SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- Widespread disgust over the alleged adultery and prostitution involvement of Democratic New York Governor Eliot Spitzer shows the America still has a moral compass, according to West Coast pro-family organization Campaign for Children And Families.

In reaction to the federal complaint implicating Spitzer in a prostitution ring, Campaign for Children and Families President Randy Thomasson said, "Character matters. A person's 'private life' matters. What is inside eventually shows on the outside. The reason that America is disgusted with the alleged prostituting lifestyle of Eliot Spitzer is because America's moral compass is still working. Fortunately, the United States has not forgotten how to blush."

Despite some viewing Spitzer as a "moral authority," noting he had instituted a "moral code" to clean up Wall Street and fight organized crime, Spitzer apparently has no moral code in sexual matters. More than any governor, Spitzer has tried to destroy the man-woman marriage definition and to license homosexual "marriages." As Attorney General, he harassed pro-life crisis pregnancy centers.

On Monday, as the alleged prostitution involvement was breaking, Spitzer was scheduled to speak to New York's largest pro-abortion organization, Family Planning Advocates, which supports unlimited tax-funded abortions, without regard to a girl's age or the number of tax-funded abortions in a calendar year.

"Spitzer has embraced anti-family public policies since day one," said Thomasson. "Is it any surprise that his so-called 'private' policies are also destructive to his own family? His immoral practices have made him unfit for public office. It's sad that his wife stood next to him, instead of distancing herself to show her real hurt and disapproval. As Dina Matos McGreevey would tell you, this 'stand by your political man' act is a sad, choreographed charade."
