Eliot Spitzer

All I can say is, that's a lot of scratch:
The club's Web site shows a fee schedule of $1,000 per hour for a three-diamond prostitute and $3,100 per hour for a seven-diamond prostitute. Members of the exclusive Icon Club could reach restricted areas of the Web site and schedule appointments with the highest prostitutes, whose fees started at $5,500 per hour, the press release reads.

I have the same question I did when Vitter got busted: where do these guys get the money, on a public servant's salary? How do they hide spending like this from their wives? Or do they even bother to hide it? "Honey, we need to talk about the amount of money you spend on hookers. Timmy needs braces, and Ashleigh wants her own car."

Or is someone else paying for it, and getting favors in exchange?
