Some folks crave the public eye like a drug - or so we've been told, the only thing we've ever been addicted to is Night Train Express Wine Coolers, and we prefer to drink those alone in a dark room without the judging eyes of the masses looking down their noses at us - and Spitzer is apparently jonesing for your attention and possibly even devotion.
Spitzer has granted several interviews recently, and will even appear in a new documentary (Client No. 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer) about the scandal that ended his short stint as governor of New York State.
And in a new GQ interview, Spitzer gets asked if he feels a politician should have to step down from office just for visiting a prostitute, which while calling into question his moral compass (it is infidelity and against the law), doesn't directly affect his ability to govern, necessarily. While he fails to directly offer his own views on the subject, he does pass on some advice form folks on the other side of the Atlantic he received to politicians who might want to be in public office, but keep a very private life.
"I'm probably the worst person to pass judgment on that,” he told the interviewer. “The only thing I can tell you is that I know a surprising number of Europeans who say, 'Move to Europe - nobody cares.'"
Hmm...maybe Client 9 is planning a run at higher office in Amsterdam, where he can visit all of the hookers he wants!
