SPITZER'S LEGACY: A $3.6M PROBE TAB
By BRENDAN SCOTT
April 13, 2008 -- Eliot Spitzer's political and sexual shenanigans are costing taxpayers upwards of $3.6 million.
This month, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo launched his second look at the Dirty Tricks saga: a far-reaching probe into whether Spitzer ordered the State Police to gather intelligence on Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno. It should double the estimated $150,000 the attorney general's office spent on the initial report that sparked the Spitzer's troubles last year.
Meanwhile, the State Investigation Commission has launched an investigation of the investigations - those by the attorney general, the state Senate, the state inspector general, the Albany district attorney and the state Public Integrity Commission. That'll cost at least $70,000.
But the largest price tag belongs to the federal government's eight-month prostitution probe of the Emperor's Club VIP escort service - with its surveillance, raids and multiple wiretaps likely costing $2 million, The Post found.

Spitzer is loaded. If he can pay for hookers, he can pay for this bill.
Spitzer seems to have probe problems aplenty.
From a Detroiter’s perspective that is cheap!
correction, his father is loaded. Spitzer stays on 5th ave, right across from central park, rent free, in one of his dad’s buildings. Actually saw him today, sitting in the park, right south of the Met Art Museum.

Nothing better than taking in the city before being placed behind bars...

The worst thing has happened. New York State has now been dragged by the rat to the gutter formerly reserved for New Jersey. I guess being so close to the most corrupt rat infested state in America made it inevitable that NYS would get infected as well.
