I am poised at the computer, refreshing the NYT front page every few minutes so I don't miss the statement from Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who "has informed his most senior administration officials that he had been involved in a prostitution ring."
What most interests me about this story is that on Friday, the NYT reported on the uncovered prostitution ring, Emperor's Club V.I.P., which advertised high-price escorts on a website that showed pictures of women (without faces) with "names like Sienna and Christine." Just to be clear, I don't think I was on that website. Also, with all due respect to women named "Sienna," "Christine" is just not that exotic a name. That escort must have appealed to customers who have very refined tastes.
UPDATE: Spitzer's super-short statement is here. He apologizes. I do not want to dwell on Gov. Spitzer's misery, but I am interested to know what the future holds. He owned up to his failing and apologized, but what next? Remember, he is a superdelegate. . . .
