ALBANY - Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month, according to a person briefed on the federal investigation.
An affidavit in the federal investigation into a prostitution ring said that a wiretap recording captured a man identified as Client 9 on a telephone call confirming plans to have a woman travel from New York to Washington, where he had reserved a hotel room. The person briefed on the case identified Mr. Spitzer as Client 9.
Mr. Spitzer today made a brief public appearance during which he apologized for his behavior, and described it as a private matter.
I have acted in a way that violates my obligation to my family and violates my or any sense of right or wrong, said Mr. Spitzer, who appeared with his wife Silda at his Manhattan office. I apologize first and most importantly to my family. I apologize to the public to whom I promised better.
What, no (D) after his name?
Thats OK. Prostitution ring is nothing...Now tapping your foot in a bathroom, now thats news!
Kick the idiot out.
So much for his promise to clean up ethics in NY state government. Of course, he’ll get kid glove treatment from the media. They’ll say it was just about sex, right? I hate liberals and their complicit media friends.
Yep. Time to resign. Only in NY/NJ can a politician recover from this.
I bet the Dimsascraps in NY would still reelect him.
Did he take Astro-Physics with Kawame Kilpatrick?
Man these two are a couple of rocket-scientist if I have ever seen one.... (sarcasm off)....
I’ll bet it’s of the gay variety.
It’s only about sex - can’t we just MoveOn?
(do I need a ‘/s’)
Chris Matthews will deny this.
Involved in a prostitution ring? Was he a hooker?
Involved how? Customer or pimp (or prostitute)?
Makes sense. He’s always been a publicity whore. Like attracts like.
OMGosh! this is precious.........CAUGHT in the act....I hope this makes him a one term governor.
LOL, is that what they are calling democrat fund raisers these days?
I wouldn’t be surprised! LOL
Hey, as the saying goes, as long as he was not caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy, a politician can beat the rap.
Was he a client or product?
Does this mean Spitzer is a client or also an owner?
yes, it is called the Democratic Party
Wouldn't it be fun if it turns out he was a catcher....
(Hopefully) good riddance - I was worried that this poster boy for the nanny state would become a national threat.
It's only about sex right? That's cool, isn't it? I thought that was cool now. At least for Democrats.
Involved in a prostitution ring? Was he a hooker?”
Do you suppose he will claim to have been “undercover” for some sort or investigation????
“Do as I say, not as I do” (or who I do, or where, etc)
“What, no (D) after his name?”
It’s in the second paragraph of the story.
unseemly --> Hope his confession includes an immediate resignation...
This is a tad more significant than the toe tapping Larry Craig. Also, many prostitutes are teenagers. Doesn't this put him right up there with Foley who was merely emailing pages???
e.g. Did Spitzer engage in quality control?????
This has got to be some kind of joke. Gov of New York caught up in a prostitution ring.
Eliot “Spitzer Swallows”?
Ok, that was gross. If you redact this post, please don’t ban me. But you know someone is going to say it :-)
I hope a power hungry prosecutor doesn’t throw the book at him! Nah!
What did Larry Flynt know and when did he know it?
All Democrats and RINOs are prostitutes. Kick em all out.
i GUESS THIS IS SELF IMPOSED TERM LIMITS
Oh, he means another Prostitution Ring!
LOL let’s go see what the DUmp thinks of this
Was it as a customer or as an employee?
Kinda redundant saying a democrat is linked to a prostitution ring...
Definitely Presidential material enhancement material in the democrat party.
He’s obviously doing this to get the VP spot on Obamas ticket.
A day after she appeared to struggle to give her views on the subject, Hillary Rodham Clinton offered support today for Gov. Eliot Spitzers effort to award New York drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, as her campaign sought to contain potentially damaging fallout from what her own supporters saw as a tense and listless debate performance. Mrs. Clintons statement affirming her support of Mr. Spitzer in his office came less than a day after she offered a muddled and hesitant position on the bill, prompting a round of denunciations by her opponents. It signaled the extent to which her advisers viewed that moment as the biggest misstep she made in the debate, and one with long-term potential to undermine her candidacy. Senator Clinton supports governors like Governor Spitzer who believe they need such a measure to deal with the crisis caused by this administrations failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform, her campaign said. Mrs. Clintons aides said her statement was intended to signal that she broadly supported Mr. Spitzers goal of awarding drivers licenses to illegal immigrants. Mr. Spitzer initially proposed a blanket program of awarding full-fledged drivers licenses to illegal immigrants; in the face of sharp opposition from the Legislature, he backed off and presented a multi-tiered program system of awarding licenses to illegal immigrants. Mrs. Clintons advisers said that she had not studied either plan, and was not specifically endorsing either of them.
“a first-term Democrat who pledged to bring ethics reform”
How’s that working out for him?
Barney Frank had a gay prostitution ring running out of his apartment. His gay boyfriend was also running their prostitution ring out of a k-6 elementary school around the same time.
In other words, it ain't likely to hurt Spitzer.
Not true, you can add DC to that list as well where one Marion Barry was re-elected.
Democrat= Free Pass
Republican= Turn in your resignation
That’s the flow.
Isn’t this where they claim they were just conducting their own investigation?
