I got a question:

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

What exactly is Spitzer apologizing about? In today's society, how is this an issue?


Not saying I personally don't think it is - I believe that marriage is sacred.


I just find the logic behind this guy's resignation and the skewering of his reputation - given the previous responses of our society to people like movie stars or Presidents in similar situations - to be odd. 


What really is at issue here? Is it that he cheated on his wife, or that he paid for sex? Or both?

And... how is it that this is any less embarrassing than one of our presidents getting frisky with an intern?
