In retrospect, Jane's Addiction's early-'90s power ballad "Whores" ("I love them whores 'cuz they never judge you") seems as if it was destined to be Eliot Spitzer's theme song. We all knew the Luv Gov enjoyed his sexytime with the prostitutes, but wow: According to Peter Elkind's book "Rough Justice: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer," Spitzer once summoned three prostitutes, one after the other, in a single day. The book isn't supposed to go on sale until next week, but the Post obtained a copy, and here's one salacious excerpt:
On one occasion, "George Fox" (Spitzer's alias) had booked an appointment in the late morning at the Mark Hotel, on the Upper East Side, just five minutes' walk from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As usual, he paid the girl in cash—about $1,200 an hour. Not long after it was over, he called (the booker) back, wanting to see a second escort. 'Who else is around?' he asked. (The booker) made the arrangements.
Then, late that afternoon, (Spitzer) called again.
'You're going to think I'm crazy,' he began. 'But can you send somebody else right now?'
He wanted a third girl? The booker chuckled: "You must be Superman! The man of steel!" (The booker) found him another girl. It wasn't even dark yet."
Spitzer was known from the Emperors Club as "George Fox," who happens to be a friend and donor to Spitzer. When the NY Times first contacted Fox and asked if he accompanied Spitzer to DC, Fox said, "Why would you think that? I did not.” But then when told Spitzer used Fox's name (with his own, real Fifth Avenue address), Fox said, "That is the first I have heard of it." And we shudder to think what poor Clark Kent thinks about all this.
Elkind's book also suggests that former Governor Mario Cuomo may have had knowledge of Spitzer's infidelities. Cuomo allegedly told Spitzer's former spokesman Darren Dopp that Spitzer was trouble:
"You don't understand," Cuomo finally declared, his voice quavering with emotion. "He's unfit to be governor. He's a bad man."
Dopp was shocked. Why was Cuomo saying this? Was it because of how ELiot had financed his old campaigns?
"No, it's about more than that," Cuomo cryptically replied, according to Dopp. "It's about the relationship between a man and a woman."
