Well this man in a glass house had a stone thrown back at him.....

 
Elliot Spitzer admits to participation in a prostitution ring.

Someone needs to through the book at him and make a example of this "dirty" lawyer/politician.

Thank you for the correction.  I noticed that a little too late.

Hope they put the bastard in jail. He's needlessly ruined countless careers for his own personal aggrandizement.

1% of me is feeling guilt at enjoying the bad fortune of someone else. 

 
The other 99% of me is trying to decide if I want to do a happy dance or just sit here at my desk with a big grin and feel like there is in fact some justice in the world, even for a former attorney general who can generally work/buy off the system.
 
Karma's a b*tch.

From here on out, we should only refer to the sanctamonious son of a bitch as Client 9

To start a healthy debate...How does this compare with our beloved Bill Clinton....nothing happened to him and he was LESS than honest about it?

In my opinion at least Spitzer hasn't LIED about it.

True, however Bill clinton didn't pay any money for the sexual act, which Mr. spitinherear.... I mean client no. 9.......... I mean dirty bastard.... I mean spitzer did.
 
I think both should go/have gone to jail.
 
These people of power need to be held to a extremely high standard and pay a very high price when they lie, cheat, steal,..... get screwed by a prostitute... or break the law in any other way.

You have to admit, though, it was a little sad watching his wife stand there by his side.  I feel bad for her and the 3 kids.  That is something they can never get over, because it was a PROSTITUTE.  How can that possibly make you feel about your husband or father?  If it weren't for the family, I would be smiling from ear to ear.

 
Somehow, I didn't feel quite as bad for Hillary.  Not sure the difference, I just didn't.

I dunno... As a proud heterosapien, I think doin' Hillary would be like having gay sex.
 
 
(Note: Everyone reading this is a homosapien, but not everyone reading this is a heterosexual. Therefore, I'm more comfortable with the term heterosapien, personally.)
 
Just sayin'...

There's a huge difference between prostitution and having an affair. For one, one is legal the other is not.

The only thing I care to admit, is that there are hundreds of financial advisors and wholesalers who engage in the same activity while their wives and kids wait for them at home. I know some of these people personally and wish they'd get hung out to dry. It kills me when their business is successful nevertheless and they advertise all the community work and charity they do to "drive the community" to their naive clients. I even threw up in a public stall because of it.

all that money, all that influence, Client 9 couldn't get action with buying someone a drink and banging then? i personally don't care about anyone's sexual activities. in our business we see this all he time. it doesn't even bother me that these people do god business. what bothers me about Client 9 is that the sob was always so pompous. f' him he deserves the public shame. it is one thing to do your job it is another to try to embarass people all the time if you catch them doing something wring. boy, to be a fly on the wall in Client 9's house the last few days would be PRICELESS.

Big difference is one did a 'bad' thing by cheating; the other did an illegal act. Personally, I dont see why being a prostitute is illegal but it is. I think that if a women wants to sell her body for sex she should be able too. I would NEVER do it but that is a women's choice.
 
** The reason he didn't lie is they already had a case built on him. He will resign but I am sure it  will be  only after he works with the officials and gets the madam turned over in lieu of conviction. When he was the Attorney General he pissed a lot of people off. I bet this was a set-up and he simply took the bait. Shame on him.. I hope his wife leaves him.. 3 Kids or not.. She needs to have some self respect.

Client 9:  Sanctimonious holier than thou SOB who ran on stopping abuses of power and corruption caught with a prostitute.  His career was based on being perceived MORE moral than everyone else around him.


Bill Clinton:  Ran on a platform that comprised many things, NONE of them even hinting that he was above enjoying the trappings of power.  His career flourished IN SPITE OF out of being perceived as LESS moral than everyone else around him.
 
In other words, when Client 9 was caught, everyone was shocked.  When Clinton was caught, no one was surprised.  Most Bill Clinton voters knew what he was when they voted for him.  Anyone who acted surprised was either naive or just playing politics.

+1 on this synopsis.
 
Personally, my belief is that our leaders getting a little tail on the side isn't necessarily a bad thing. I don't want panzy leaders. I'm not condoning it, or saying in any way that it's right. Using history as a guide, Kennedy, Roosevelt, Churchill all good leaders and all cheatin lyin scumballs in the fidelity department. Yet, even though they had challanges in their personal lives they, and many like them,  accomplished great things.
 
For me, fidelity is an integrity issue. But not a make or break issue. I give a lot of rope for not being in that person's shoes and not judging them for human falacy.
 
As for Spitzer, no question he had to go. He ran over a lot of people's rights to build his career.
 
My question: Who are clients one through eight?
