After graduating from Princeton in 1981, Spitzer went to Harvard Law, and the summer after his first year he worked for the New York attorney general's antitrust division, then headed by Lloyd Constantine.

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz was also forming a favorable impression of Spitzer at approximately this time and recently said of him: "He has a creative and innovative mind, and he always wants to do what's right."

Poor Eliot. Elected by a landslide in 2006 and crashed and burned like Jim Greevey! What is it with Democrats who self-destruct?

A one-day headline, so the media can get back to pimping for Obama.
If Hildabeast wants an exit strategy, the Clintons will pull the rug out from Spitzer, she will declare that NY needs her, withdraw from the presidential race and run for NY Gov.

Not clear if he will actually resign.

Just did a Google search:
http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&q=spitzer+resign&btnG=Search

and the stories are all over the place...“resigns”, “expected to resign”, “may resign”, “does not resign”, “likely to resign”, “should resign”...

My thoughts exactly. I know where my priorities lie.

1) Find out what the women looked like who could charge that much.

2) Find out more about this Spitzer dude’s hypocritical past fighting so-called “sex trafficking”.

If you do a Google search for Feminism and Sex Trafficking, you will find that both the left wing and non-libertarians on the right define it as all prostitution, no matter how voluntary, that involves crossing state or national boundaries.

They only spice up their propaganda by mentioning the much rarer cases where the women are doing things against their will (for instance, Condi Rice said something about 40,000 slaves being transported to Germany for the World Cup and the Germans ended up stopping only one van with 5 Polish women who wanted to do what they were planning to do).

I was in Turkey last week which is supposed to be the slave trading capital of the world. Tons of young women are working as prostitutes, but they seem to all have cell phones and designer clothes.

Spitzer deserves to fry because of his hypocrisy in fighting “sex trafficking” while planning to cheat on his wife. Why don’t both liberal and conservative politicians finally realize that men should have some backbone and be honest about what they want, instead of making things illegal because they fear that women voters might not like it if they don’t.

Of course, Marc Rudov is about to appear on Bill OReilly with comments of his own on how great the Spitzer marriage might have been (I have no comment or knowledge on that subject).

Back to the $5500 prostitutes: I was in Hamburg last week on business where I entered, out of curiousity, the most elite gentleman’s club in all of Germany.

I have never seen such attractive prostitutes in my life. But even with the low dollar, they were only $375 per hour.

I won’t cheat on my woman however. I chose properly unlike guys like Spitzer and Bill Clinton who probably got roped into marrying a feminist who could help them get elected as a Democrat.

Compare $4300 in Washington DC with $375 in Hamburg, Germany. The $375 is paid by German politicians and other celebrities who use the back entrance of the place I was writing about above.

It is not the physical attractiveness of the woman that is causing the price rise.

It is the fact that Americans are so politically wound up about “sex trafficking” and American male politicians have been bending over backwards to make sure men who “partake” (and men in general) are made to sound like the most evil beings on Earth.

The price difference is the price of hypocrisy.

That $3925 price difference was what Spitzer and his buddies thought would buy them “discretion” in a society where men are cut zero slack.

I want to see Spitzer put behind federal bars for “sex trafficking”.

At least until a federal judge finally admits that “sex trafficking” should be defined properly as “against the will of the prostitute” or transport of a minor across state lines for sexual purposes.

And at least until the feds admit that prostitution is a state level crime and not a federal matter.

I want this to stay in the news until then.

No way can Spitzer sell this is strictly a personal..He broke the law...

We'll see if he really is going to resign..Spitzer once prosecuted prostitution rings..was a self proclaimed steamroller to clean up the state..HYPOCRISY

There is a federal law called the Mann Act that prohibits transporting anyone across state lines for immoral purposes. That is what Spitzer will be accused of violating. He arranged and paid for a New York hooker to go to Washington D.C. to have sex with him. Because he paid for her transportation he is subject to prosecution AND IMPRISONMENT under the Mann Act. This dumbass was editor of the Harvard Law Review, deputy Manhattan D.A., and a two-term state Attorney General! You would think he would know about the Mann Act and know better than to pay for the woman’s train ticket!

Um, no.

And Clinton’s liasons with Monica were no less bad.

It’s perhaps to his credit that he resigns over this, if it is a personal scandal and not a corruption one,
I thought only Republicans did that.

Your post is very accurate:

1. He has NOT been indicted. He was apparently “mentioned” in some sealed “informational papers”, and it seems that some people automatically thought that meant “indicted”.

2. Peter King is right, too... Spitzer’s ONLY coin was his apparent “holier than every other politician”. Between the governorship bungles made earlier this year, and now this, it is clear to everyone that he’s just “politics as usual”.

3. Demodogs for the most part will forgive him, even those who are now claiming “if true, he has to resign.” BS. I heard so many of those fools saying that during the ‘Toon’s years, and not one of them ended up calling for his resignation, as Republicans did during Nixon.

Right now, there are many politicians in NYS who are saying the compulsory “if true, he should resign”, “I’m very disappointed”, “this reflects badly on all of us, but that is really not true: it was only his behavior” “though you are disappointed, you have to remember that the principles of the Demodog party haven’t changed”

I wish that all of them would resign.

I’m sure they’ll downplay his role in prosecuting others for this very crime. In fact, they’ll spin and say he really only went after the bosses.

If a republican did this, they’d be all over him cheating on his wife and calling him out for sayng this behavior is immorral.

The big thing is Spitzer put people in Jail for such behvior. So if the MSM gives him a pass (which they’ll try their best to do so) it will be obvious to nearly most everyone else regardless of their spin.
