Spitzer resigns, says he's 'deeply sorry'

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer New York Governor Eliot Spitzer

ALBANY, N.Y. -  Governor Spitzer says his resignation will take effect on Monday.Governor Spitzer said he's "deeply sorry" that he didn't live up to what was expected of him. He said he "sincerely" apologizes to every New Yorker. He added that, "to those that are given much, much is expected of them."

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer did officially announce his resignation at 8:48 a.m. Wednesday morning  from his New York City Office. He will be replaced by Lieutenant Governor David Paterson, who will become New York's first black governor.

With pressure mounting on Spitzer, investigators said Tuesday he was clearly a repeat customer who spent tens of thousands of dollars - perhaps as much as $80,000 - with the high-priced prostitution service over an extended period of time.

Spitzer and his family, meanwhile, remained secluded in their Fifth Avenue apartment, while Republicans began talking impeachment, and few if any fellow Democrats came forward to defend him.
