  • Eliot Spitzer withdraws lawsuit against alleged Russian hooker

    09/07/2016 5:30:41 PM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 15 replies ^ | 09/07/2016 | Julia Marsh
    That was a quickie of a lawsuit! Eliot Spitzer has pulled out of a fraud and extortion case against an alleged Russian hooker who accused him of choking her at the Plaza Hotel — less than two months after filing the suit. “Eliot Spitzer, by and through his attorneys, hereby discontinues the above-entitled action without prejudice and without costs to either party as against the other,” the withdrawal notice says. The legal term “without prejudice” means Spitzer could refile the case in the future. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– Papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday say the notice of discontinuance was...

    Eliot Spitzer's ex-wife finally has something to smile about after the details of her multimillion-dollar divorce settlement from the disgraced 'Luv Guv' were revealed today. Silda Wall Spitzer gets a $7.5million payout and to keep her luxury Fifth Avenue apartment overlooking Central Park in Manhattan as part of the deal. The ex-New York governor's former wife, who grimly stood by him when his predilection for expensive call girls came to light in 2008, will also receive $240,000-a-year maintenance for life.

    Eliot Spitzer has refused to deny claims that he is cheating on his wife Silda - again. The New York City comptroller candidate was given three opportunities this morning to defend himself against allegations he has a girlfriend, but instead chose to dodge reporters' questions. 'I am so tired of the personal attacks and I've answered all those questions,' he said at a Brooklyn campaign stop.

    Eliot Spitzer, who resigned as governor of New York five years ago amid a prostitution scandal, is re-entering political life, with a run for the citywide office of comptroller and a hope that voters are ready to look past his previous misconduct. Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, hoping that voters have forgiven him his previous misconduct, will run for the citywide office of comptroller. In an interview, Mr. Spitzer, 54, sounding restless after an unwelcome hiatus from government, said he had re-envisioned the often-overlooked office and wanted to resurrect the kind of aggressive role he played as New York State’s attorney...

    I say "political integrity expert," you say "Eliot Spitzer." I say "you're kidding me, right?" Rachel Maddow actually got off to a good start this evening in her segment on political sleaziness, ripping politicians both Dem and Republican for a variety of venal sins. But of all the people to bring on as your expert to discuss how to raise the moral bar . . . Client 9? Surely you make mirth, Ms. Maddow? View the video here

    If there were any doubt that Eliot “Client 9” Spitzer has spiraled down into further delusion and irrelevance, it was erased Friday afternoon in an embarrassing and bizarre shootout between the disgraced former NY Attorney General and CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo. At issue were allegations that a trove of private emails may exist showing the former purchaser of high-priced prostitutes launched a personally motivated prosecution against former AIG chief Hank Greenberg. Of the eight charges Spitzer brought against Greenberg, six have been dropped, with the last two in the process of being dismissed, according to Greenberg’s lawyer. Still, throughout the interview...

    Eliot Spitzer's resurrection -- from the disgraced gov ernor better known as Cli ent 9 to CNN talk-show host -- has the political class buzzing about him running for mayor in 2013. Wilder still, one of his former targets is talking about running against him. Former New York Stock Exchange chief Dick Grasso -- one of the highest-profile targets of Spitzer's uneven assault on Wall Street -- has quietly been telling friends that he's leaning toward challenging Spitzer as a Republican (particularly if Police Commissioner Ray Kelly doesn't seek the GOP nomination himself, as some speculate he will). Sure, Grasso...

    The Al Gore police report is disturbing. To be specific, it's 67 pages of the quite graphically disturbing, as posted here by Red State. You are reading the news of this police report -- originally filed in October of 2006 -- only because the National Enquirer scooped the story. In June of 2010. You did not read it in the Portland Tribune, which has been on this story since 2007 and failed to tell its readers until the Enquirer broke the story. The Tribune's explanation for this is to be found here. Then there's the interesting news that Kathleen Parker,...

    ALBANY, N.Y. – Eliot Spitzer has a few words to say about the AIG bonus brouhaha: I told you so. The former New York governor battered American International Group with charges of corruption long before his own dizzying downfall in a prostitution scandal. He has used this latest financial scandal to strike his old populist, Sheriff of Wall Street themes and, just maybe, mend his reputation — though critics contend that he bears a share of the blame for the insurance giant's historic near-collapse. Spitzer says the AIG bonus issue is "penny ante" compared to the billions of the insurer's...

    Members of designer Yigal Azrouel's team were none too happy to see luv Gov Eliot Spitzer's former fave call girl Ashley Dupre take a front row seat at his fashion show Friday. As for the photo taken backstage featuring Yigal and the Luv Gov's fave escort, Garcia Santana had this to say: "Yigal has never met her, doesn't know her. He has his picture taken with many people back stage. This is all very upsetting. The focus should be on the beautiful collection he presented." As for how Dupre ended up inside and front row center, Cutrone said, "Ashley was...

    NEW YORK, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Two former racing employees have sued former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, claiming they were victims of a witch hunt when he was attorney general. Lawyers for Mario Sclafani, 51, who lives in Dutchess County in New York, and Braulio Baeza, 68, of West Virginia, say that Spitzer and others were involved in a malicious prosecution, the New York Daily News reported. Sclafani and Baeza were charged with taking bribes from overweight jockeys, but a judge threw out the case during trial in 2007. The suit filed in federal court names several employees of...

    Tania Hollander, 36, became the fourth and likely last person to plead guilty in the sex scandal that exposed Ashley Alexandra Dupré as former New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer’s high-priced call girl. The scandal led to Spitzer’s resignation and launched Dupre to national prominence. Hollander's lawyer described her as a minor character in the scandal, but she could face up to five years in jail. Hollander, 36, of Rhinebeck, N.Y worked as a booker for the Emperors Club VIP, the high-priced New Jersey-based call girl ring that eventually hired Dupre. Hollander told the court she began looking for work early...

    The cooperation agreement reached between prosecutors and an employee of the call-girl ring known as Emperors Club VIP will come in handy should the Manhattan U.S. attorney, Michael Garcia, decide to charge Governor Spitzer with a crime. The woman, Temeka Rachelle Lewis, 32, who entered a guilty plea to money laundering and prostitution-related charges yesterday, would be a key witness against Mr. Spitzer if the former governor is charged in connection with patronizing an Emperors Club prostitute... Lewis, who booked clients for the call-girl service, had several phone conversations with Mr. Spitzer to hammer out the logistics of payment and...

    Before he became governor - or Client 9 - exiled Manhattan madam Andreia Schwartz says she was aware of Eliot Spitzer's sexual peccadilloes. "I first got to know Eliot Spitzer at a party of multimillionaires in the Hamptons," she revealed in an interview with Brazil's Sexy magazine. "At this time Spitzer was a prosecutor. A friend of mine had stayed with him, and he had certain demands, asking for strange things." She said the disgraced politician flirted with her, although she declined to provide details. "There are always those glances," she said. "But people speak too much." Schwartz once worked...
