GOV. ELIOT SPITZER: progressive politics that would rebuild new york and create opportunity fall -- for all. we sought to bring real change to new york, and that will continue. today, want to briefly address a private matter. i have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family and violates my or any sense of right and wrong. i apologize first and most importantly to my family. i apologize to the public for my -- who my promised better. i do not believe that politics is about individuals in the long run. it is about ideas, the public good, in doing what is best for the state of new york. but i have disappointed and failed to live up to the standard i expected of myself. i must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family. i will not be taking questions. thank you very much. i will report doubt -- back to you in short order. thank you very much.
