Gov. Spitzer: The Emperor's no clothes
Mr. Clean probably will step down tonight after revelations of visiting high-price call girl or girls affiliated with the recently busted Emperor's Club. I'd read the story about the bust last week in The New York Times and marveled at the prices, as high as $5000 an hour for an "iconic" prostitute (Moll Flanders?). Just go to www.nytimes.com to follow it, with text messages and a federal wiretap and more at center of it....The paper has the extremely unflattering AP photo above at top of its site right now, from Spitzer's presser today. He looks like Walter Brennan after he lost his teeth.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
