Bold New CNN Show: The Sheriff of Wall Street Who Visited Prostitutes as Governor & Did No Jail Time…


From the press release for a new CNN show featuring Wash Post columnist Kathleen Parker and former NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer:

Spitzer, a Democrat who resigned as governor in March 2008 after acknowledging visiting a prostitute, is a well respected political mind and a take-no-prisoners prosecutor who has been often referred to as the "Sheriff of Wall Street."

"Take no prisoners" or "do no time"? I like Parker, but Spitzer, yeesh.

Reason.tv's interview with Spitzer's former madam, who did time for supplying the "well respected political mind" with hookers even as he pushed for prosecution of prostitution rings. Kristin Davis is running for NY governor on a platform focused on legalizing sex work, pot and gay marriage and pointing out the inequities of a criminal justice system that, er, put her in jail and let Gov. Spitzer go on to CNN.
