Clinton will lose a Superdelegate in Spitzer

via USA Today

NBC News' First Read blog notes that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer -- who has been accused of meeting with a prostitute -- is a "super delegate" for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton at next summer's Democratic National Convention.

"Should Spitzer resign," First Read reports, "the number of super delegates will simply be subtracted by one, since there's no provision in New York for a lieutenant governor to be replaced until the next election."

The state's lieutenant governor, David Paterson, is also a Clinton super delegate.
