Feds: We Cut No Deal With Eliot Spitzer
Michael Garcia, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York issued a brief statement denying that his office has cut any deal with Gov. Eliot Spitzer.
In the days since the prostitution scandal broke, speculation abounded that the governor would seek a deal with federal prosecutors: He would resign immediately if the feds assured him that he would not face charges as a john or for the shady financial transactions he used to cover his tracks.
"There is no agreement between this Office and Governor Eliot Spitzer, relating to his resignation or any other matter," Garcia said in a statement.
