Wow, Eliot Spitzer just keeps becoming more and more ‘da man’ as the days trickle by. Not only is the world about to see exactly the kind of ass he was tapping, but a new book is revealing just how deep his “transgressions” (Thanks, Tiger!) went. According to this excerpt from Peter Elkind’s upcoming bestseller-to-be Rough Justice: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer (Thanks, Fortune!), the former governor spent at least 100K on ten different high-priced prosties. But that’s not all. We sifted through all the boring secret financial transaction stuff to bring you all the good stuff, aka, the stuff about having sex with hookers. After the jump, some of the best bits of only an excerpt of what is going to be the best book since Journal of the Plague Year: An Insider’s Chronicle of Eliot Spitzer’s Short and Tragic Reign .
● “His awkwardness on the phone had disappeared as he learned the ropes of patronizing prostitutes.” ● He remained unusually guarded, and he refused to engage in small talk. “He practically attacked me when he walked in the door,” one escort told her phone booker afterward. “He was just ready.” ● “It was very businesslike,” Angelina recalls. “He was not one of those people who I would have said went out of their way to make me feel lovely and nice, like many did. It was very impersonal.” ● He’d brought along some Scotch, so they sat down to talk over a few drinks while listening to classical music. ● He paid for more hours than he’d use, just in case he was running late. Angelina would arrive first and wait for him in the room. Afterward he’d rush off. Angelina never noticed anyone around him — no friends, no subordinates, no security. He came and went alone. ● Despite his mixed reputation among the escorts, Dupré also said she liked him. Unlike some of her colleagues, she wasn’t put off by a client who didn’t bother much with small talk.
So there you have everyone. Eliot Spitzer is a dawg.
