NEW YORK (AP) - A law enforcement official has told The Associated Press that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's involvement in a prostitution ring was caught on a federal wiretap.

The official says Spitzer is identified in court papers as "Client 9," and the wiretap was part of an investigation that opened in the last few months.

The official says the New York governor met last month with at least one woman in a Washington hotel. The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

He maybe called as a Prosecutor witness if he's not indicted himself in which case he could take the 5th.

It is one ambitious “public servant” that pays over 4k for a prostitute.

I’m just trying to point out the implications of this being caught by the Federal wiretaps program. One of the reasons Dems oppose them so fervently, they might get caught....

SEX SELLS! Even if the culprit is a Democrat. Sex stories have legs, sell lots of print, air time . . .

What if?

Headline: "Democrat governor gives time, money, advice, secrets to Al Qaeda leading up to 9/11 and beyond."

One MSM news cycle and that's it. The employees of the MSM wouldn't want to appear to be taking sides (i.e., helping Republicans) in domestic politics or against radical Islam.

Talks about his needs being something that might not seem healthy to the call girl or healthy for her to do to him.

Im picturing the 12v Sodomizer1000, a pulsating piston of p[assion.

This,

I suspect,

is EXACTLY why the left is so worried about the terrorist surveillance program.
