Eliot Spitzer is Off the Hook

We always suspected that people in the government can get away with more indiscretions than the average person, but this is just ridiculous.

The NY Post is reporting that former Governor Eliot Spitzer will not face any charges for the sex scandal that cost him his job.

Eliot, who used to be a frequent Emperor's Club client, found a favorite in Ashley Dupre paying $1,000 an hour to be with her. He went by the name "Client #9" and paid for women while he was in DC and Florida.

Regarding the federal probe, Eliot said, "I acknowledge and accept responsibility for the conduct it [the investigation] disclosed. I resigned my position as Governor because I recognized that conduct was unworthy of an elected official."

Since results of the investigation found that he did not misuse public or campaign cash, he basically gets off scott free.
