'New York Governor spent $85,000 on sex'
Herald Sun ^ | 12 March 2008

Posted on 03/12/2008 2:45:15 AM PDT by Aussie Dasher

NEW York's Governor spent up to $US80,000 ($85,000) on prostitutes who he asked to not wear a condom, it has been reported, as sordid details emerged in the sex scandal that threatens to hound him from office.

Eliot Spitzer became embroiled in the scandal on Tuesday when it was reported that he was linked to a US probe into a prostitution ring.

Mr Spitzer was caught on a listening device spending more than $4000 at the Emperor's Club call girl service.

Anonymous officials involved with the case have now been reported by the Associated Press as saying that Mr Spitzer had spent as much as $US80,000 with the service.

It is not clear over what time period that would have been, but the $4000 was reported to have paid for one night with a prostitute named Kristen with credit left over for future sessions.

That suggests Mr Spitzer made at least a couple of dozen visits to the prostitution service.

On the night of the visit with Kristen, Mr Spitzer booked two hotel rooms - one for him and one for her. He then slipped away from his security agents and met her in her room.

>>NEW York’s Governor spent up to $US80,000 ($85,000) on prostitutes who he asked to not wear a condom<<

That’s either some really bad writing or else we are talking about boy prostitutes, not girls.

Kind of an awkward opening sentence...unless Eliot has something else to tell us, that is.

I wondered the same thing. LOL! My husband assures me this guy is a Demonrat! I pay more attention to the color of Britney Spears toenail polish than I do to NY politics. Those folks are just so “out there”-—almost as bad as California-—minus Berkley, of course, they're in a class by themselves!

A powerful, famous man with an intelligent, beautiful wife pays the price of a small home for sex? What’s wrong with this picture?

It sounds like Spitzer spent $80,000 just with the Emporer’s Club. I have heard he also used other prostitution services.

$85,000? Heck I’ve easily spent at least that on sex, which tells you how expensive a happy marriage is- for me at least.

I thought he could ride this out as the dems would say "it's all just about sex," but if he wasn't using a condom ....

Next it'll come out he liked to smoke a cigarette afterwards. He's toast.

"Dang! All it cost me when I was single was a good meal and a few drinks"

When I was stationed outside of Tokyo in early 60's, it was "reported" (as I would not know from personal experience, of course, lol) that the price for a "quickie" was about $1.75 and if you wanted the "hostess with the misters" to "luv you long-time" i.e., all night long, it was a whopping, $5.00.

It was much the same in other places I visited including Hong Kong, Manila, Saigon, Bangkok, etc.

Of course that was a long time ago

All kidding aside, as a Seasoned Citizen who has been married twice and who has "been around," I can only wonder what is so special about a "working girl," that she can command that kind of remuneration?

I am reminded of a saying I have heard over the years remarked by men regarding women, who would withhold their affections for any various reason, and that was "Honey, 'that's' not made of gold and the gold rush is over."

Bad writing. He told the female prostitutes that he did not want to wear a condom on his Gubernatorial member.

He’s not paying just for the sex or for them to go away. He’s paying for something special. It could be a number of thing - bi-sex, S&M, tower of power, strangulation. Otherwise, if it was just straight sex, a mistress on the side would be fine.

The NY Post has a picture of a hooker on the front page today. I don't know if it is the hooker, but it is hard for me to believe that this woman could be guilty of anything...

The genie has really gotten out of the bottle on this one. The longer Spithead tries to hang on the worse this is going to get.

His wife telling him not to resign is complete stupidity.

Which raises an interesting point: perhaps she knew he was getting his rocks off in a particular way elsewhere, or at least tacitly encouraged him or condoned it.

The way I was looking at issue.

Seperate point I made somewhere last night.
Timing and way MSM is hyping this issue.
No one is looking at Obama or Hillary’s issues.
Obama is tied to Rezko in Chicago trial.
Isnt Hillary’s deposition coming up soon.

Usual throw high profile dem under the bus to distract from top of totem pole issues

Scarry that those things cross your mind. My guess is that he wanted a variety of women, and a mistress is not variety.

[But did he get value for money???]

My question is, was he using taxpayers monies to pay the prostitutes. If so, is this not illegal. And why do democrats and rinos think that the taxpayers of America must support them. George Washington and the early founding fathers never used taxpayers monies and expected that no politician be paid for their services and Congress only met 2 weeks out of the year. And that was a very good thing.

Until I hear it from her lips, I don’t believe it. She is a lawyer herself, and if she is smart, she will be setting all the chess pieces onto the board for a hefty divorce settlement.
Just exposing me to STD’s would be enough reason for me to give the mister the old heave-ho.

Sounds like the writer knew what he was writing about ~ that's undoubtedly based on the 40 page FBI memorandum.

At $4000 a hit that'd probably be a "boy" ~ underage most likely.

No one else seems to have been caught up in this uncovering of the Emperor Club operating in DC no less.

What the cops are saying now is that they started investigating Spitzers structuring arrangements because they thought he was moving large sums of money around to conceal bribes. It was in the process of that investigation that they stumbled upon Emperor VIP.

So, in a twist to the usual pattern, the Spitzer wound up getting his hookers in trouble, instead of the other way 'round.
