    Spitzer Hits Up Union Dominated Pension Funds For Vulture Fund

    Even if the Feds think they have a rock-solid case against Eliot Spitzer, it seems the disgraced former governor doesn’t think he’s going to spend time in the big house. Today we learn from the New York Sun’s Jacob Gershman that Spitzer is looking to launch a fund that would buy up distressed real estate […]

    Fed Case Against Spitzer Is Strong

    The New York Post’s Page Six reports the Feds are close to indicting disgraced governor Eliot Spitzer. The federal case against him is so strong that prosecutors had no interest in striking cooperation agreements with the ringleader of Spitzer’s hooker-supplier, Emperors Club VIP, and his second in command, sources told The Post’s Murray Weiss. Prosecutors […]

    What Was Spitzer’s “Dangerous” Kink?

    Did we ever find out what it was that disgraced former New York governor Eliot Spitzer wanted from his hookers that made the folks running the prostitution ring warn girls about his “dangerous” desires? We can’t remember. But Emily Gould spent 36 hours watching Sex and the City, and now she might have an idea.

    Well, it didn’t take long for the video of Eliot Spitzer’s call girl to turn up on the internet. Turn down the volume to avoid the annoying Associate Press voice-over.

    “Kristen,” Ken Stiffed

    Bank of America’s chief executive Ken Lewis received $4.25 million in cash and $4.25 million in restricted stock for his 2007 bonus, less than half of his $18.5 million target. Know who else got screwed? Eliot Spitzer’s hooker, Kristen/Ashley. The intrepid entrepreneur was supposed to receive one million dollars to appear in a “non-nude” magazine […]

    Thanks to everyone who joined us last night for our beery wake for Governor Eliot Spitzer’s political career. Several well-known commenters, including “girl” and “one-two,” made appearances.

    No Amount Of Atoning Can Make Up For This Sin, Eliot Spitzer

    Yes, the revelation that Eliot Spitzer spent 800 million dollars on whores over the past six years seems to imply that he was a bad governor and a worse husband. But up until now, we hadn’t actually felt the pain his actions inflicted, so to say we were personally upset with him or really cared […]

    How The Press Enabled Loathesome Eliot’s Slimy ‘Crusades’

    Well the soon to be former Governor Eliot Spitzer’s limousine brigade is stuck in traffic (and the networks are giving him the OJ Simpson treatment, with helicopters flying overhead showing his slow-motion progress through Manhattan traffic), so let’s take a few moments to reflect on the shabby legacy of the financial press when it comes […]

    That’s what the Post says, and Charlie Gasparino’s sources are corroborating, though there’s always the chance Spitzer will back out of whatever deal’s being negotiated, if he’s not satisfied with the terms (apparently the Governor’s campaigning hard to be allowed to run for/hold office after a short rehabilitation period, and to honor all upcoming, previously […]
