Eliot Spitzer’s “Private Matter”

March 12, 2008

The above posted video of Governor Eliot Spitzer contains a public apology from him for paying a prostitution ring for sex. In said video her refers to the scandal that has the FBI investigating him, as a “private matter.”

Yesterday I wrote about how he referred to the legal case Aisha v. Madonna as a private legal matter as well, though it has federal criminal aspects that fell under his jurisdiction as New York attorney general in 2005. I guess that’s his favorite phrase regarding crime.

It’s just more proof that he needs to step down, as anyone can see the prostitution ring scandal is not a “private matter” but another case where laws were broken. His judgment, much like his marriage vows, clearly broken.

Information released today regarding the prostitution ring called the “Emperors Club” showcased women that claimed to be college educated and outgoing, yet were resorting to prostitution.

The site snapshots tried to paint these women as scholars and dignitaries, when they are prostitutes. You want to show the world you are worthy of its esteem in the grandiose terms you described yourselves – quit prostitution and find honest work.

Men who are customers of prostitutes are deluding themselves as well. These women don’t really like them. They just tell them what they want to hear to get their money. No real woman wants to be going out with man after man after man she doesn’t love, no matter what they tell you. They’re just pretending.

Even the Eliot Spitzer legal documents released by the FBI this week, shows the prostitute he paid didn’t care for him at all. Behind his back, she referred to him with great indifference (“I don’t think he’s difficult. I mean it’s just kind of like . . .whatever. . . I’m here for a purpose. I know what my purpose is. I am not a . . . moron, you know what I mean. So maybe that’s why girls maybe think they’re difficult. That’s what it is, because you’re here for a [purpose]. Let’s not get it twisted – I know what I do, you know.”). Once again, these women tell them what they want to hear to get their money.

There are reports Spitzer paid other women in the prostitution ring for sex in Florida and Washington. He also checked into the hotel with the prostitute under his friend and campaign supporter’s name, George Fox. Upon hearing the news this week, Fox said it, “Comes as a great surprise and disappointment.”

Watching the video, I felt sorry for his wife. She looks so heartbroken and rightfully so. He betrayed her. However, she has nothing to be embarrassed about. It is he who should be ashamed.

It’s proof that some are never satisfied, as his wife is pretty, gave him three pretty daughters and they are wealthy. They lead a comfortable life, but some men are never satisfied and will cheat because they can. Some will let you down like that, through no fault of your own.

They risk it all because they believe they won’t get caught. As much as their wives try to make them happy, that’s just how some men are.

Spitzer like all men who do this, paid a price for his infidelity. God says you reap what you sow. You don’t betray your spouse like that and not pay some price for it in life.

Spitzer was considered a future presidential candidate. Now his political career is gone over prostitutes. It can’t be worth it. He is also in trouble at home.

“These boots are made for walking”…Bill Clinton

He’s not the first politician to do this. Bill Clinton’s political career was severely damaged by his inability to control himself. He left the White House in disgrace and by the skin of his teeth. His unfaithfulness to his spouse overshadowed his presidency and became his legacy. Who really wants that.

Coincidentally, it is being reported that Spitzer’s fall from grace will negatively impact Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign as well, due to their careers being intertwined in New York (article link).

John and Jackie Kennedy

Former president John F. Kennedy repeatedly cheated on his wife Jackie. The book “America’s Queen” stated he caused Jackie much heartache with his conduct, as there were times she went to dinner parties in New York and sat there with the knowledge that her husband had had every woman in the room.

Kennedy had an affair with actress Marilyn Monroe among others:

It was also stated in the book that if Kennedy didn’t have sex with somebody for the day, he developed a headache. He was a sex addict that needed help, as he ceased to control his sexual impulses.

John Major

In Britain, Prime Minister John Major’s legacy was tarnished by a sex scandal as well involving a woman named Edwina Currie. It was tabloid fodder for quite a long time.
