Spitzer Gets Lucky....Again

I guess it pays to be a politician. Apparently any type of crime that regular people would be prosecuted for, just isn't serious enough for a politician. Former New York Governor Spitzer, was let off the hook(er) yesterday. According to the NY Post: " I acknowledge and accept responsibility for the conduct it disclosed," he said of the federal investigation. "I resigned my position as governor because I recognized that conduct was unworthy of an elected official."
US Attorney Michael Garcia said Spitzer "has acknowledged to this office that he was a client of, and made payments to, the Emperors Club VIP," an international prostitution ring busted in March.

Just a reminder, Spitzer was busted after the news story broke that he paid $1,000 an hour for sexcapades with call girl Ashley Dupre at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington.

Funny that other people involved in the prostitution ring are doing jail time. The Post says: "Aside from the Emperors Club, Spitzer has also been linked to an escort service called Wicked Models. Its former ringleader, Kristin Davis, said last month that Spitzer was a client, but said she never personally serviced him. Davis has pleaded guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court to promoting prostitution. "

I guess there is a difference between the promoter and the promoted.

Anyway you look at it, Spitzer seems to have gotten lucky once again!
