Posted on 03/10/2008 2:33:07 PM PDT by COUNTrecount
What We Know About Client 9 From a redacted copy of the sealed complaint about the Emperor's Club prostitution ring, we were able to extract the following details about Client 9's dealings with the organization, and his Washington liaison. Client 9, according to the Times, is the one alleged to be Governor Eliot Spitzer. We have no official confirmation of this. But below are the things that we do know about this mysterious player from the legal papers: He refused to use a "traditional wire transfer" to pay the organization but arranged for an Emperor's Club girl to take Amtrak down to Washington for a visit. Client 9 seems to have used the service before. He also thought the choice of his prostitute, "Kristen," was "great" and "wonderful." The agency charged him $4,100 for "Kristen"'s visit. The tryst took place in room 871 of a Washington hotel. On a side note, the domain www.room871.com has already been purchased. Client 9 was willing to pay "extra" for "better" services. "Kristen" was a pretty brunette, petite, five-foot-five and 105 pounds. The fee ended up being $4,300, with the "extras." "Kirsten" did not think Client 9 was difficult, but he might have asked her to do things ("basic things") that "you might not think were safe."
Soon to be?
Been former for a long time. Entire generations of threads have been born and have died since this.
Well, if you're gonna pay $4100.00 anyway, may as well get the "extras."
On a side note, the domain www.room871.com has already been purchased.
Did he resign?
this guy, Cadillac Deval, and Gov. McFeeley should all be eye openers to the rest of America
wake up people vote against Dems or we will have much more of these schlubs
Given his proclivity for "un-safe sex", it sounds like Spitzer arranged for an Emperor's Club girl to take the train.
Are you claiming that Spitzer has already resigned?
Don’t count on it. Mr. Spitzer may be the worst governor in New York’s history since Lord Cornbury, but modern-day Democrats don’t have enough shame to be driven out of office, even if caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy. Just ask Barney Frank.
Okay so the guy likes back door, BIG DEAL.
Spitzer has NOT resigned.
Spitzer Apologizes, Does Not Resign
Washington Post, United States - 1 hour ago
New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer apologized to his family and the public monday, but did not elaborate on the reported links to a prostitution ring. ...
CBS News in New York is confirming that Spitzer may resign tonight.
Some threads said he did. Would have been going on two hours ago. Back in ancient prehistory.
That probably means unprotected sex, but it could also mean......ahem.......other things...........
Yes, but who bought the site and why?
He will tonight or by the end of this week.
This goose is cooked, and it couldn't have happened to a better person.
PARTY ON WALL STREET!!!
I am certain we will all have the opportunity to see a lot of Kristen in the near future. She’s probably a graduate student and will write a book on her experiences as a sex worker before heading off to the London School of Economics.
There were entire threads saying he did. What can you believe anymore?
Maybe one of those nifty GPS navigation systems that highlights points of interest while "driving" ;-)
Boy, talk about a CYA statement....... Hell, I might win the Lotto too.
I don’t quite understand Democrat policy. It’s OK to take it by force, like BJ Clinton. It’s OK to kill for it, like Teddy the Swimmer. But its not OK to pay for it. What gives?
Soon to be former? That’s what they said about The Most Ethical President In History.Unless he’s indicted watch for him to ride it out.Can you say “out of control investigators”?
Trust me, he's a goner. This is newspeak, a preliminary statement, then it'll be official.
“Kristen” became uncomfortable when #9 insisted that she call him Bill and he referred to her as Hillary.
I'm also very surprised; I figured he'd wind up doing something like the last governor of NJ.
Democrats don’t resign over sex scandals. Spitzer will hang tough. I predict he will play the disability card - as in “sexual addiction” - and throw himself on the therapeutic mercy of the public. As to criminal charges, he was just a john. Johns generally don’t get indicted. And he was probably careful to use his own money to pay Karen and Temeka or whoever. So, basically, the argument will be “this is my private life, so butt out”.
He doesn’t have to resign. He’s a Democrat and it was only sex!
He violated the Mann Act,...paid for her transportation across state lines....
Delayed opening on the upside tomorrow morning!
I wonder which big name Dems, are clients 1 through 8?
I can't imagine that a high-end prostitute would risk unprotected sex for a mere $200 more. Musta been the other things. Sheesh.
MM (in TX)
LOL. Has anybody since Chuck Berry actually been prosecuted under the Mann Act?
The first caller to Hannity’s show was a woman who said what does it matter to me what he does in his time off, as long as he’s doing his job well? The fact that he broke the law meant nothing to her. I suspect there must be plenty more like her in NY. If there were to be a “do over” election tomorrow I’d bet Spitzer would win again. NY is too far gone.
Speaking of Hannity, he said he had a run in with Spitzer too after the latter had been a guest on his show. He didn’t get into detail but I suppose it was something like what Spitzer normally does when he gets criticized. He threatens his detractor with legal action, and tries to cut off free speech. I hope the governor is not monitoring what I say here....
I’d be shocked if Spitzer resigned.
Kwame Kilpatrick (”I did not have text with that woman”) used his former Chief of Staff as his booty call, conspired with her to have a deputy police chief and two other well-respected cops FIRED for following orders to investigate him, lied under oath and cost the city of Detroit taxpayers over $8.2 million in a backdoor settlement.
Um...he’s STILL mayor. He believes he’s on “an assignment from God.” HIS words.
Who knows, Spitzer might find religion in the next two hours. He’s arrogant enough to try to tell God what to do.
I’m betting he WON’T resign. Why should he, it was just about sex, right? (sarc off)
I doubt it's anything that simple. You don't need to pay $4,300 for that.
I’m not even gonna ask how Lord Cornbury liked his, uh, recreation.
[Elliot] Spitzer (D) Is Linked to Prostitution Ring

But who is Number One?
...all of this is pending confirmation, you understand.
This reporter screwed up.
If you read the actual transcipt, Client 9 gave her $4,100, but 2,000 was for a credit for next time. To avoid all the hassle they had getting the money this time.
In other words, it seems Spitzer got screwed for 2,100 and screwed out of 2,000.
I picked up on that right away during his "news conference."
He referred to a "private matter" and alluded to continuing his agenda for NY at the beginning of his remarks.
Add to that he's a Democrat, and I'll be very surprised if he quits.
on page 2 (27) of the smoking gun document, client #9 mentions he has a $400 credit. He was a regular.
Spitzer’s endorsement of Hillary makes even more sense now.
