New York's first lady a North Carolina native

The wife of embattled New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has some ties to North Carolina.

Silda Spitzer grew up in Concord, where her father was a
hospital administrator.

She attended Meredith College in Raleigh, and went from there to
Harvard Law School and a career in mergers and aquisitions.

She married Spitzer, a fellow Harvard Law graduate, in 1987, and
the couple have three daughters: Elyssa, now 17, Sarabeth, 15, and
Jenna, 13.

Since the mid-1990s, Silda Spitzer has been a stay-at-home
mother and political spouse.

Law enforcement officials say the New York governor spent tens
of thousands of dollars with a prostitution service over an
extended period of time.

    Ms. Spitzer appears to be a very nice lady. I am so sorry that she has been betrayed by her husband's reckless,illegal behavior. I wish Ms. Spitzer and her daughters well.

    If wives would take care of business at home maybe the husband wouldn't stray. But then some guys are just pervs.

    Look at this guy, he is guilty no doubt. He kind of reminds me of the Dan Akroid when he played "Dr. Detroit"
