Eliot Spitzer, the governor of New York, has just resigned, days after the Times broke the story that he was “Client 9” of a high-end escort service. Spitzer made the announcement standing next to his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, who was wearing a very fetching Hermes American Flag-ish scarf.

Spitzer’s long-awaited resignation completes a tri-state trifecta of governors who’ve resigned in disgrace (after John Rowland of Connecticut and Jim McGreevey of New Jersey).

Lieutenant Governor David Paterson, CC’77, will take office on Monday, becoming the state’s first black governor. Paterson for Class Day speaker?
