After spending probably several million dollars and countless hands on interviews with hookers around the world, federal investigators have decided not to charge Eiliot Spitzer with any federal crimes. Despite conducting thousands of “interviews” with prostitutes the agents thought were cute, they could find no evidence that Spitzer used any money for hookers he shouldn't be using in the first place.
Well I guess it is good to know that Eliot only used the family money to sleep with hookers and didn't make the people of NY or the people who contributed to his campaign also contribute to Ashley Dupre's retirement fund.
The article that I read didn't say how much the federal government spent on this probe, but who wants to bet is was in the millions? And Spitzer spent how much on them? Yeah, and then there would have been a few million more spent at trial because they would have had to check out the hookers again and this would have gone on and on and at the end of it all Spitzer would have plead to some crime and probably done six months in jail.
I'm all for convicting some guy if he did something wrong and I'm sure his wife would have loved to see him go to jail, but I don't think it should take millions of dollars spent to hopefully get a guy locked up for six months at further tax payer expense. Believe me, he doesn't need jail time, I'm sure the wife is making his life rightfully miserable. He would probably welcome the sweet embrace of the federal prison system right now.
