Spitzer and the Hookers -- When Did He Start?
A New York Post story today says that Eliot Spitzer was being serviced by high-priced call girls as far back as 2003 -- when he was Attorney General.
This is deeply troublesome, because it raises serious questions in my mind as to whether his work as AG might have been compromised by his (apparent) "hooker habit."
There's no hint of that yet, but I think that it needs to be thoroughly examined by investigators. By patronizing prostitutes, Spitzer was leaving himself open to blackmail. It was not only reckless and self-destructive, but potentially damaging to the people of New York. As I've pointed out before, it's no secret that prostitution rings are often tied in with the Russian mob.
