Oh the Irony: Crime Fighter Eliot Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Scandal

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who built his crime-fighter reputation by taking on crime, corruption, and ironically, prostitution, was himself linked to a very expensive prostitution ring:

Last week, federal prosecutors arrested four people in connection with an expensive prostitution operation called the Emperors Club. The club charged up to $5,500 an hour for one if its prostitutes, who were rated on its Web site on a scale of one to seven diamonds. [...]

Administration officials would not say whether this was the ring with which the governor allegedly become involved. The federal complaint mentions a Emperors Club suspect identified as "Client 9."

Federal law enforcement sources confirmed that Spitzer was the Client 9 named in the complaint. Client 9 seems to have allegedly spent about $4,300 on the services of a prostitute identified only as Kristen. He paid for her to travel: "train tickets, cab fare from the hotel and back, mini bar or room service, travel time and hotel."

Kristen was allegedly described to Spitzer as " an American, petite, very pretty brunette, 5 feet 5 inches, and 105 pounds," according to the complaints.
