Dirty Laundry Stowed…For Now

As I posted before, Governor Spitzer was between a rock and a hard place when it came to Darren Dopp, his aide that was placed on “indefinite” leave after the Trooper Gate story broke. Spitzer could either run Dopp off the reservation and risk him airing the Gov’s dirty laundry or hire him back and face a severe credibility question. As it turns out, the dirty laundry was scary enough to warrant rehiring Dopp, likely near his old salary of $175,000 per year.

If you flash back to August 3rd, Dopp’s lawyer did some clever public relations work and made sure reporters included in their stories that Dopp felt he was being scapegoated for the scandal and is willing to testify.

“What happened to Darren is just not fair,” said Dopp’s lawyer. “Darren is getting screwed.”

No sir. The people of New York are.
