He's a Democrat, so at least we know it can't be a gay prostitution ring!

Only two years ago, Spitzer could do no wrong. Oh, how the mighty have fallen . . .

I thought Spitzer was untouchable? And it turns out he's paying $5000/hr to get touched.

Emperor's Club VIP

US authorities have smashed an online escort service that gave its prostitutes a one to seven diamond-ranking, with a "seven diamond" woman costing $US5500 ($5921) an hour.

Four organisers and managers of the international ring were arrested by US authorities and charged with conspiracy to violate federal prostitution laws, Newsday.com reported.

Another two of the men were also accused of attempting to launder more than $1.08 million in illicit proceeds from business.

The ring was known as the Emperor's Club VIP and offered 50 prostitutes in New York, Paris, Washington, Miami and London, The New York Times reported.

I wonder if the diamond rating system reflects looks or acts willing to perform. If the later, I have to wonder if he ordered a Cleveland Steamer?

$6,000 an hour? Do they prorate? If so, $50 will buy me enough time.

Maybe he's just trying to make himself eligible to run as Hillary's VP.

Stop the madness. Legalize and regulate prostitution.

We can tax each act.

You can see what a 5-diamond girl looks like. Sort of.

No, clearly Hillary engineered this story to come out today and overshadow Obama's inevitable win in Mississippi.
