NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Times is reporting that Gov. Eliot Spitzer has told senior advisers that he had been involved in a prostitution ring.

On its Web site, the newspaper cites an anonymous administration official as the source and says Spitzer was meeting with his top aides.

Spitzer officials wouldn't immediately comment on the story to The Associated Press. An announcement was scheduled for 2:15 p.m. at his Manhattan office.

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.

Quite frankly,

More often than I think any of us would care to know it is the guilt of association which spurs these men to become crusaders with a cause.

And sometimes those few who start the fight with a healthy heart fall to temptation along the way. In order to fight the system you have to learn the system. And once you know the system you know where to look to become a part of it.

Rough patch with the wife after 8 years of fighting prostitution and corruption??? Yeah, I could see how that would lurk in the darker parts of the mind as an option.

Shoot, I dunno why we are still so surprised by this. I lay even odds that Jimmy Carter is the ONLY president that hasn't snuck a woman or two into the house and I'm not even that sure about Carter.

NY Republicans threaten to impeach Gov. Spitzer By Claudia Parsons
18 minutes ago



State Republicans threatened on Tuesday to impeach New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer if he does not quit over a report linking him to a prostitute that has raised questions over whether he could face criminal charges.

The threat added to pressure on Spitzer, a Democrat and former state chief prosecutor who made his name fighting corruption, to step down.

"If he does not resign within the next 24 to 48 hours, we will prepare articles of impeachment to remove him," said Assembly Republican Minority Leader James Tedisco.

"We need a leader in place that has the support of people on both sides of the aisle," Tedisco told Reuters.

The New York Times said on Monday that Spitzer, 48 and married, hired a $1,000-an-hour prostitute and was caught on a federal wiretap at least six times on February 12 and 13 arranging to meet with her at a Washington hotel.

Spitzer, who investigated prostitution as New York state's attorney general, apologized on Monday for what he described as a "private matter" but said nothing about resigning. He neither confirmed nor denied the report.

Tedisco said on Monday night he had received a phone call from Lt. Gov. David A. Paterson to discuss a possible transition of power if Spitzer resigns.

Spitzer, viewed as a rising star in the Democratic Party, spent the night holed up at his Manhattan home, besieged by media.

The New York Times, citing unnamed law enforcement officials, reported on Tuesday that the investigation began last year during an Internal Revenue Service review of suspicious financial transactions as reported to it by banks.

"The payments were made over a period of several months in a way that investigators believe was intended to conceal their purpose and source, which could amount to a crime called structuring," punishable by up to five years in prison, the Times said.

News of the scandal rocked Wall Street, where power brokers resented Spitzer's high-profile inquiries into financial cases when he was the state's chief prosecutor.

Spitzer was elected governor with nearly 70 percent of the vote in late 2006 following his stint as state attorney general.

NEWSPAPERS SKEWER GOVERNOR

New York City's tabloids seized on the news to skewer the governor.

The Daily News headline called him the "Pay for Luv Gov."

The Times said in an editorial that Spitzer's insistence in his brief appearance on Monday that it was a "private matter" displayed arrogance.

"He did not just betray his family in a private matter," the newspaper said.

"He betrayed the public and it is hard to see how he will recover from this mess and go on to lead the reformist agenda on which he was elected to office."

The Wall Street Journal said Spitzer had shown his lack of restraint in overly aggressive tactics as attorney general, making "extraordinary threats" to entire firms and to those who criticized his pursuit of high-profile Wall Street figures.

"The stupendously deluded belief that the sitting Governor of New York could purchase the services of prostitutes was merely the last act of a man unable to admit either the existence of, or need for, limits," it said in an editorial.

New York's state capital, Albany, was rife with speculation about if, or when, Spitzer would resign and whether he would be charged with any crime. Prosecutors rarely bring charges against clients of prostitutes in such cases.

At the heart of the scandal is a criminal complaint unveiled last week charging four people with running a prostitution ring dubbed The Emperors Club.

The New York Times said Spitzer was an individual identified as Client 9 in the court papers filed last week. Client 9 arranged to meet with "Kristen," a prostitute who charged $1,000 an hour, on February 13 in a Washington hotel and paid $4,300 for services rendered and as a down payment for future engagements, according to the court documents.

Among the charges brought against the four defendants last week was transporting women across state lines for prostitution purposes. It was not clear if a similar charge might be brought against Spitzer if it were proven he arranged for "Kristen" to travel from New York to Washington to have sex with him.

Maybe there is a lot more to this than being a john.

I can't believe that so many would call for his resignation especially politicians who IMHO use hookers also maybe they are just mad because they were out classed.

Has to be more than using a high end call girl

Law enforcement officials said the governor — the millionaire heir to a New York real estate fortune — had hired prostitutes several times before and had spent tens of thousands of dollars, and perhaps as much as $80,000, on the high-priced escort service Emperors Club VIP, whose women charge as much as $5,500 an hour.

There can't be any Ho's out there worth $5,500 an hour, can there?
