    Default Eliot Spitzer talks about...you know, the hookers

    Disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer said this morning that the high-price hooker habit that drove him out of office was not frequent and "an egregious violation of my behavior."

    In an interview that aired on NBC's "Today" show, Spitzer admitted he thought about getting caught as he frequented call girls.

    "It crossed my mind, but like many things in life, you ignore the obvious at a certain moment because you simply don't want to confront it," he said.

    Spitzer, 49, who is married with three daughters, resigned as governor in March 2008 after the feds busted a prostitution ring and uncovered that he was a client.

    The feds later revealed that Spitzer's paid dalliances were with call girl Ashley Dupre (PHOTOS), paying her $4,000 for a steamy sex session.

    "This is something that has caused excruciating pain to [my wife] and my daughters," Spitzer said. "It's something that I carry with me every day because of the pain I've caused. And so I've tried to balance: The obligation to speak is vast, but also the pain to my family has been enormous."


    Spitzer did not try to defend his actions.

    "Like most of us, I suppose, I've had flaws," he said. "I've tried to think about it deeply, address it. There are no excuses. I have tried to address these gremlins, confront them. What I did was an egregious violation of trust to my family, to my colleagues, to the state, and I've paid a price and appropriately so."

    He looks like a gremlin. So unattractive.
    I hope his wife got/gets tested.
    Love the thread title, Lynnie
