Seems like in politics sex, drugs and money go hand in hand and this time American lawyer, political commentator, and Democratic Party politician who served as the 54th Governor of New York from January 2007 until his resignation on March 17, 2008 Eliot Spitzer is right in the middle of it all. Reports are that Eliot Spitzer had patronized a high-priced prostitution service called Emperors Club VIP that charges over $1,000 for one hour with one of the companies high priced call girls.
Now there is rumors of tapes showing Spitzer in some very compromising positions with his favorite “call girl” Ashley Alexandra Dupre who after being busted herself worked with the authorities as a rat and told them everything she knew. The tapes in question supposedly show Eliot in a local motel room with her performing her duties required on the politician scum bag for a couple hours. Spitzer was said to have spent in upwards of 10k on prostitutes but people that where involved with him say that number is much higher than that.
Now with all of the recent revelations, Spitzer has announced on March 12, 2008, that he would resign his post as governor at noon on March 17, 2008, amid threats of his impeachment by state lawmakers. Spitzer said held a news conference in New York City and went on the record… “I cannot allow for my private failings to disrupt the people’s work, over the course of my public life, I have insisted – I believe correctly – that people take responsibility for their conduct. I can and will ask no less of myself. For this reason, I am resigning from the office of governor.”
Calls to Spitzer’s reps have thus far gone un-returned, though we are hopeful to hear his side of the story. We understand though that his attorney’s and PR team is extremely busy with damage control as Eliot is also being investigated for loan fraud. Ah to be a politician in the United States of America! LOL
UPDATE – There is new info on even more tapes of Eliot taking care of “business”… with a different escort other than the famous hooker Ashley Dupre. We figure when you spend over 10k a year on prostitutes it was bound to happen. LOL
