The Spitzer Scandal

      Comments Off on The Spitzer Scandal

Like most people I have been following the unfolding problems of New York governer Eliot Spitzer with a mixture of amusement and disdain. However one detail seems particularly striking:

[Spitzer] arranged to meet with “Kristen,” a prostitute who charged $1,000 an hour, on February 13 in a Washington hotel and paid her $4,300, the court document said.

That would seem to imply that high-priced prostitutes, like high-priced lawyers, bill in six-minute increments.
