Someone needs to look closely at how this all came down. Was it really a routine investigation into suspicious money transfers that led to these revelations? Call me cynical, but I suspect that this is more political monkey business on the part of the Justice Department, the FBI and the IRS, together with the collusion of the banking industry. Spitzer made himself into an attractive target. He was the most high-profile Democratic governor in the country, and was the nemesis of Wall Street. Is it too much of a stretch to wonder if his accounts and transactions were being subjected to more than ordinary scrutiny?
