i’ve been back in town for several days now but frankly, i’m a little nervous going outside. i’m a bit afraid i may run into another newsstand. the cover of new york magazine is scaring me this week. seriously.
here it is.
“carlos danger” & “client #9”
part 1: client #9
i don’t like to follow politics, but when the man who wants to be new york city comptroller already stepped down as governor because he used our money to fund unnecessary trips where he would meet up with very expensive prostitutes, lied to his family, lied to the people he was supposedly “governing” and got caught, you just can’t help but to find out – even if you try to avoid the news. most egregiously, eliot spitzer got himself elected to the governors office using his tough stance on ethics. ethics!
before he became governor he was the attorney general and leader of the state’s organized crime task force, where he headed the prosecution of two prostitution rings, according to the times. who out there thinks it’s a good idea for the guy who used tax payer money to fund unnecessary trips so that he could meet ladies should be comptroller? this man doesn’t know how to tell the truth and we should trust him with our money?
When he was attorney general, Mr. Spitzer’s signature issue was pursuing Wall Street misdeeds. But he also oversaw the prosecution of at least two prostitution rings by the state’s organized crime task force, which reports to the attorney general.
In one such case in 2004, Mr. Spitzer spoke with revulsion and anger after announcing the arrest of 16 people for operating a high-end prostitution ring out of Staten Island.
“This was a sophisticated and lucrative operation with a multitiered management structure,” Mr. Spitzer said at the time. “It was, however, nothing more than a prostitution ring.” ny times
i’m not against prostitution, i really don’t think it’s any of my business who’s paying who for anything as long as they are in agreement on the deal, and i don’t have a clue why it’s against the law to sell your services if that what you’re wanting to do. personally, i think ashley dupree was slumming it when she agreed to meet with client #9, but hey, that’s her choice, not mine.
eliot spitzer has proved himself to be an elitist, creepy liar and hypocrite and seeing his snake like eye on the cover of that magazine every time i go out is freaking me out. the madame of the brothel he used is running against spitzer in the race for city comptroller. i hope she wins.
“if they both win, the city will be run by the peter tweeter & the hooker booker.”
