Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York was meeting with prostitutes on a regular basis while he was governor. Although he was married, he would arrange to meet these prostitutes at prominent hotels on the East coast. Eventually, he was caught with his pants down bt federal police officers. He resigned from office. He used government money to pay for the prostitutes. However, he was never publicly arrested or criminally charged because the N.Y. judicial system uses two sets of standards. One set is for the privileged, and the other set is for the public.
According to the media, Eliot Spitzer paid up to $80,000 for a variety of prostitutes over a period of several years — first while he was attorney general, and later as governor. The acting U.S. Attorney General of New York cut a deal with Spitzer, and agreed not to seek a criminal prosecution in exchange for Spitzer not exposing other government workers.
Despite his track record as a liar, cheater, and con artist, CNN hired him as a commentator for "In the Arena".
