Spitzer to be sworn in at midnight Promises reform and renewed energy

Elizabeth Benjamin Times Union

"ALBANY Democrat Eliot Spitzer, who has pledged to shake up state government through reform and renewed energy, was expected to be sworn in at midnight Sunday as New York's 54th governor in a private ceremony by the judge with whom he began his legal career two decades ago.

U.S. District Court Justice Robert W. Sweet was on tap to administer the oath of office at the executive mansion to his former clerk, Spitzer, who won the Nov. 7 gubernatorial election against Republican John Faso with an historic 69 percent of the vote.
Spitzer, 47, clerked for Sweet after he graduated from Harvard in 1984. He worked in private legal practice and in the Manhattan district attorney's office from 1986-1992. Spitzer was elected state attorney general in 1998 and re-elected to that office in 2002." For the rest of this well researched interesting article...
