Oh, wait. Not all of Spitzer's targets are keeping as quiet as Grasso, Blodget and Greenberg. Last night CNBC caught up with Ken Langone, a former director of the New York Stock Exchange, near the Tribeca Grill. He wasn't exactly reserved about his feelings for the soon-to-be former New York governor.
"I had no doubt about his lack of character and integrity," Langone said on a taped interview that was aired on Squawk Box this morning. "It would only be a matter of time. I didn't think he would do it this soon or the way he did. But I know for sure he went to a post office and bought $2,800 worth of money orders to send to a hooker."
Langone told CNBC that Spitzer was a hypocrite. "The number of people that he besmirched, the number of people whose reputations were earned that he soiled is horrible," Langone said.
Ken Langone has long been one of the most well-connected men on Wall Street. He was forced to resign from the board of the NYSE when targeted by Spitzer, who was then investigating the pay package of NYSE chief executive Dick Grasso.
