Gov. Eliot Spitzer, the crusading New York politician who built his career on rooting out corruption, including prostitution rings, has now been linked to a high-end hooker. Spitzer apologized Monday for what he called "my shameful and relentless pursuit of irony."
The governor's comments came after allegations surfaced that he paid thousands of dollars for the call girl who, ironically, shared the governor's love of irony. Spitzer did not elaborate on the scandal, which drew calls for his resignation.
