Serving The Common Good By Exploiting People In Cockroach Infested Basements
"Then I will try once again, outside of politics, to serve the common good and to move toward the ideals and solutions which I believe can build a future of hope and opportunity for us and for our children."
-Spitzer Resignation Speech, 3/12/08.
I hope this future of "serving the common good" doesn't include a stint at Paul Weiss, as was suggested by the New York Post. Paul Weiss is a shitty law firm that shoves heavily indebted lawyers into cockroach infested basements, makes people work 14 hour days, pays crappy wages and benefits, shamelessly violates labor laws, and fires anyone who complains to the media about dangerous working conditions and potentially unethical billing practices. If Spitzer does eventually wind up working there, at least he will be able to afford more of his high priced hookers without having to rely on anymore of his daddy's trust fund money.
