Lawyer Practicing in New York Admits Advising That Death Threats Are Legal; Eliot Spitzer Snoozes According to bankruptcyMisconduct.com

    NEW YORK, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- A lawyer admitted to practice in New
 York and Federal Courts conceded a transcript filed in court contained an
 accurate portrayal of a conversation in which the lawyer advised his client
 that it was perfectly fine to threaten to kill someone.
     Eliot Spitzer was the elected Attorney General for the State of New
 York, with ultimate responsibility to enforce the law as well as to uphold
 the purported ethical standards for attorneys in New York State by
 following and supporting The Lawyer's Code of Professional Responsibility.
 Eliot Spitzer has managed an office which rattled the boardrooms of big
 business throughout the state as he delighted a skeptical citizenry with
 numerous assaults on corporate misdeeds. Countless industries have had
 their often secret business practices brought before the courts and thrust
 into the light of day; except of course, for perhaps the most secretive and
 lucrative "profession."
     Powerful law firms continue to operate above the law and beyond
 scrutiny. Sadly, Mr. Spitzer's talent for appearing as a zealous foe of
 corruption and wrongdoing ceases where brethren of the bar are concerned.
 Apparently Mr. Spitzer believes every business is bad except his own.
     Do voters want an Attorney General who protects his partners and
 associates while prosecuting only those unworthy of special protection? If
 elected, will Andrew Cuomo continue the Spitzer legacy of Law Firm
 Protectionism? What could voters expect from Mr. Spitzer as Governor?
