You know New York Governor Eliot Spitzer slept with a prostitute, in Washington, DC. But: do you know how much he paid? (HINT: Not $5,000. It seemed to be more like $3k with a down payment on a future visit) Why the escort service considered him "unsafe"? The arcane details of obtaining store credit with an international prostitution ring? We read the FBI affidavit so you don't have to, then we summed up the prevailing arguments in favor of Spitzer's survival of this political storm and the trends that could spell his doom, in convenient "bullet point" format. Print it out and read it aloud to co-workers at Happy Hour tonight. They will think you're very clever.
