Granted, my friend Roger Stone doesn't like Eliot Spitzer one iota, but this piece does raise the continuing question of why there was no sanction for his hijynx.....I don't think he even had to go to "john school" which is the token punishment johns get in the rare instances they are prosecuted. Roger suggests a more severe punishment.
I still think being condemned to doing a soon to fail commentary show on CNN is a form of punishment, but some want a more tangible pound of flesh.
If the Spitzer Doctrine is that patronizing a prostitute is a personal choice issue for men, then why isn't the same true for the other participant in the transaction ? That was one of the reasons Kristin Davis raised the inequity in her campaign. I don't really think it was the expectation of legalization as much as a desire to point out the dichotomy between the system's treatment of the sexes for the same offense.
It's one of those things that makes you scratch your head and say, 'gee I never looked at it that way before.'
