I am adding a new lawyer to my list legal heroes - New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer. Forbes Magazine's recent article about Spitzer entitled Witch Hunt shows why Eliot Spitzer is a modern day hero. Forbes by demonizing Spitzer, is legitimizing his work (similar to the way Democrats originally demonized Rush Limbaugh). Corporate America might not like the idea - because it never likes to pay for its wrongs - but the fact is that once the corruption and abuses are punished, it's easier for the American public to have faith in those businesses and want to invest in such businesses.
