Eliot Spitzer has vetoed a bill that would have allowed NYS Troopers to resume plea-bargaining in traffic cases – according to a report by the Times Herald Record. “In deciding to enforce this policy, the superintendent of the state police rightly recognized that allowing troopers to negotiate dispositions of cases in which they are also the accuser and a potential witness may lead to charges of impropriety, favoritism and corruption,” Spitzer wrote in his veto.

    Gov. Shpitzer, this is probably the worst week in your career for you to be preaching to us about charges of impropriety and corruption. Open a newspaper and read what it says about you and your staff of phoney croneys!

  2. This ticket thing is nothing. People should open their eyes and see what kind of spiritual catasrophe Sptizer is causing, between his definition of marraige and his approval of the Catskills casino.
