Question for those in the political know

If Spitzer does resign, does his superdelegate vote go the Liutenant Governor who would then be the new Governor? It's very possible that he is an Obama supporter.

They are BOTH already Super Delegates and both pledged to Clinton. Since no one would take over for the LTGov and thus gain a Super Delegate role... Clinton would just lose a delegate if Spitz resigns.

Spitzer Spoils Clintonís Delegate Count
Susan Davis reports on the presidential race.

If New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigns, as is widely anticipated, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton will be down one superdelegate. The scandal-tainted governor and his Lt. Gov. David Paterson currently are two of the roughly 800 superdelegates who will also cast ballots at the August nominating convention. Both are public backers of Clinton.

In this August 2007 photo, Hillary Clinton and Eliot Spitzer appeared at a news conference on childrenís health care in New York. (Associated Press)
If Spitzer resigns, New York succession laws provide for Paterson to assume the role of governor until the term expires in 2010. Hereís the rub: succession law also provides for the president of the state senate to become lieutenant governor. That man is Joseph Bruno, a Republican and political enemy of Spitzer.

It is safe to say that Bruno will not be casting a ballot at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

The Democratic National Committee today confirmed that New York would lose Spitzerís superdelegate slot. His resignation at this point seems inevitable. The New York Sun reported today that the governor is using his resignation as a potential bargaining chip with federal prosecutors to avoid criminal charges.
