Eliot Spitzer has some issues. Apparently, someone who spouts "law and order" drivel from the highest mountaintop -- including touting his numerous victories over the evil forces of various escort services and their customers -- will have hell to pay when he, himself, is found to be a criminal involved in similar wrongdoing.

And I should add that, while I enjoy seeing politicians hoisted by their own petard as much as the next guy, I think the best thing that will come out of this is a whole bunch of people questioning whether hiring a prostitute should really be a crime -- or at least whether tracking down and prosecuting people who do so is really a worthwhile use of our limited law enforcement resources, especially given that there is plenty of non-consensual crime going on out there.
