Beck on the Spitzer scandal: "Is it a coincidence that [the Spitzer prostitution scandal] happened as he goes after all of the banks and those on Wall Street—the rich and the powerful, with vast connections—and he says to them, 'I'm gonna take you down'?"

On General John R. Allen: "How did they get General [John R.] Allen's information? Remember, he gets in trouble because he goes over to Afghanistan, and, what happens? He said the administration is lying, that what's happening over in Afghanistan is not going well. All of a sudden his private emails are exposed. How did that happen?"

And on the David Petraeus affair: "How about General Petraeus? The guy who says, 'I'm gonna stand up in Benghazi.' All of a sudden his emails are released and we find out he's having an affair. Are you kidding me?"
