2008_03_socksspitz.jpgAccording to the tabloids (and the Miami Herald), apparently, former Governor Spitzer would not only solicit high-priced call girls in Florida but that he'd keep his black mid-calf socks on during the deed. Take that, NY Times story about finding the good in Spitzer's term as Governor!

Of course, these socking claims come from GOP operative Roger Stone, who may or may not have left a rude voicemail on Spitzer's dad's phone, calling Eliot a "phony, psycho piece of s---". Stone's lawyer apparently sent a letter to the FBI in November:

"The governor has paid literally tens of thousands of dollars for these services [in Florida]. It is Mr. Stone's understanding that the governor paid not with credit cards or cash but through some pre-arranged transfer,'' the letter said.

''It is also my client's understanding from the same source that Governor Spitzer did not remove his mid-calf length black socks during the sex act. Perhaps you can use this detail to corroborate Mr. Stone's information."

Some think Stone was involved with Spitzer's stunning fall, but the FBI would not confirm whether it had received the letter. Stone's past Florida work includes "shutting down the 2000 presidential election recount effort in Miami-Dade County"; he was also fired from Bob Dole's 1996 presidential campaign "after Stone and his wife placed a personal ad in a swingers magazine looking for a threesome."
