Tichelman, who met her clients through a website called Seeking Arrangement, had exchanged texts and emails with Hayes and met with him a few times before the deadly November 26 encounter. That day, they met on Hayes' 50-foot yacht, Escape, at...

He believes he was drugged by the woman, who was last seen on a hotel surveillance video with his briefcase in one hand and her heels in the other.

    HONOLULU -- One of President Barack Obama's close friends has been arrested in Honolulu on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute. Robert "Bobby" Titcomb was one of four men arrested in an undercover sting operation late Monday and later released on $500 bail, according to Honolulu police. Titcomb, 49, attended Punahou School in Honolulu with Obama in the 1970s. The president graduated in 1979, a year before Titcomb. The two often golf, play basketball, go to the beach and dine together when the president returns home to Hawaii for vacation.

    The marriage proposal was apparently a rather romantic affair. On Christmas Eve, the couple watched a late-night movie together and then exchanged gifts: for him a framed photograph of their King Charles Spaniel, for her an engagement ring. ‘She burst into tears,’ he revealed on Twitter at the weekend. ‘This is the happiest Christmas in memory.’ ‘The most memorable Christmas ever,’ she tweeted in agreement. ‘I love him.’ All of which might be rather more touching if the ­prospective groom was not Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner who, at 84, is 60 years older than his fiancée, a platinum blonde model...

The weapon-wielding thug walked up to the window of the 2000 Dodge Caravan and aimed at the 44-year-old hustler behind the wheel at 2:11 a.m. in Brownsville – fatally hitting him in the lower back, police said. Bullets shattered the windshield and pierced a 30-year-old prostitute in the right arm, torso and right leg as she sat in the passenger seat, police said.

By dallying with a call-girl ring known as the Emperors Club VIP—the name augured power and cost Spitzer his—he brought to office a remarkable new governor who may succeed in achieving Spitzer’s goals through methods nothing like those of the man who once called himself a “steamroller.” While David A.

The general approach of the federal law to prostitution mimics its approach to gambling. They are activities that tend to generate big profits for organized crime syndicates, which profits not only enrich the racketeers but underwrite their various other rackets, including loan-sharking, narcotics trafficking, murder-for-hire, etc. In Governor Spitzer's case, moreover, it's worth remembering the Nevada senator character in Godfather II who is blackmailed into doing the Corleones'...

    One might call it Shakespearian if there were a shred of nobleness in the story of Eliot Spitzer's fall. There is none. Governor Spitzer, who made his career by specializing in not just the prosecution, but the ruin, of other men, is himself almost certainly ruined. Mr. Spitzer's brief statement yesterday about a "private matter" surely involves what are widely reported to be his activities with an expensive prostitution ring discovered by the U.S. Attorney's office for the Southern District of New York. Those who believe Eliot Spitzer is getting his just desserts may be entitled to that view, but...

    GOV NAILED IN HOOKER SHOCKMarch 11, 2008 -- Gov. Spitzer, who crafted a national reputation as a crusader against corruption, was exposed yesterday as the penny-pinching client of a $1,000-an-hour hooker. The bombshell allegations against Spitzer - referred to as Client-9 in an explosive criminal complaint against the operators of the prostitute's ring - triggered a series of fast-moving events from Albany to Wall Street to Capitol Hill.

    The accusations that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer patronized a high-priced call girl tarnishes, if not undermines, the Democrats' attempt to portray the Republican Party as the party of corruption in this year's elections, even as it probably ends his own political career. The stunning confession yesterday by Mr. Spitzer, who had built a national law-enforcement reputation by prosecuting corrupt financiers on Wall Street, turns him into the most prominent political figure in the country to emerge in a recent string of personal and political scandals. Those scandals had seemed to catch more Republicans and led to steep losses for...

    The poll is about halfway down the page, left-hand side and asks: Should Governor Spitzer resign or apologize and move on.Last time I checked, there was only a small majority on the side of resignation.

    In an FBI affidavit filed March 5 in Manhattan Federal Court, prosecutors described complex discussions about a payment for sending a hooker named "Kristen" on the train to Washington to meet Client 9 in a hotel on Feb. 13 - the night before Valentine's Day. Sources said Gov. Eliot Spitzer was Client 9. Spitzer was in Washington to testify the next day at the House Financial Services Committee about troubles in the bond market. Below are excerpts of the transcripts of the wiretapped calls: On February 11, 2008, at approximately 10:53 p.m., TEMEKA RACHELLE LEWIS, a/k/a "Rachelle," the defendant, using...

    State Senator David Paterson’s bid to be Eliot Spitzer’s candidate for Lieutenant Governor and campaign-trail partner was launched last month in a flurry of confusion and political intrigue. It stunned his Harlem-based world, and left him for a few days opposed by a candidate who had been endorsed by his wife and father. And when things settled down, Mr. Paterson unsettled some of Mr. Spitzer’s supporters with a public promise of a “Paterson-Spitzer administration.” Those who follow the Harlem Senator’s career were not surprised. Mr. Spitzer selected a man described as “a living contradiction” by one longtime associate. Indeed, Mr....

    There’s a certain poetic quality to this final act of Spitzer's. His extraordinary popularity with members of the press (now presumably extinguished) was rooted in his willingness to leak, sotto voce, allegations of misconduct in the personal lives of the subjects of his investigations. The press loved the juicy headlines. His motivation was apparently to embarrass and intimidate the subjects of his investigations so that they would be forced to comply. We admit to enjoying the spectacle of watching a man so given to the high moralistic tone brought low by such a misdeed. As one commenter on the New...

    New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) endorsed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) for the presidency Monday, saying she is the right leader to deal with the “crisis” that the United States finds itself in today. “When we look around the globe today, when we look around our nation, we see crisis,” Spitzer said at a campaign event in New York.The first-term governor said that the country faces a crisis in foreign policy, domestic economics and ethics. “A crisis,” he said, “that needs somebody tall to stand up with pride and say, ‘I am proud to lead this nation.’”Spitzer said that...

    Updated Monday, 4:30 PM Gov. Spitzer apologized to his family and the state Monday after a swirl of shocking reports surfaced that he was a regular at high-class prostitution ring that charged upward of $5,500-an-hour for its high-end hookers. “I acted in a way that violates my obligation to my family...I’ve disappointed and failed to live up to the standard I expected of myself,” he said. His wan-faced wife, Silda, stood by his side at a tense press conference at his Manhattan office called within an hour of the New York Times breaking the story. “I must now dedicate some...

    What We Know About Client 9 From a redacted copy of the sealed complaint about the Emperor's Club prostitution ring, we were able to extract the following details about Client 9's dealings with the organization, and his Washington liaison. Client 9, according to the Times, is the one alleged to be Governor Eliot Spitzer. We have no official confirmation of this. But below are the things that we do know about this mysterious player from the legal papers: • He refused to use a "traditional wire transfer" to pay the organization but arranged for an Emperor's Club girl to take...
  • Spitzer's Spritzing

    I promised myself I would not gloat when the news broke that New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was caught with his pants down in a virtual brothel. So I break a promise. Horsewhip me. Which may be what Spitzer asked various chippies to do to him. ... Entertaining as it is when the mighty fall, it is ever more enjoyable when they have painted themselves in sanctimonious hues. But in Eliot’s case it is not surprising. Spitzer has long been a man for whom ruthless exercise of power fed his ego. Getting his way and doing what he damned well...
