Disgraced former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer will face no federal charges against him, Michael J. Garcia, the U.S. attorney in Manhattan, announced Thursday afternoon, The New York Times reports.

After only 14 months in office, Spitzer resigned his position in March after it was revealed he was a regular client of a prostitution ring known as the Emperor's Club V.I.P.

In their probe, federal prosecutors looked into whether the politician – who built his professional reputation as a dogged State Attorney General nicknamed "The Enforcer" – had possibly concealed or used laundered funds, or used campaign contributions for his prostitutes.
