NYPost: Spitzer to Resign Within the Hour

We've heard this before from 'sources' and it hasn't panned out, but for what it's worth:

Gov. Eliot Spitzer has decided to resign and will begin notifying top state officials of his decision just after 9 a.m., The Post has learned.

Word began circulating of his decision in state political circles just minutes ago, which came after what one source called "an agonizing night," as the governor's wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, and the governor's lawyers went over a possible plea deal offered by federal prosecutors, sources told The Post.

There you go.

Also from the Post, how the feds caught Spitzer.

Update - The resignation will come at 11:30 a.m., but won't be effective until Monday, to give Lt. Gov. Paterson more time to prepare for the transition.
