NY Gov. Elliot Spitzer linked to prostetution ring
Whoa, NO ONE saw this one coming...
Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month, according to a person briefed on the federal investigation.Whoa, I don't see how Spitzer survives this situation. We're taking about the modern day Elliot-Ness and the sheriff of Wall Street.
An affidavit in the federal investigation into a prostitution ring said that a wiretap recording captured a man identified as Client 9 on a telephone call confirming plans to have a woman travel from New York to Washington, where he had reserved a hotel room. The person briefed on the case identified Mr. Spitzer as Client 9.
Mr. Spitzer today made a brief public appearance during which he apologized for his behavior, and described it as a “private matter.”
“I have acted in a way that violates my obligation to my family and violates my or any sense of right or wrong,” said Mr. Spitzer, who appeared with his wife Silda at his Manhattan office. “I apologize first and most importantly to my family. I apologize to the public to whom I promised better.”
“I have disappointed and failed to live up to the standard I expected of myself. I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family.”
I'm TIVO monitoring the local NY stations and I'll update the site if anything happens (like Spitzer resigning).
NOTE: Spitzer is a super-delegate and supporter of Hillary Clinton's campaign.
