Elliot Spitzer: Your Personal Shopper

TigerHawk has a good question about New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer and his new taxpayer-funded plan to help New Yorkers shop:

If I were a New York politician other than Eliot Spitzer or a taxpayer in that state (actually, I am, come to think of it), I would want to know why this is the attorney general’s job. If this is within the mandate of his office, what isn’t?

Hat tip to Professor Bainbridge.
