Gov Spitzer resigns, though plea deal uncertain

CNN has this updated story on NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer's resignation today.  Here is a passage from the story that should interest criminal justice fans:

Spitzer's lawyers were in discussions Wednesday with the U.S. attorney's office in New York, trying to negotiate a plea deal to avoid prosecution, a source with knowledge of the discussions said. However, U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia in New York issued a statement saying, "There is no agreement between this office and Gov. Eliot Spitzer relating to his resignation or any other matter."
