If you have Eliot Spitzer fatigue, stop reading here. If not, feel free to continue.
The Spitzer scandal raised this question: How are lawyers like prostitutes? It’s an admittedly groan-worthy joke, fit to be told by an inebriated guest at a local bar association dinner. But maybe there are a few insights to be gleaned from comparing the learned profession to the oldest profession. For brief musings, see our column in this week’s Observer.
Additional Spitzer whore news, from the AP:
Stop that $1 million check: It turns out the call girl linked to Eliot Spitzer had already shed her clothes for “Girls Gone Wild” as an 18-year-old while partying in Miami, Florida, the video company’s founder said Tuesday.
Upon learning that Ashley Alexandra Dupre was already in his company’s archives, Joe Francis revoked his $1 million offer for her to appear in a non-nude spread for his company’s new magazine.
But shed no tears for “Kristen.” As Rachel Sklar reports over at Eat the Press, the sultry songstress has earned a small fortune — definitely six figures, possibly seven — from online downloads of her music. She also has offers to pose for Penthouse and Hustler that could yield a million-dollar payday.
