Elliot Spitzer Not Going To Jail

He commited crimes, but since Elliot Spitzer happened to be the governor, he gets off the hook. The US attorney in Manhattan had this to say:

In light of the policy of the Department of Justice with respect to prostitution offenses and the longstanding practice of this Office, as well as Mr. SPITZER’s acceptance of responsibility for his conduct, we have concluded that the public interest would not be further advanced by filing criminal charges in this matter.

You know if it were me, I doubt accepting responsibility for my conduct would keep me out of jail.
