    as best i can tell he used his salary.

    •  What? Are you serious? (0+ / 0-)

      I thought he (essentially) embezzled the money! Like he was dipping into the state's kitty to pay for his hooker. Are you kidding me? the "state funds" in question were his salary? Do you have a link for that? Because, if true, this whole thing is a hatchet job.

      I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson

      •  if he embezled state funds (0+ / 0-)

        they would have indicted him.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/...

        he was under some scrutiny for te payments as "money laundering" and "Mann Act"  but that's not much.

        This was entirely a sex scandal, and if he had some
        elan he'd have said "Look at my wife, she's gorgeous,
        it takes a $10K Hooker to compete with her".

        or

        "Hey, it's my money, it's my time, it's between
        me and my wife'.

            I'd just like to know who can with a straight face
            claim Spitzer used state funds for prostitution.

            It's legally a clear defamatory statement, and could
            easily get someone sued.

            Now you want to say Spitzer is a whore-monger? Sure.
            Call him a John, a libertine, a Roueax, a adulterer.

            Absolutely,  but, I don't care if a politician is screwing
            around on the side as long as it doesn't affect their
            day job.

            If he were banging a lobbyist, that's a problem.

            If he were banging the head of an important state agency
            who he appointed, or affected budget, that's a problem.

            If he's banging a hired professional? At most it raises some issues of violation of state code, but, I wouldn't convict him.
            Very few men are convicted of using the services of prostitutes.

            •  They bang those folks more metaphorically (0+ / 0-)

              not with their dicks, but with their votes. And in the case of POTUS, with his pen.
