NY Governor Eliot Spitzer is expected to resign. He admitted to officials that he has been involved in a high-end prostitution ring called The Emperors Club VIP. The call-girl ring rented out prostitutes at rates up to $5,500 per hour. Reports suggest that he was "client number 9" and that he met with an employee on February 13 in Washington D.C.
Spitzer was supposed to have a meeting with Cardinal Egan today, but the meeting was just cancelled.
Spitzer was caught because of phone records that linked him to the prostitution ring. A statement from Spitzer is expected to be released momentarily. Politics and scandal go together like peanut butter and jelly so this shouldn't be too shocking.
