Like so many prominent Democrats, Eliot Spitzer, formerly the Governor of New York, was born rich, the son of a billionaire. His vast wealth apparently gave him a sense of entitlement, which he expressed most famously as Client Number 9. Spitzer’s attachment to prostitutes derailed his political career, but probably not for long. Meanwhile, one of his call girls has written a book in which she says that Spitzer liked to strangle her.
Until now, Spitzer has been best known for keeping his calf-high black dress socks on during sexual encounters. The ever-inventive New York Post has put all of this together in one of its classic front pages:
Rough sox! All I can say is, it’s a good thing the Democrats aren’t conducting a war on women.
Being a Democrat means never having to say you’re sorry. Or mean it, anyway. Spitzer is still a young man. While his run for the NY City Comptroller office crashed and burned, much like Anthony Weiner’s mayoral race, I suspect we will see him again in the public sphere before long. Like so many Democrats, after all, he has a billion dollars behind him.
