"Extortion applauded"



That's Ramesh Ponnuru's two-word summary of an item by Noam Scheiber of the New Republic, expressing satisfaction over the prospect that "the financial services firms Spitzer has hounded as attorney general [will] get on board and pony up money" to his campaign for governor, both "to buy themselves some much-needed goodwill" and recognizing that Spitzer will be "in a potentially even more powerful position to hurt them as governor".
