In a lengthy interview that aired on PBS early Wednesday, disgraced former governor-turned-comptroller-candidate Eliot Spitzer was asked to explain the sex scandal that forced him to resign from office five years ago.
“We have within us all drives, urges which should be tempered, controlled, modulated, held in check that I did not. And I don’t know if I can or should be a whole lot more specific than that. But that is what led to what was obviously a violation of responsibility, oath, loyalty–many terms could apply to it,” he told the Charlie Rose Show‘s guest host Mark Halperin during the interview.
