step down immediately,” said Dziedzic. “He is hurting his family and everyone in our state by remaining in office. The governor needs to read the writing on the wall.”

The petition went online (http://www.nysyr.us/petition.php) on Monday, March 10 at approximately 7:30PM and reached 500 signatures in less than 24 hours. It then hit 600 just before midnight on Tuesday night. A recent poll on WABC-TV in New York City says that over 60% of those polled feel Governor Spitzer should resign.

“The clock is ticking, Governor,” concluded Dziedzic.
