Eliot Spitzer Won't Be Charged in Prostitution Case

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.
