No Prostitution Charges for Eliot Spitzer
According to Michael J. Garcia, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York: “We’ll look hard. If there are violations of the law, we’ll charge them.”
Except, you know, when there are violations of the law committed by Eliot Spitzer. When that happens, we don't so much charge them as we start finessing the requirements for bringing charges.
Which, if you think about it, makes sense.
Since Eliot Spitzer is just a little bit better than you and me, and Mark Brener, Cecil Suwal, Temeka Rachelle Lewis, and holistic health counselor and part-time booker for the escort service Tanya Hollander, it might have looked a bit unseemly to prosecute Mr. Spitzer.
