Spitzer: I Have Not Visited Prostitutes Since 2008

Spitzer: I Have Not Visited Prostitutes Since 2008 12:36 PM, Jul 24, 2013 • By MICHAEL WARREN

Eliot Spitzer, the former New York governor and New York City comptroller candidate, says he has not visited a prostitute since 2008, when it was revealed the Democrat was a client for a high-price prostitution ring. The Wall Street Journal reports:

A day after Anthony Weiner acknowledged that he continued sending lewd messages to women even after he resigned from Congress, former Gov. Eliot Spitzer said he hadn’t used prostitutes after his own downfall in 2008.

“Absolutely not,” Mr. Spitzer said when asked at a campaign stop at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal Wednesday if he had been with prostitutes after his resignation as governor of New York. “And we’re done answering those questions.”

Mr. Spitzer was on his second day of meeting with voters as he campaigns to become the next city comptroller. As he seeks forgiveness from voters for his own scandal, Mr. Spitzer said Wednesday that he did not think Tuesday’s revelations about Mr. Weiner would affect his candidacy.

“Look, I’m running my own campaign and have been since the day I got into this,” he said. ”So I’m gonna have no comment about that other than I’m gonna be talking to voters about what I have done and what my plans are.”

Spitzer: “I Have Not Visited Prostitutes Since 2008”

Now THAT is a ringing endorsement!

I wonder how he expressed that on his resume.

Amazing Rhythm Aces
Third Rate Romance
Songwriters: SMITH, RUSSELL

Sittin’ at a tiny table in a ritzy restaurant
She was staring at her coffee cup
He was trying to keep his courage up by applyin booze
The talk was small when they talked at all
They both knew what they wanted
There was no need to talk about it
But they were old enough to talk it out and keep it loose
She said you don’t look like my type but I guess you’ll do
Third Rate Romance Low Rent Rendezvous
He said I’ll even tell you that I love you if you want me too
Third Rate Romance Low rent Rendezvous

When they left the bar they got in his car and they drove away
He drove to the family inn She didn’t even have to pretend she
didn’t know what for
And then he went to the desk and made his request while she
waited outside
He came back with the key and she said give it to me and I’ll
unlock the door
She kept saying I’ve never really done this kind of thing before
have you

Third Rate Romance Low Rent Rendezvous
And he said yes I have but only a time or two

When you look at where this degenerate liar is running for office, it is not difficult to see that he will be elected regardless of what degeneracy is exposed about him. He will be elected by like minded supporters.

And this is his most important qualification for office? It is a sad, sad, depth to which this nation has fallen. Spitzer should be laughed off of the platform.

No business-hating democrat is ever going to be held to the same standard as a normal person.

Isn’t visiting a prostitute a crime? Eh? Only for normal people and not high-ranking politicians?

Spitzer's problem wasn't the visits to prostitutes.

It was the hypocricy of prosecuting prostitutes and customers while simultaneously using them.

I was following Spitzer's career at the time via WSJ editorials about how he was using the threat of prosecutions of likely innocent Wall Street executives, in order to further his career.

Totally sleazy political hack.

Morally bankrupt personally, too.

I just heard Rush play an ad that Spitzer has airing. Spitzer talks about how he went after Wall Street, and stopped their lying & cheating. I couldn’t help but laugh since he lied to, and cheated on his wife and family. It’s always easy to point the finger at the other guy while you are basically doing the same thing. Hypocrite.

Compared the the Chinese, Spitzer is a rank amateur:

Jiangsu official's 140 mistresses believed to be a record

The funniest quote:

Jin Weizhi, a vice-ministerial-level official, was said to have told people that there is no official at his level who doesn't have at least a few lovers. "It's not just for biological needs, it's a reflection of your status," he is alleged to have said. "Otherwise people will look down on you."

I haven’t visited them either, but at least with prostitutes I can enjoy getting screwed. With politicians, I get screwed and there’s no enjoyment out of it.
