NEW YORK, NY (NBC) - New York Governor Elliot Spitzer is under fire for his admitted involvement in a prostitution ring.
Spitzer canceled his public events Monday after telling senior administration officials about his involvement.
He is the former New York Attorney General and ran for office on a pledge of ethics reform.
Monday's news follows the arrest last week of four people involved in a prostitution operation.
Federal officials have not named Spitzer as one of those involved in that case.
The governor is a first term Democrat, who is married and has three children.
