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.”

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.

Mr. Spitzer, a first-term Democrat who pledged to bring ethics reform and end the often seamy ways of Albany, is married with three children.

Does this mean Spitzer is a client or also an owner?

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.

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?????

Definitely Presidential material enhancement material in the democrat party.
He’s obviously doing this to get the VP spot on Obamas ticket.

NEVER piss off Hillary! The Spitzer thing was the beginning of her downfall.

A day after she appeared to struggle to give her views on the subject, Hillary Rodham Clinton offered support today for Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s effort to award New York driver’s 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. Clinton’s 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 administration’s failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform,’” her campaign said. Mrs. Clinton’s aides said her statement was intended to signal that she broadly supported Mr. Spitzer’s goal of awarding driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. Mr. Spitzer initially proposed a blanket program of awarding full-fledged driver’s 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. Clinton’s advisers said that she had not studied either plan, and was not specifically endorsing either of them.

I’ll bet it’s of the gay variety.

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.
