Spitzer linked to high-class call girls

Well, there goes any hope of political reform in New York State. The New York Times is reporting on the newspaper's website that Eliot Spitzer is connected to a high-class prostitution ring. By connected, one presumes they mean the New York Governor, until recently touted as a future presidential contender, was shagging the call-girls. Emperors Club, which rented out prostitutes at rates of up to $5,500 per hour, was broken up last week by federal investigators; but administration officials would not disclose whether it was that particular agency that had identified Spitzer as a client. The ethos of Emperor's Club must have resonated with the notoriously perfectionist and hard-charging Governor. The outfit's slogan: "for those accustomed to excellence."
