Spitzer's friends, cont'd

Not to pile on New York AG Eliot Spitzer -- well, okay, maybe a little bit -- but the New York Times is asking why he has chosen to devote his crusading efforts almost entirely to correcting private-sector behavior, and scarcely at all to cleaning up the ethical catastrophe that is New York state government, widely seen as the most dysfunctional in the nation. And Tigerhawk has reprinted (via Bainbridge) excerpts from a scathing letter to the editor published in Business Insurance, from a former insurance executive, Tom Harvey, who charges that after Marsh agreed to hire Spitzer pal Michael Cherkasky as CEO (see Oct. 29), Spitzer altered a key negotiating position in a way favorable to Marsh.
