Its much more than just about the sex police.
For those whining that the FBI should be doing things with tax payer money other than looking into people’s sex lives … um, they are. Believe it or not, there were a few people who actually were making excuses and walking a thin line of not so much defending Eliot Spitzer’s link to a prostitution ring, but questioning why the FBI was looking into sex. However, this is one of the rare times where the Left and Right agree … Ho No … Spitzer Must Go.
The answer is that where there is prostitution, there are other illegal activities including money laundering, bribery and corruption. According to the FBI, they were not looking into Spitzer’s sex life, they were following the trail of suspicious money transfers initially leading agents to believe Spitzer was hiding bribes. Thus leading to Eliot Spitzer, George Fox and Client 9 busted. How could a former prosecutor, now governor be so ignorant and arrogant to expose himself to potential blackmail?
The federal investigation of a New York prostitution ring was triggered by Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s suspicious money transfers, initially leading agents to believe Spitzer was hiding bribes, according to federal officials.
It was only months later that the IRS and the FBI determined that Spitzer wasn’t hiding bribes but payments to a company called QAT, what prosecutors say is a prostitution operation operating under the name of the Emperors Club. (ABC News)
Well, getting caught in such an act as soon to be ex-Governor of NY, Eliot Spitzer, one usually has to apply the cockroach theory. For ever cockroach one finds crawling across the floor, how many do we never see in the wall. The same appears to be true, according to the NY Post source with Eliot Spitzer and frequenting hookers.
The liaisons between Spitzer and a number of different prostitutes occurred around the country, including in Washington, D.C., and Florida, the sources said. For each encounter, Spitzer paid several thousand dollars, the sources said.
The Associated Press reported that investigators said Spitzer was a repeat customer of a high-priced call-girl service, spending perhaps as much as $80,000 over an extended period of time.
