ALBANY - Gov. Eliot Spitzer has informed his most senior administration officials that he had been involved in a prostitution ring, an administration official said this morning.

Mr. Spitzer, who was huddled with his top aides early this afternoon, had hours earlier abruptly canceled his scheduled public events for the day. He is set to make an announcement about 2:15 this afternoon at his Manhattan office.

Mr. Spitzer, a first-term Democrat who pledged to bring ethics reform and end the often seamy ways of Albany, is married with three children.

Just last week, federal prosecutors arrested four people in connection with an expensive prostitution operation. Administration officials would not say that this was the ring with which the governor had become involved.

He had a difficult first year in office, rocked by a mix of scandal and legislative setbacks. In recent weeks, however, Mr. Spitzer seemed to have rebounded, with his Democratic party poised to perhaps gain control of the state Senate for the first time in four decades.

Mr. Spitzer gained national attention when he served as attorney general with his relentless pursuit of Wall Street wrongdoing. As attorney general, he also had prosecuted at least two prostitution rings as head of the state?s organized crime task force.

In one such case in 2004, Mr. Spitzer spoke with revulsion and anger after announcing the arrest of 16 people for operating a high-end prostitution ring out of Staten Island.

"This was a sophisticated and lucrative operation with a multitiered management structure,? Mr. Spitzer said at the time. ?It was, however, nothing more than a prostitution ring.?

Albany for months been roiled by bitter fighting and accusations of dirty tricks. The Albany County district attorney is set to issue in the coming days the results of his investigation into Mr. Spitzer?s first scandal, his aides? involvement in an effort to tarnish Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno, the state?s top Republican.
Sigh. At least it was with women. Adult women. Adult, consenting women. :(

Another "sin" that should be legal, along with soft drugs and euthanasia.

The fact that he's married with kids and cheated on his wife is more of a put-off than the ho-banging IMHO.

The fact that he went after people for the same thing is the most damaging part of this revelation, if the allegations are true.

It's hard to believe a person can make a career out of opposing some so called immorality he partakes of himself.

It this is true he deserves all the laughter and ridiculed he gets. He represented his party and had responsibilities beyond his dick like that slime ball Clinton.

Is that considered cheating? He didn't love the whores. He paid for the sex. Just asking.

Well the vows said to love, cherish, and obey. It didn't say he couldn't have sex. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. So long as he's not giving his heart to another woman, he isn't technically cheating. Besides, women care more about love than sex when it comes to relationships. Men are opposite.

I don't see where in the article it says that it was with adult women or that there was consent. Sex slavery exists.

No, you dont pay for sex...you pay for them to LEAVE.

On another note, had he been a Republican, it would have been a gay underage ring :p

There is a difference between having sex and making love. But I'll drop this if it upsets people.
