Eliot Spitzer, working through his father's real-estate company, has bought a thirteen-story office building in downtown D.C. The building happens to be a mere block away from the Mayflower Hotel, where naught thirteen months ago Spitzer stripped down to his black socks and had tryst with a call girl that would destroy his career (but would make hers). In a move that was either ballsy or just plain disrespectful — we can't decide — the Wall Street Journal asked the former governor if the building's proximity to the hotel gave him any "mixed feelings."
Honestly. What did they expect him to say? "I feel both ashamed and aroused?"
