Grand Theft Auto Critic Spitzer Resigns in Disgrace

Client 9 has become Disgraced ex-Governor 1.

Eliot Spitzer, the moral crusader who, as GamePolitics reported, was so offended by the interactive prostitution in Grand Theft Auto, has vacated his office following revelations by the New York Times that he was a regular patron of high-priced call girls.

Here’s what Spitzer, a rising star in the Democratic party, had to say about GTA during his 2006 election campaign:

Media content has gotten more graphic, more violent and more sex-based… Currently, nothing under New York State law prohibits a fourteen-year old from walking into a video store and buying… a game like ‘Grand Theft Auto,’ which rewards a player for stealing cars and beating people up. Children can even simulate having sex with a prostitute…

FBI wiretaps captured him singing a different tune to the managers of the Emporers Club VIP service. Spitzer haggled over payment details as he arranged for a petite brunette named Kristen to rendezvous with him at a Washington, D.C. hotel. Later, Kristen and the escort service manager were overhead discussing Spitzer’s proclivities:

Manager: [Spitzer] would ask you to do things, that, like you might not think were safe. You know – I mean that – very basic things…

Kristen: I have a way of dealing with that. I’d be like, ‘listen, dude, do you really want the sex?"

And, apparently, Spitzer did. We wonder whether he’ll be picking up a copy of GTA IV now that he will have plenty of time on his hands…

UPDATE: The NY Times has identified Kristen as 22-year-old Ashley Alexandra Dupre (left), a struggling, would-be singer. You can check out her MySpace page. We’re willing to bet that this will be a boost to her career. Expect to see her on Larry King within a few days.

The next revelation will likely be the release of the audio tapes of the Guv’s, uh, dickering about the arrangements.

    […] I could go on forever about this shit, but I’m going to wrap things up here. I’d like to say that I think it’s great to see prominent figures like Stephen King speak out about things like this. Unless you bring the idiocy of these kinds of things to the forefront, states like: Massachusetts, Arizona, Louisiana, Minnesota, New York, Utah, Kansas and California, are just going to slip them into law without true opposition. And since no one really takes the gaming community seriously, it’s even better to have a non-gamer speak up and say “Hey – I think this is bullshit too”. […]

    […] The newsmedia seems keen on overlooking the fact that New York’s Gubernatorial Pimp was once one of their lovechildren in the war on video games. They plastered him and his comments everywhere denouncing violence and obscenity in video games, most especially the prostitution in the Grand Theft Auto games. Maybe he’s just a stickler for details and was angry that the video-gamey whoring wasn’t true to his personal experiences. […]

    I don’t think one can say anything positive about the girl because she just seems to be trying to CHA on this and will probably do it again soon. Lets avoid using derogotory terms like slut, whole or bitch as while they apply, as better words could be used to describe her.

    The only thing that comes close to Spitzer’s hypocrisy is the dirtiness of the whore who [unwittingly] helped take him down.

    I’d thank her, but, she’s a whore. Sluts are cool, whores aren’t.

    Did I mention she’s a whore? :)

    Maybe the fact that her music sucks was a contributing factor. Spitzer may have reallised that there’s one sure way to stop her singing and thats to put something in her mouth to gag her. The fact that he was willing to not only use something very personal to him to gag her but also pay doing it impresses me greatly, the man’s a damned hero!

    wow, that is so funny. I guess he could not restrain his addictions for sex in office. What an ******* to use the phone to call for a prostitute to bang at work. He shot himself in the foot after all the shit he has been talking especially against GTA. Sounds like that case where like a congressman solicited sex with a government agent in the bathroom. Hypocrits in the government are as numerous as the amount of shit conjured by the news.

    Finally. A media outlet that didn’t just run with the AP wire story (which makes no mention of the fact that Jack faces his own difficulties with the Florida Bar) but actually did some homework of its own. Kudos to the North County Gazette for showing the WSJ and all the other AP wire echoes what journalists really do.

    Nice find, didn’t know about the $1 million for harassment

    “Thompson is seeking $1 million from the Bar for damages he says have resulted from the Bar harassing him by investigating what he says are baseless complaints filed against him by disgruntled adversaries.”

    That’s right Bruce, you didn’t send the bar gay porn, or the “Law Picture Book”, or the “figurative wording” of the Florida Bar looking like a bombed out building. Oh reminds me I sent the Florida Bar Disiplanary Review head an email asking why they took so long to do something about him THey sent an email back. And yes I did not use insulting or explitives.

    Mr. Walter,

    The 1st Amendment is a cherished right of all freedom loving Americans and even if some of us don’t agree with another’s viewpoint, they are still entitled to speak their mind. However, although the 1st Amend provides a great amount of protection there are certain limits. We are now prosecuting Mr. Thompson because we believe his tactics and comments have crossed the line.

    So this morning I had an interesting surprise. As I turned the corner on 25th St., I had to walk past a gauntlet of news vans, cameras, reporters, and crowded bystanders to get to my office. I heard Spitzer’s name mentioned a couple times, but wasn’t sure why exactly they were here, at my office.

    Apparently, Kristen lives in the building next to my office O.o

    Sort of makes you wonder what happens to her now. This isn’t necessarily the best way to end up in the spotlight.

    “Why was this guy wiretapped in the first place?
    Doesn’t that go against his rights? Was this approved somewhere?”

    Yes the wiretap was judicially approved. The story goes is that Spitzer performed some shady bank transactions to pay for his trysts which had an appearance of money laundering. By federal law the bank had to inform the IRS of the suspicious transactions, investigation by the IRS led the IRS to inform the FBI, FBI investigated, found cause to warrant a wiretap, received judicial permission for the wiretap, and went from there. So it was all because of suspicious banking transactions.

    “And is having sex with a prostetute (his private buisness) a real problem at all? Okay, I’m not sure but IF prostitution itself is already illegal in … whereever he did that.”

    While prostitution is illegal this becomes a larger issue because Spitzer’s entire public image relied upon himself presenting a higher moral code than the rest and that his position as current head of the executive branch of New York government and former Attorney General for the state left him in a position with responsibility to persecute illegal activity, such as a prostitution ring (which he has in the past.) Erego he had a severe lapse of judgement which not only left him involved in an illegal activity while having a responsibility to uphold the law, but entirely undermined his entire political career as well. And for all practical purposes this incident with Spitzer is the icing on the cake of his camp utilizing underhanded methods to spy on a political adversary, the deadlock in state government due to Spitzer being at odds certain other individuals in state government, and his downright refusal to listen to public opinion when the public was steadfastly against his driver’s license for illegal immigrants idea.

    At this moment I really fail to see the problem. So what if he was an idiot, foaming at the mouth about video games. So what if he was having sex with a prostitute, so what if he had a wife and kids, it’s none of my damn buisness, or yours, or anyone elses but his and his wifes, if he cheated on her. Sure deserves punishment from her if he cheated. But no public outcry.

    Even though, like most of you, I felt the irony, I think it’s a pity that someone resigns “just for that”. Maybe because I come from a country where the connection between politics and prostitution is almost a tradition (one of our Presidents even died in a prostitute’s arms).

    It doesn’t mean I endorse prostitution : it just means I don’t think that being a client of prostitutes makes you a better or worse politician. Of course, Spitzer’s case was a bit different, because he said something in public and acted the contrary in private.

    @Mr. Blond

    1) Who’s Spitzer’s replacement?

    From an AP article on the whole resignation matter:

    Lt. Gov. David Paterson – Notable points about him being: Democrat, New York’s first black governor, legally blind (as in enough sight in his right eye to walk around unaided and get by as a very very very nearsighted person, but for the purposes of things like drivers licenses he’s considered blind), Harlem as his political base, 53 years old, has been in New York government since his election to the state Senate in 1985, reputation as a conciliator.

    2) Will he try to carry on his anti-gaming agenda?

    Hard to say, but personally I’m not considering it too likely. The gaming complaint was a pretty small part of what Spitzer went after; he’s better known for going after corporations and prostitution. Paterson will likely be busy for a while cleaning up the current mess, then if “carrying on” anything, it’d probably be the corporation thing.

    Plus it’d be a lot more difficult for him to look at something and get offended by it. He probably would need to be two inches from a screen or picture to make out any detail, and that’s not exactly conductive to instant offense.

    @This is kind of a pity from the stand point that the guy did do a fair bit to pressure insurance companies and the like to clean up their act and stop cheating people out of their money.

    Still, he brought this upon himself. The hypocrisy’s amusing and all, but I really feel sorry for his wife. Cheating on her with prostitutes is a pretty horrible thing to do to her.

    I will give him a little credit for resigning so quickly though. It spares a lot of people that aren’t him a lot of grief and lets the rest of the local government move on quicker.

    Unfortunately for Spitzer, that the transportee consented to being transported doesn’t vitiate a Mann Act violation. Indeed, you’ll find that many notorious Mann Act prosecutions (e.g., Jack Johnson and Charlie Chaplin) involved women who more than willing crossed state lines with the offender. Nor where the cases Johnson and Chaplin cases about exploitation. They weren’t even about prostitution. The “for an immoral purpose” requirement was satisfied by the fact of consentual but adulterous sex.

    @Sebastian: The FBI is involved in this because there’s a lot more to the case than just prostitution; possible money laundering (the investigation was triggered by the IRS,) multiple state boundaries, organized “criminal activity,” possible political corruption at the top level of a state government, etc.

    @JackDon’tKnowJack: While the Mann Act may not be all that dusty, that example is drastically different from Spitzer’s pit that he dug for himself. That example is comparing deliberate exploitation of individuals to a situation in which all involved parties gave their willing consent.

    @Creature No 9, who wrote:

    “Johns usually aren’t prosecuted . . . “

    Guess again. In many major cities where prosititution is a perceived problem, the police frequently conduct reverse stings that target nothing but the johns. And in many cases (e.g., Orange County, FL) they post the booking photos of the arrested johns on their website. And, while it is a misdemeanor, many cities have passed forefiture ordinances that allow them to confiscate the vehicles of the arrested johns. And beating the rap is no guarentee that you’ll get your vehicle back.

    Johns usually aren’t prosecuted; it’s normally the people running the ring. Also, soliciting prostitution is only a misdemeanor in most places. The only way to get that up to a federal felony is with a law that hasn’t really been used since the 20’s. Cracking out an obsolete law to go after him would smack of political persecution.

    If public funds were used to transport the “goods”, well that’s a whole different matter. (Of course, his archnemesis, Bruno, misused state transportation as well and got away with it.)

    @ Christian Astrup

    I’ll give you that he regrets being caught, but I find it hard to believe that he actually regrets his actions. If he truly regretted it he wouldn’t of been a long time client. A man who does something he regrets, does it once and never again. A man who made it habit to do something immoral and gets caught only regrets getting caught. I rarely believe a person who apologizes for crimes at their own trial or after their wrongs have been revealed by the press. The best I’ll give them is that they made a good apology.

    Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe he regrets it. If he does, he and his family have my sympathy. If he only regrets getting caught, I’m sorry for his family for having to live with the monster and having to be there at his fall.

    @ Anonymous

    I don’t know about that. I get the feeling he’s been “visiting” this prostitution ring for a while. Say… since before he busted one back in 2004. That’s not simple hypocrisy. It’s not like he railed against gays and was then discovered in a gay relation (I can forgive that). It seems the whole time he was upholding the law, he’s been systematically breaking it. What’s worse he spoke out against prostitution in video games and, as I mentioned already, helped bust one. That’s like Super Saiyan 3 Hypocrisy.

    If, like I suspect, he’s been a regular to this particular prostitution ring, how do we know he hasn’t previously stalled and even prevented litigation against it? This can really color his entire career and even tarnish the New York D.A.’s office! The real question: How did he expect to get away with this?

    Falling happens accidentally or unintentionally. You can’t unintentionally sleep with a hooker so many times you get a client number. The only thing this guy did unintentionally is get caught. Either way he’s a hypocritical bastard and ought to be called out on it.

    @ Gameboy,

    I can forgive hypocrisy.

    That doesn’t mean I do but that’s for other reasons, his behavior was stupid. A stupid politician is dangerous to the public. Good ridance.

    Now, an intelligent politician can also be something of an ass and even a very dangerous person indeed. But will not cause massive trouble by bieng stupid. By being an ass, yes. See George W. Bush.

    Good fucking riddance. Serves the prick right! ANYONE who cheats on their wife/girlfriend doesn’t deserve anything! ESPECIALLY WHEN THEYRE BLEEDING HYPPOCRATES!

    Wow. That was faster than I expected. Bill Clinton would be sad.

    @ Christian Astrup

    You want to feel bad for him? What? Sorry, I don’t even secretly want to feel bad for him. Regardless of your opinion on prostitution, a former D.A. who has put plenty of people away for that very crime should of known better. What’s that saying? “You reap what you sow.”

    People always want athletes to behave as proper role models for children, but what about our elected officials? Shouldn’t they also live up to a higher standard? We’re all human, but this degree of hypocrisy is ridiculous.

    Getting drunk/high I can forgive. Missing a few practices/votes I can forgive. But sheer unadulterated (hey that’s kinda funny) hypocrisy? I can’t forgive.

    I feel for his wife. Poor woman looks like she’s aged 20 years in 2 days. Any guesses as to how long before she files for divorce and cleans the lint outta Eliot’s deep pockets?

    Spitzer won’t buy GTAIV, he’s the type to say it won’t satiate his urges on real prostitutes. His wife will probably take the abuse and try to make him look good in public but be destroyed on the inside to know he planned to sleep with another woman.

    I say good riddance, he cleaned the building by removing himself from office. I’ll give him a clap for that, nothing more.

    Now THAT is hypocrisy. Gotta love politics, especially when you say one thing and do another. Its like my dad telling me not to smoke as he lights up his 3rd in a row.

    Patronizing a prostitute is. Too bad his money and position will keep him from suffering any “real” punishment.

    Perhaps not in this case. He’s got some powerful enemies, and the furor forced him to resign before he got much of a chance to use his position to defend himself. At the least his political career is dead, he’ll probably get disbarred along the way, and it’s not like many corporations are going to be welcoming to him even before this.

    So even if he does escape jail time, he isn’t likely to be working any jobs he’d enjoy any time soon. That’s not exactly “real” punishment, but it’s close.

    Some fanboy of Jack’s over at jaablog made the mistake of stepping to me with a grip o’ smack-talk. I pimp-slapped him so hard (figuratively speaking) that my palms still hurt. The fool musta not known who he playin’ wid.

    There was a very interesting arguement about this here at work. There are a few guys who would like to see prostituion legalised and that what Spitzer did wasn’t that bad.

    My argument in response to this is that even if it were legal, he should have to step down. The idea is that he wants to maintain his marriage so this would become his dirty little secret. If anyone found out about his dirty little secret, legal or not, they could use it to compromise his position as a public servant. They could and would use it as blackmail.

    Boy, she’s taking advantage of each and every day of that extension of the deadline to file her repot, ain’t she?

    Although, considering the responses she’ll probably get from Jack-O when she finally does, can’t say I blame her for stretching it out as long a spossible.

    Sorry, I just had to check out her MySpace profile. I didn’t look at it too much, but I couldn’t see anything that makes it appear blatant that she is a high class prostitute. But I suppose that’s what makes her so “high class”.

    @ hayabusa75 & gs2005

    Thanks, but I almost wish it wasn’t accurate in my assertion.

    “And, apparently, Spitzer did. We wonder whether he’ll be picking up a copy of GTA IV now that he will have plenty of time on his hands…”

    See? See? That would work in a conversation. You have finally become a proper cheeky bastard. Don’t take that the wrong way – it’s good.
