Eliot Spitzer — Client Nine — is now forever known as “The Empire State Governor John” — after getting caught up in an FBI/IRS sex ring sting where it was discovered he appeared to be cheating on the wishes of his wife while smashing the dreams of his three daughters and vetoing voter faith by simply seeking sexual release with a call girl.
Orgasming wasn’t cheap.
The “lesser” hookers were paid a thousand dollars an hour.
Better prostitutes cost three times that amount.
Plus expenses and travel time.
Is it a proper public punishment that Elliot Spitzer be forced from office because of his private sexual peccadilloes?
believe Spitzer crafted his own downfall because he ran as the “law and
order governor” and if you run a sanctimonious campaign that attacks
the morality of your political opponents, you then invite scrutiny in
every part of your life — and that includes your bedroom and where
your penis can be found 24 hours a day.
Spitzer’s political opponents are dancing on his grave today — I am
more reserved in that his punishment will never fit the alleged crime
— but when the morality wolves are clawing at the door of one of their
own, the only satisfactory end is the lapping up after the bloodshed.
