Oh Dear…

New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer has landed in hot water after his campaign paid Google to link searches for "AIG" to a website — www.spitzer2006.com — promoting his bid for governor. "Somebody didn’t use good judgment," his office said. "It isn’t appropriate to do this with something like the ongoing AIG investigation." Yeah, that would be right.

The link was taken down after media inquiries yesterday, Financial Times reported.

Apparently while busy probing Wall Street and the insurance industry, Washington Post reported Mr. Spitzer eked out enough time to raise $7.9 million for his planned 2006 run for governor.

As the saying goes, nobody is perfect. But maybe he’s just showing us the power of using the web to raise funds from the masses while taking on the powerful?
