Spitzer or Pawlenty: Who Did Greater Damage to his State?

KTLK-FM Morning Host Chris Baker posed an interesting question today:

Did New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's practice of engaging in prostitution do more tangible harm to the people of New York than Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty's advocacy of, and signing into law, onerous government regulations and spending based on the junk science of global warming has done to Minnesota?

Spitzer's behavior was disgusting and he should be made to face the full consequences of his actions. Pawlenty's actions were not criminal but will result in real consequences that will be paid for by the people of Minnesota for years to come if the legislation is not repealed and corrected.

The press is having a field day with the Spitzer situation, especially since he has run on a "corruption crusader" platform. Perhaps the press should start doing its job and call Pawlenty out with the same zeal for the good of the people of Minnesota.

Interesting question. Considering all of the consequences of their actions going forward I have to say that Pawlenty did more damage. Spitzer hurt his own reputation and maybe his party's but both can be rehabilitated over time. The ethanol subsidies and energy mandates will do long term damage to the economy and will drive businesses and people out of the state. And it will be a hard sell to get them back.
