New York's crime busting Governor is "caught" in a prostitution ring.

File this one under WTF?!!! I cannot believe this. Didn't Gov. Spizter bust several high-end call girl rings as Attorney General? Since he became Governor, Spizter, a rising star in the Democrat Party has made one mistake after another.

I also want to know what do these women do that is worth $5,500 an HOUR? This "club" is very big in New York, London, and Paris. Originally there was an investigation into financial issues, which lead to them wiretapping his phone calls to the ring and his emails. He was a frequent customer.

I know State Sen. Majority Leader Bruno must be cracking up. He can't stand the Princeton, Harvard Law, Fifth Avenue raised (Spitzer's father is worth over $500 million) Governor.

Is Spizter is going to resign? I don't know how he can stay in office. This is not about morality. He broke the law plain and simple. This ring has ties to organized crime. What was he thinking? He left himself wide open for bribery, kickbacks etc.

He is married with three teenage girls. I wonder how his wife feels.

It amazes me how stupid our brightest satrs can be. He obviously thought he was above the law, like the corrupt preacher types thinking they are the higher power and can do what they like.No one is perfect. But when you are in these positions you have to be 100 times more careful of your actions.

I just saw Spitzer's press conference on the news. Talk about squirming in one's seat. And his poor wife had to "stand by him" instead of whacking him on the back of the head with a polo mallet, which is what she probably felt like doing. Don't worry though. It's different over here. In Italian politics, what goes on in the Rome usually stays in Rome.

glamah16 - I agree with these types of high-profile jobs you have to be more careful. Maybe he has some kind of addiction? That behavior seems way to risky for someone one who has built their career on ethics.

linda - Man, I cannot imagine what I would do in that situation. Maybe his wife knew about it?

I don't know if she knew about it. She was by his side, but looked awful. Much more awful than Hillary looked during Bill's scandal. I'm not cutting on her - I mean she looked pale, drawn, etc., etc. I can not even imagine. And can you imagine being a teen daughter and having this news break?

What WAS he thinking??? Power mad can be a correct term.

Of course, we here in the Detroit area have our own little mayoral scandal... sigh.

odessa said...

yeah, WTF! and i immediately thought the same thing, what do these women do for $5,500 an hour?! it boogles the mind. but i guess when you have the money $5,500 is probably not that much.

my aunt is a nurse and she and her husband used to work for a prince in the middle east and she said that he would often fly over hollywood stars and models, paying them god knows how much for "entertainment" purposes.

i saw the pictures online too. spizter's wife looked really pale and confused. poor thing.

Los Angelista said...

Poor woman looked like she's in that first stage of grief. I felt bad for her. And good point, what ARE they doing for that much money?

Giulia said...

Hey, come to me, come to me... whatever those girls are doing, I'll do it for HALF the price! :p lol just kidding!

I wonder how he would feel if one of his three girls went into that "business!"

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

jen - I read about your scandal there in Detroit. I don't know why the Mayor and his aide lied. Anyone can check emails or cell phone records these days.

odessa - The Heidi Fleiss girls used to go to the Middle East for thousands of dollars. The calls girls felt like they had hit the jackpot.

los angeles - she did look so sad. I can't imagine what that dinner table discussion is like. I think she is a lawyer too. Given he is a former AG I 'm surprised the Gov. didn't think twice before having a prostitute cross state lines to meet him. That is a felony.

giuila - ha! Seriously, what is worth that kind of money? Where did these women come from?

I assume the Governor would not be happy.

Jo said...

Think of this as a warm up to Italian politics! I hope there was an infidelity clause in the pre nup!

bleeding espresso said...

WTF is really the only response I can muster.

Texas Espresso said...

yeah I saw that. I never understand why these people in power so blatantly defy the law. Is it the power they have that makes them think they will never get caught? or simply ego? or the millions they have at their disposal which they think can make everything go away? who knows - its crazy.

honestly, as his wife - I don't know if I could've stood there by him. I always feel bad for the kids too. I mean EWWW - who wants to think about their parents having sex anyway, let alone something so public and with expensive hookers!

I'm with you - what do those girls DO? for that kind of money? lol

Lingerista said...

did you know that the lieutenant governor (i.e., the person who will take the place of this jackass who made his name taking down white collar criminals like he was john wayne) is David Patterson, a brother who also happens to be legally blind?

jo - I think she comes from money as well, so there is probably no pre-nup. They will probably stay married.

bleeding espresso - ha.

texas espresso - I bet some of the thrill is the illicit nature of it. I'm not married so I can't really speak to how I would react if it were my husband. I hope the hookers have invested their money well. It's not a long term career!

lingerista - Yes I did know that. The calls for Spitzer to resign are only going to get stronger.

joe@italyville.com said...

talk about shooting yourself in the foot. The sad part is he is one of the ones that got caught... wonder how many other politicians do similar or worse.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

joe - I'm sure there are quite a few powerful (and not powerful) men who are thinking "for now on I need to pay with cash."

Onknees (not_onknees at the moment) said...

Im not sure WTF he was thinking, but I'd like to be her pimp.
About his wife? why get off that gravy train? Now he is going to make money doing something else...writing, speaking, and don't forget the inevitable Lifetime movie....

annette - I read that books agents are trying to get to his call girl. We have not heard the last of this scandal. You are right that Spizter will probably make more money now. Given his background, a Govenor's salary is tiny compared to what his peers from school are making.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

that should be "book"

wordtryst said...

Call me jaded or cynical or whatever, but I'm not shocked. I've learnt to be particularly wary of the crusaders, the morality police. They usually have a lot to hide.

Why did he leave himself wide open like that? Because privileged, rich, bright guys like him think they are untouchable. The rules don't apply to them.

You don't have to wonder how his wife feels. Just look at her face as she stands by her man during his resignation speech. The prostitute in question could be his daughter!

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

wordtryst - I know! It's like when Clinton hooked up with Monica Lewinsky. How would he feel if a man around his age had a relationshiop with Chelsea back when she was in her late teens?
