Spitzer's main Irish aide has been Marty Mack, a hard working lawyer. Mack is currently a deputy state attorney general and has been a constant by Spitzer's side in recent years. He is very popular in Irish circles.
Spitzer Hated By Some
A LEADING Irish figure on Wall Street who was once a target of a Spitzer investigation left no doubt how he was feeling when the Spitzer story broke.
"Couldn't happen to a nicer guy," said the businessman, who understandably wishes to remain anonymous. He spent $750,000 clearing his firm's name, and no charges were ever filed.
He says his firm went through hell trying to fight the unsubstantiated charges. "I think he was the embodiment of a politician who was ready to do anything, hang anyone for the sake of his career," the businessman added.
Another leading Irish businessman who dislikes Spitzer stated, "He was the worst kind of publicity seeking politician I've ever come across. I know so many people he ran out of business who had broken no laws but he just wanted to make his name out of hounding them."
