    NY Governor Linked to Prostitution Ring

    NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Times is reporting that Gov. Eliot Spitzer has told senior advisers that he had been involved in a prostitution ring.

    Spitzer is scheduled to make an announcement Monday afternoon. Spitzer officials wouldn't immediately comment on the story.

    Spitzer, 48, is married and has three daughters.

    Details about the prostitution ring were not immediately clear.

    But last week, federal prosecutors in Manhattan filed conspiracy charges against four people accusing them of running a prostitution ring that charged wealthy clients in Europe and the U.S. thousands of dollars for prostitutes.

    The Web site of the Emperors Club VIP displays photographs of the prostitutes' bodies, with their faces hidden, along with hourly rates depending on whether the prostitutes were rated with one diamond, the lowest ranking, or seven diamonds, the highest. The most highly ranked prostitutes cost $5,500 an hour, prosecutors said.

    Spitzer has built his political legacy on rooting out corruption, including several headline-making battles with Wall Street while serving as attorney general. He stormed into the governor's office in 2006 with a historic share of the vote, vowing to continue his no-nonsense approach to fixing one of the nation's worst governments.

    Time magazine had named him "Crusader of the Year" when he was attorney general and the tabloids proclaimed him "Eliot Ness."

    But his stint as governor has been marred by several problems, including an unpopular plan to grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants and a plot by his aides to smear Spitzer's main Republican nemesis.

    Spitzer had been expected to testify to the state Public Integrity Commission he had created to answer for his role in the scandal, in which his aides are accused of misusing state police to compile travel records to embarrass Senate Republican leader Joseph Bruno.

    Spitzer had served two terms as attorney general where he pursued criminal and civil cases and cracked down on misconduct and conflicts of interests on Wall Street and in corporate America. He had previously been a prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, handling organized crime and white-collar crime cases.

    His cases as state attorney general included a few criminal prosecutions of prostitution rings and into tourism involving prostitutes.

    In 2004, he was part of an investigation of an escort service in New York City that resulted in the arrest of 18 people on charges of promoting prostitution and related charges.

    Top official says Gov. Spitzer to resign

    ALBANY, N.Y. -- A top state official said Governor Eliot Spitzer is resigning after being linked to a prostitution ring.

    The official said Spitzer will resign effective Monday and will be replaced by Lieutenant Governor David Paterson.

    State Republicans had been threatening to impeach Spitzer if he didn't step down.

    The scandal erupted Monday when a law enforcement official identified Spitzer as "Client 9" in an alleged prostitution ring. "Client 9" paid thousands of dollars to spend an evening with a call girl named Kristen in a Washington hotel.

    Spitzer's involvement in the ring was reportedly caught on a federal wiretap as part of an investigation opened in recent months.

    I coulda puked when I heard about his "remorse." He was only sorry that he was caught. 80 large on hookers. He should be criminally charged for this. I have no feelings about prostitution whatsoever. In fact, as an American, I don't think ANYTHING that doesn't interfere with someone elses life liberty and blah blah blah should be illegal. But since people like this pius bag of shit MAKE these things illegal, they should be held to a higher standard of accountability. And what's with everyone in a position of power in this country being a fucking billionaire? Goldie the data miner should be working on a thread showing just how much each person in the goverment is worth, and what major coporations they are affiliated with.

    A man has got to know his limitations a once famous actor once said in a classic movie. I know mine. I consider myself fortunate to have retained the capacity to READ what other people drudge up.

    Prosecutor: Spitzer ordered dirty tricks
    Prosecutor: Spitzer Ordered Dirty Tricks in Political Brawl With GOP Leader

    A prosecutor says former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer angrily ordered an aide to smear a political rival — something Spitzer denies.

    Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares says Spitzer cursed at former aide Darren Dopp and told him to release records that could embarrass Senate Republican leader Joseph Bruno.

    But Soares says it doesn't appear Spitzer broke any laws. This is the second time the prosecutor has reviewed the case.

    Spitzer resigned earlier this month amid allegations that he was a client in a high-priced prostitution ring.
