As we prepare ourselves for the excitement of Eliot Spitzer's return, we should remind ourselves what the onetime governor of New York stood for: accountability, responsibility, and banging three different hookers in a single day.
Rough Justice is the name of a Bananarama song, but it is also the name of an upcoming book by Peter Elkind about Eliot Spitzer's rise and fall, and also the sex he had, with the prostitutes. The New York Post calls it "explosive" thanks to tidbits like this (George Fox, besides being the name of a famous Quaker, was an alias Spitzer used when he did "it" [sex] with call girls):
On one occasion, George Fox had booked an appointment in the late morning at the Mark Hotel, on the Upper East Side, just five minutes' walk from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As usual, he paid the girl in cash - about $1,200 an hour. Not long after it was over, he called (the booker) back, wanting to see a second escort. 'Who else is around?' he asked. (the booker) made the arrangements.
Then, late that afternoon, (Spitzer) called again.
'You're going to think I'm crazy,' he began. 'But can you send somebody else right now?'
He wanted a third girl? The booker chuckled: "You must be Superman! The man of steel!" (The booker) found him another girl. It wasn't even dark yet."
Xxxplosive! The book also alleges that Spitzer had a "favorite," named "Angelina," who he flew out to San Juan while he was there for a conference.
Even more explosively, Rough Justice claims that Mario Cuomo knew about Spitzer's three-a-day habit:
"You don't understand," Cuomo finally declared, his voice quavering with emotion. "He's unfit to be governor. He's a bad man."
Dopp was shocked. Why was Cuomo saying this? Was it because of how Eliot had financed his old campaigns?
"No, it's about more than that," Cuomo cryptically replied, according to Dopp. "It's about the relationship between a man and a woman." He wouldn't go any further.
Interestingly, Cuomo reportedly said the same thing when someone told him that Avatar was "about the environment."
