Spitzer Using Prostitutes For Past Decade;
Behar: Prostitution Victimless Crime
Left: Disgraced New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, Democrat, demonstrating the length of something. Right: Nelson Muntz
Embroiled New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who was busted on Monday related to prostitution charges, and possibly money laundering is said to have been using hookers for the past 6 years, maybe up to the past ten years. New York Post:
Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been soliciting high-priced hookers for at least six years and possibly for more than a decade, sources tell The Post.
The revelation yesterday that the crusading governor was in fact "Client 9" named in a federal prostitution indictment did not shock insiders in the city's sex industry.
Sources tell The Post that Spitzer had frequented high-priced hookers as far back as 2002 and possibly earlier.
IRS investigators inadvertently stumbled upon Spitzer's secret life as a prostitute patron when his bank referred them to questionable wire transfers in his commercial bank account.
Joy Behar calls prostitution a "victimless crime."
Joy Behar 8 minutes into Tuesday's "The View", speaking about and defending the behavior of fellow Progressive Eliot Spitzer, said, "why is the FBI prosecuting a victimless crime."
Tsk - tsk, Joy, shame on you! Womens' Rights groups have told us for decades that even in situations of voluntary prostitution the prostitute is still a victim. And you Joy, of all people, call prostitution a "victimless crime"? I thought that for Liberals and Progressives there are no such things as a "victimless" crime. We are all victims, are we not? This is what the Liberals have been telling us. For shame, Joy...for shame.
The length Progressives and Liberals go to in order to excuse the bad behavior of their own members always remains astonishing.
Now, Eliot Spitzer may be using his delay in resigning as a bargaining chip during a plea agreement. Spitzer spent his career prosecuting lawbreakers to the fullest extent of the law, now he wants a break. He wants prosecutors to be soft on the severity of his sentencing. What a sack of sh*t.
Is there anyone out there who believes that this was Spitzer's one and only rendezvous with the
Spitzer faces impeachment if he does not resign. Swissinfo:
New York State Republicans threatened on Tuesday to impeach Gov. Eliot Spitzer if he does not quit over a sex scandal 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 white-collar crime on Wall Street, to step down after a report that he hired a high-priced prostitute.
The Wall Street Journal quoted a person close to Spitzer, who is 48 and married, as saying he could resign as early as Tuesday but he wanted to deal with his family crisis first.
"If he does not resign within the next 24 to 48 hours, we will prepare articles of impeachment to remove him," said James Tedisco, leader of the Republicans in the state Assembly.
