What a disgrace, any wonder MSNBC is welcoming him with open arms? Spitzer will fit right in with the rest of the trash there.
Hooker-happy former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was using the services of the Emperors Club escort service starting in early 2006 -- when he was still state attorney general -- and doled out $100,000 on the firm's call girls, according to an upcoming Fortune magazine excerpt from Peter Elkind's "Rough Justice."
"He had been a customer of the Emperors Club for at least two full years and spent more than $100,000 on more than 20 appointments with perhaps 10 escorts in New York City, Washington, Dallas, Palm Beach and San Juan," Elkind, a Fortune editor-at-large, writes in the book.
The tome, excerpted in Fortune editions on sale Monday, claims Spitzer became an Emperors regular by mid-2007, but started using its services far earlier. He would pay extra to allow for flexibility on his schedule and rush in and out without any guards.
" 'He practically attacked me when he walked in the door,' one escort told her phone booker afterward. 'He was just ready,' " the book states.
Spitzer had several flings with an escort Elkind dubs "Angelina," who wasn't a fan of his approach. "It was very businesslike," Angelina told Elkind. "He was not one of those people who I would have said went out of their way to make me feel lovely and nice, like many did. It was very impersonal." The next time, she met [Spitzer] at the Waldorf-Astoria. "It was late at night. He rushed into the room with a baseball cap on, clearly trying not to be recognized, and wanting to get right to it," Elkind reports.
