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.

That’s either some really bad writing or else we are talking about boy prostitutes, not girls.
Just makes the story a little better...
Kind of an awkward opening sentence...unless Eliot has something else to tell us, that is.
He’s a fool. Should have got interns.
Aw, ya beat me to it!
(Great minds think alike :)
Dang! All it cost me when I was single was a good meal and a few drinks...
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.
85Gs for the old in-out, in-out?
We need pics of the ho to ascertain guilt or innocence, your honor.
I’ll be staggered if it doesn’t appear soon!
Next it'll come out he liked to smoke a cigarette afterwards. He's toast.
Did he pay a carbon tax for the extra CO2 that he generated during coitus?
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."
You could to a nice Kitchen/Bathroom renovation for $85,000, which could work just as well...
You stay classy, Pilot...
Spitzer's wife better get checked out for STDs.
Omit the "good" part, and that was me also.
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.
That first sentence wouldn’t have gotten by my eighth grade English teacher. And the reporter is supposed to be a professional writer?
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...
His wife telling him not to resign is complete stupidity.
If he stepped out on that, the man is an idiot, as well as a criminal.
I speculated that he was using prostitutes be cause she did not go for his particular kink.
Tower of power???? Haven’t heard of that one before.
Wanna bet he never goes to jail? He knows how to deal with prosecutors.

“I’m sure he wanted anal sex without condoms,” Heidi Fleiss says, speculating but strangely confident. It was Spitzer’s ethical crusade and no-ho posturing that ...
IOW Poor Eliot got turned down by Silda when he wanted to go anal. All speculation of course
The bill for that could easily run to 2 cents.
A mistress implies an emotional attachment...waaaay to risky. Although, this way wasn’t all that safe either it appears.
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
The grass is always greener to some people.
What’s wrong with what he said? I think it’s funny (and true).
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.
His wife telling him not to resign is complete stupidity.”
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.
Are you saying that you got "more bang for your buck?"
At $4000 a hit that'd probably be a "boy" ~ underage most likely.
He’s too ugly for a mistress, and I mean really ugly. The only reason his halfway decent looking wife is hooked up with him is for the gravy train.
I did not mean to be critical of SkyPilot. I was just sharing his joke.
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.
