Recent gubernatorial disgraces in the tri-state area:
In 2004, New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey resigns, calling himself "a gay American" and admitting his liaison with a man he had appointed to a sensitive state post for which the man was not qualified.
That same year, Connecticut Gov. John Rowland resigned from office in the wake of a corruption investigation, pleading guilty to a federal conspiracy charge. He goes on to to serve time in a federal pen.
Today, the Republican Governors Association -- formerly headed by Rowland -- calls on New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer to resign.
"The American people are tired of corrupt and hypocritical politicians," said Nick Ayers, RGA's executive director, in a statement. "The governor of New York is just another in the long list of politicians that have failed their constituents."
