If your job description once included cracking down on prostitution rings, it’d be rather silly to start patronizing them yourself. Either nobody told that to Eliot Spitzer, crusading attorney general-turned-New York governor, or he’s a few subpoenas short of a brief. Earlier this year, Spitzer was outed as “Client 9″ of the Emperors Club call-girl ring, having spent nearly $80,000 on prostitutes over a decade.
After a chorus of “He did what?”, Spitzer’s wife grimaced in support as her husband resigned to a quiet life of consultancy and plea bargains. The public face of Spitzer’s credit card conquests turned out to be Ashley Dupre, an aspiring singer whose prostitution paid the rent.
Hustler and Penthouse have offered the bosomy 22-year-old considerably more than Spitz’s measly $5000-a-night to pose nude. But the former Girls Gone Wild dancer has allegedly turned down these offers in favor of the real pot at the end of the rainbow — her own reality show. — Charles Bottomley
