New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet in a Washington hotel room Feb. 13, 2008, with a prostitute from a call-girl business known as the Emperors Club VIP. Spitzer was not named in the complaint but was referenced as "Client 9," according to law enforcement officials. The complaint indicated that he had used the prostitution service before, although it was not known how often. Spitzer resigned from the governor's post, but has made a comeback in 2013 to run for New York City controller.
