    Spitzer Sues 'Spyware' Co. (Direct Revenue LLC) Over Pop-Up Ads
    He is on a roll.........


    ALBANY, N.Y. - New York's attorney general sued another Internet pop-up advertising company Tuesday, accusing it of secretly installing malicious programs on personal computers and sending ads through "spyware" that is already installed.

    Eliot Spitzer said Direct Revenue LLC has installed millions of pop-up ad programs that also monitor the Internet activity of users. He asked a state court to stop the practice.

    "These applications are deceptive and unfair to consumers, bad for businesses that rely on efficient networks to do their jobs, and bad for online retailers that need consumers to trust and enjoy their online experience," Spitzer said. "We will continue to side with consumers in their fight for control of their desktops."

    You guys don't want him as President and it is said that a Lot of NY Democrats want him to be Gov. That Tom guy is way better NY Dems Elliot is power Hungry and will ruin NY. We either need to keep a Republican as Gov or that Tom guy.

    Elliot is just headline hungry. Gov can't be headline hungry he has to want to tackle the little problems too. But if it doesn't get Elliot the headline he won't bother with it.

    If you don't toot your own horn, who will? I don't know that much about him but it sure wouldn't surprise me to see him as President, someday.

    But he does help other things as well, but those things that he does that aren't headline grabbing... oddly enough don't grab headlines...
