Playing online poker, evil.
Scoring yourself an expensive ho when you're a self-righteous, moral crusading married father of three, good.
At least that's what New York Governor and thorn-in-the-ass of the online gambling industry Eliot Spitzer, aka Client 9, was thinking on February 13 when he contacted Emperors Club VIP to arrange a meeting in a Washington hotel with a high-priced prostitute named Kristin (or Kristen), who we hear was "an American, petite, pretty brunette, about 5'5" and 105 pounds."
Can't wait to see her photos floating around. Sounds pretty hot.
The two met in room 871, but unfortunately for Spitzer, his initial phone call was wiretapped, and now the formerly squeaky clean crime fighter is under investigation in connection with the prostitution ring and likely on his way out of the governor's mansion.
Transcript from Spitzer's press conference today here.
UPDATE: Reading the court affidavit on Smoking Gun, looks like Spitzer paid Kristen $4300 for sex and had booked 4 hours with her but lasted less than 2 hours.
UPDATE: His rendezvous with Kristen wasn't Spitzer's first time. The moral crusader who considered online gambling a pernicious evil had credit at the Emperors Club, meaning he had previously paid money to the prostitution ring. Also, News Day blog says that the Emperors Club booker told Kristen that Client 9 "would ask you to do things that, like, you might not think were safe," to which Kristen said she could handle guys like that.
