Spitzer’s Hypocrisy

The lady doth protest too much.
– Queen Gertrude, Hamlet Act 3, scene 2, 222–230

Eliot Spitzer was an outspoken prosecutor of prostitution, and now we know this hypocrite dirtbag is guilty of indulging in what he believes should be a crime.

As I have argued before that prostitution should be legal. Sex is legal, making money is legal, sex for money should be legal. It is the illegality of prostitution that exploits and victimizes women, not the act itself. Legalized prostitutions would be safe, federally regulated, and taxed like mad.

Spitzer’s crime is two-fold. First he criminalizes women who sell sexual services, and then he exploits them by feeding into the market demand for those services.
