The Tragedy of Eliot Spitzer

March 13, 2008

The man has resigned.
But why was the FBI spying on him in the first place?
Should high-class prostitution even be illegal?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    Greg Palast has an interesting take on the Spitzer thingee:

    Politics and prostitution are such old bedfellows–I just wanted Spitzer to pose on his resignation podium with his whore (that’s who everybody wanted to see anyway)

    Thank for a mature and astute approach to the Spitzer situation. I am tired of the gigglers and condemners. Yours was the approach that all should have taken. We are talking about many serious problems involving what has happened. People do not realize that someone in his bank informed on him but it is questionable if they had the right to do so. There are many parts to this from which the gigglers should take heed. He was about to release an article about the problems in the gov’t involving all the goveners. Mukasey may have been involved. Once again miss use of the office. This squashed it and destroyed many lives. Before too many giggle please remember “The Hangman” Thank you, Mark, for not laughing and for trying to put a mature perspective on a tragic situation.

    Maybe in the case of the high class prostitutes it’s just plain GREED that makes them turn to that.
    I believe alot of women are the victims in prostitution – in situations like this, I don’t buy that.

    Should high-class prostitution be illegal? Isn’t that saying that prostitution should be legal for rich people but not poor people? That sounds un-American to me. The question on whether position should be legal or perhaps do we want it to be legal is the question that should be asked. Should we ask what is wrong with our society where people have to turn to prostitution to make a living?
    On a side note: Difference in $5000 prostitute and a $25 prostitute is pretty clear. If you have trouble figuring that out visit your a large cities government page and may have pages listing, with pictures of those busted for prostitution, Johns and prostitutes.
