Prosecutor: Spitzer Ordered Dirty Tricks

ALBANY, N.Y. -- A prosecutor says former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer angrily ordered an aide to smear a political rival _ something Spitzer denies.
Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares says Spitzer cursed at former aide Darren Dopp and told him to release records that could embarrass Senate Republican leader Joseph Bruno.
But Soares says it doesn't appear Spitzer broke any laws. This is the second time the prosecutor has reviewed the case.
Spitzer resigned earlier this month amid allegations that he was a client in a high-priced prostitution ring.
