“Spitzer? I hardly knew her!”
New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has been implicated in a prostitution ring. Now, I’m going to be honest, if Governor Spitzer dallied with a working girl (or, if you prefer, escort) at some point in his past, I’d have no problem with that. I’m sure everyone has some things in their pasts that they’re not proud of. Hell, I’d give him a pass if he was in a “loveless” marriage and wanted to hire someone to deal with his…ahem…executive staff. But, dude, a ring??!!?? Jesus Christ!
Vatican Rewrites Book of Oa
