Maybe He'll Enter the Rabbinate

Update: the Clinton website was sanitized of the numerous mentions of the Spitzer name within an hour of the story breaking; yep, it's a well-oiled machine.

Update: Spitzer (married, with three children), is a Democratic "superdelegate" who has endorsed Hillary Clinton. It should be fun to see how she handles this, it being an issue with which she actually does have experience.

From the New York Times:
Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring

[New York] 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.

The wiretap recording, made during an investigation of a prostitution ring called Emperors Club VIP, 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 room. The person briefed on the case identified Mr. Spitzer as Client 9.

Funny how people who play fast and loose with other people's lives, as Spitzer did, both as New York's Attorney General and as Governor, so often do the same with their own.
