Pretty much. Very few people would have had the moral authority to chide Clinton for his indiscretions. But the lying was sort of an insult to the people like me that were pretty certain it was true.

That's the whole point of my calling out Spitzer as scum. The case in point he proves, yet again, is that real men can own up to their partners about what they want and need, have the emotional honesty and trust to overcome jealousy, and everyone can still get what they want. In this day and age, and given the spectrum of relationships in modern society, commitment doesn't have to be equivalent to monogamy - but the one thing unchanged from this generation to the ones previous is you just don't do things behind your partner's back. Most people learn that lesson early on but this guy still thinks the solution is secrecy and lies upon lies.

Quoting Blackbird (Reply 164):
The initial thing that got this started were large bank transactions, which due to the amount of money moved around were flagged. This happens a lot of times, but rarely federal action is taken because a lot of people who do this are rich and have the money to prove it. Federal-action in the form of investigation -- and if necessary, prosecution usually occurs when the person in question doesn't have all that much money and are moving ridiculous amounts of cash around.

You should try talking about something you know about. Your statement above couldn't be more wrong.

Remember - this investigation started because the BANK came forward to report suspicious transactions.

We target rich people and poor people who move money around in suspicious transactions.

Quoting PacNWJet (Reply 182):
But bringing things back to Eliot Spitzer, the ironic part, and the reason why he should be in the trouble that he is in, is despite his personal feelings on the matter, as an attorney general and prosecutor he used his office to prosecute prostitution. We can sit around all day long and tut tut those who condemn prostitution on moral grounds. But the salient point is that Eliot Spitzer didn't tut tut prostitution, he prosecuted it as a crime. So our moral judgements about prostitution are irrelevant in the Spitzer case. What matters in this case is if he used the law to go after prostitution as a crime, he must be held to the same standard.

Yep. What's good for the goose.....

Quoting Fumanchewd (Reply 184):
I agree. And the same standard would be a misdemeanor charge and he would not lose his job. I am not positive of the answer, perhaps a cop can help-if an off duty police officer was caught soliciting a prostitute, I don't believe that he would be fired in most instances. A suspension and he would probably be back on the force.

A policeman fired? No. However, if I, as an employee of the Department of Justice had engaged in the conduct Spitzer did, I'd be terminated. Period.

The operating word here is 'consent'. That also can translate to 'respect'. My wife and I are both very well aware of our wants and needs, and that boundary is never crossed.

Again, there are certain mistakes and indiscretions that can be forgiven and understood according to the person's age. Spitzer's, at 48, should have been mature enough to know how to deal with his life.

Even if it was true and illegal, we're not talking about corruption, or any other misconduct that would actually hurt the citizens of New York. His family would be, but that's a private affair.

Let's make a list of things that are illegal but are "private affairs":

1. Prostitution
2. Possession of a controlled substance
3. DUI
4. Operating a business without a license
5. Failure to pay taxes
6. Arson
7. Hunting without a license
8. Assault with a deadly weapon
9. Breaking and entering
10. Sexual molestation
11. Manslaughter

My list goes up to eleven.  Wink

This is fun, huh?

Why is the governor of a state allowed to break the law and call it a "private affair"? I bet all those people Eliot Spitzer prosecuted would have loved to call their crimes "private affairs." Then maybe Spitzer would not have followed through on his prosecution of them. "Gee, Mr. Attorney General Spitzer, yes what I did was illegal, but it was a private affair." Too bad none of the people Spitzer prosecuted thought of that one. Maybe he would have said, "Gosh,you're right; I never thought about it that way." Come on. Let's get real here.

This whole thing is just getting started

What kills me here, is this notion that whatever happens in private is nobodies business but there own. Sorry, but that is just another example of the law-exempt supporters to rationlise criminal activity when it comes down to sex. He broke the law, what else needs to be said. He went after people, in some cases for no good reason. Now, the Emperor has no clothes. So where does it end? If you kill your partner in a some sadistic auto-erotic sex session, are there no repercussions if the assailant claims it was consensual? Come on now.

What Blackbird doesn't understand is the fact that suspicious transactions MUST be reported to the government - no matter which direction the funds are headed.

If the bank report had been brought to me, I wouldn't have jumped to the conclusion that it was definitely a bribe. I would have also explored the possibility that Spitzer was laundering money.

Basically the bank thought something was fishy, and alerted the feds.

He first wanted to transfer over $10k, which requires the bank to report the transaction to the government anyway. No matter who you are, this is done. Then he decided to break up the transaction into slices, and asked the bank to take his name off the wire. The bank told him they can't do that. Only a moron would think this was on the up and up. Of course he got investigated.

The official JCS17 statement on the issue:

I wholeheartedly supported the prosecution of Clinton, as I did Duke Cunningham and Larry Craig. Eliot Spitzer should immediately resign and be fully prosecuted. The liberals are saying, like after Clinton lied under oath, "It's all about sex!" No, Clinton committed a federal crime as did Spitzer in paying for the prostitute to go over state lines. For some reason, the "personal life" defense rings false. That's like saying I should not be concerned about government. After all, the government has its hand in my pocket and life (through law and taxes), why shouldn't I have a say on how elected officials follow the law as it is currently enacted. It's like me committing tax evasion and claiming that I have an exclusive position and cannot be prosecuted. He broke the law, send him to a Fed.

On a personal level, prostitution is completely disgusting and the Johns that employ them are absolute losers, who ought to seriously seek counseling.

The banks have to report all suspicious transactions, outbound or inbound. However -- federal action usually only occurs if the person doesn't have the means to move the amount of money they did. Spitzer is rich.

My opinion is that the DOJ is not just tracking every large transaction of Democrats because they have to (they are supposed to look into anything at least superficially, however if the person has enough money and stuff no extensive searching is done), but to use any excuse they can to to get warrants to go on a fishing expedition.

Older men are the number one impetus behind that trade and have been from it's earliest beginnings. If you think Spitzer is the only 48yo hookin' up with high priced call girls...think again. They're high-priced..just what age group do you think can easily afford that.

But Spitzer is a prosecutor, and an aggressive one at that. I am much more disturbed by a certain level of stupidity reflected by his actions. If he was (rightfully or wrongfully) creating plenty of enemies by his actions, he must have known that those opposed to him would try to bring him down.

Absolutely, and that's can only be explained in arrogance beyond belief. Just who did he think he was fooling???
Somebody knew! Plus a 22 year old??? A 22 year old couldn't keep a secret if their life depended on it. But Spitzer and his aggressive 'law & order' motto (or Right or Wrong as he calls it).. has run away with the Nobel Prize for complete arrogance dripping with stupidity - not for cheating with the Co-ed... but doing so in his high profile position and thinking know one would ever find out.

My only problem with Spitzer is he's in the same boat as Swaggert, Baker, Haggard, Guiliani, Craig and too many to list here.. insisting that wrong-doings be prosecuted at all and any cost, building their careers on right vs wrong on so many issues/beliefs -- only to get found out in a sexual web of deceit.

One of them is over 60, the other is over thirty, and the gay one is 20 and also my best friend.  Smile

My, you are pissy when you meet people who don't hang around with scum.

Yeah, they did, got As all the way to Calc II where I stopped in favor of aviation. You, apparently, don't know what a percentage is. Let me show you... 25%=.25. Take the guy friends you have and divide it by 25%...

Pointless argument with no facts, besides the fact that your math was wrong. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks, eh?

Nothing else needs to be said about 'a young fella' who 'tells everyone' he only knows 3 guys..and they are as you described above-

I can see your problem. I chose that low number because it's easier for your math skills. Remember, we've established that they're quite behind.

You need to quit losing while you're ahead.  Embarrassment

Oh, and your insults are on the same level as your math skills.

I love to joke about prostitution, and so do my friends, but they've never hired the services of one.

Yep, you (a 16-20) and the 60yo, a 30+yo and a 16yo gay guy sitting around joking about prostitution...
..if that scenario doesn't send chills down anyone's spine...nothing will.

You chose that number because it is the truth... because your 1st and visceral response is usually 'the most truthful'..and sadly, again..that's pretty creepy.

Since this thread has become much too serious, here's more comments from the comedians on the Spitzer's case.

You're weird. Like watching a lava lamp...so simple yet so mesmerizing.  hypnotized  Anyway, I've had fun insulting you...need to take out some childish glee on asshats some time...but you might really believe the  redflag  you post...so back off the Ketaset. Try not to be like some of the people here. I've been wrong before, and terribly so, and admitted it. You made a post without facts that supports your ludicrous viewpoint, and you made a simple but idiotic error with some basic math. I called you out on it to piss you off and make a point, and I succeeded. Now you're just being trite.

Now I think I'll go off to bed (With THREE other guys, I'm making way more that Spitzer's ho!) and leave you with that sumptuous image. Hope you have sweet dreams, sunshine.  sly

Looks aside, sometimes hookers will perform "special services" that you'd never be able to get your girlfriend to do...

What sort of "special service"/twisted perversion carries a $4300 price tag? For that amount of money, I'd expect sets, props, a stunt coordinator, and at least a few additional cast members!

Well, to be fair, 1300 of the total was a down payment for his next appointment.....

Ah. Then the next obvious question is, do the people of New York state need a governor who is so fiscally incompetent that he can't find a qualified hooker for less than $3000? I realize it's a government contract and the bids were likely to have been "padded" a bit, but come on! Was $3000 per the best deal he could get?

Well he had to comply with purchasing from a certified minority vendor as well as ensure that at least 30% of all parts were American made and make sure that the hooker has a non discrimination policy and that she works for a small business at least 15% of the time so that all adds up Smile

Actually an article in today's Atlanta Journal & Constitution stated that the ho in question was only billed out at the $1,000 level.
