Spitzer’s Very Hot Water

Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, takes a look at some of the possible criminal charges that could result from Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D-NY)’s prostitution scandal. Spitzer, who’s been one of the most crusading state AGs in recent years, is in some very hot water. He’s likely to face several federal racketeering charges, violations of the Mann Act and potentially money laundering charges as well.

Gov. Spitzer was known for being unwilling to compromise with the white-collar defendants he prosecuted in New York. He shouldn’t get any disparate treatment because of his position.
