Out of curiosity, what compelled you to dig up this old story about Silda Spitzer from 2006? Did you just fall into a wiki hole reading about corrupt NY politicians?

I was previously at a firm where associates of all levels routinely went over 3000 hours. Agreed that it's not a healthy long-term lifestyle.
