Spitzer swallows?

Well, well. Don’t you hate it when a visionary takes it between the eyes?

From the Gray Lady, who apparently wasn’t part of the ring but is set to service the right honorable governor of New York in its own special way . . .

“The governor’s travel records show that he was in Washington in mid-February. One of the clients described in court papers arranged to meet with a prostitute who was part of the ring, the Emperors Club VIP on the night of Feb. 13.

Mr. Spitzer appeared on a CNBC television show at 7 a.m. the next morning. Later in the morning, he testified before a Congressional committee.

An affidavit filed in federal court in Manhattan in connection with that case lists six conversations between the man, identified as Client 9, and a booking agent for the Emperors Club . . . .

Mr. Spitzer gained national attention when he served as attorney general with his relentless pursuit of Wall Street wrongdoing. As attorney general, he also had prosecuted at least two prostitution rings as head of the state’s organized crime task force.

In one such case in 2004, Mr. Spitzer spoke with revulsion and anger after announcing the arrest of 16 people for operating a high-end prostitution ring out of Staten Island.

“”This was a sophisticated and lucrative operation with a multitiered management structure,” Mr. Spitzer said at the time. ”It was, however, nothing more than a prostitution ring.””

Perhaps Governor Spitzer’s last hope is to adopt the stance (not wide like that of Larry Craig) recently taken by that paragon of post-apocalyptic urban leadership, Ray Nagin:

“She ((Eve) Ensler) started describing the event, and you know what, I’m a guy and I’ve heard about the Vagina Monologues but I don’t know what was going on.  I didn’t know anything about it and she started to describe this event – look, you know I’ve got a script and I’m not following it – and I was absolutely blown away at how awesome this work is.  I mean, she is doing God’s work. So, I stand before you, a vagina-friendly Mayor. I am in!  And you know what?  It is so appropriate right now.  New Orleans, Louisiana is the birthplace of jazz, you know, but it is the birthplace of so many tremendous women.”

And for more entertainment, check out the link following Nagin’s story:

Now go watch the TV or the Internet, while I hope upon hope that I beat the New York Post to the best headline of the year . . . .

  3. $4000?!What a loser.
    Kennedy never had to pay for it.

    If he had been some schmo it would have been a second class misdemeanor and $75 fine. D’OH!
