A (Most Likely Partial) Chronicle of the Criminal Life of Eliot Spitzer

Nobody can do one like dirty trickster Roger Stone:
Former New York Governor and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer may be the most corrupt Governor in New York history. Now there is word of his acting to block the release of emails which detail prosecutorial misconduct when he was Attorney General and personal animus towards AIG's Hank Greenberg. Eight of ten charges brought against Greenberg by Spitzer have been dismissed with the two remaining charges being highly technical and are also expected to be dismissed. 
Spitzer financed two campaigns for Attorney General with more than $9 million in illegal loans from his billionaire father. He lied to the New York Times and the New York Daily News repeatedly denying the existence of the loans. He also perjured himself in a civil suit in which he denied the existence of the loans under oath. He ultimately admitted the illegal transactions but only after obtaining the shield of the New York Attorney's office. 
Spitzer clearly also ordered the use of State resources in his effort to utilize the state police to spy on former Republican Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno and fabricate documents to discredit the Republican. The use of State's resources for political purposes is a felony. 
Spitzer violated the Mann Act transporting a prostitute over five state lines for a tryst at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. Evidentially, there are no hookers in the District of Columbia. In 2009, a Republican New York State Supreme Court Judge was convicted of violating the Mann Act when he transported a hooker from Buffalo to a judicial conference in Frankfort, KY. While I understand the need to import amusement to a town like Frankfort, I must question why the Judge went to prison and rich boy Eliot Spitzer walked.

  1. Another demonstration of Hayek:"Why the Worst Get on Top".
    Government is like a hunt club for creeps like Spitzer.
    I was an anarchist in my youth, then accepted the "mature" option of "libertarian" and I'm now back to anarchist.
    It's one thing to be oppressed, it's quite another to give your permission.

  2. Someone should email this to Bartiromo for her next encounter with the sleazeball!
