This is priceless:
Dear Professor Lessig:
I have been informed that you are having former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer speak on ethics this Thursday November 12, 2009. This sounds fascinating and I would love to attend but the restrictions of my probation won’t allow me to travel out side New York City.
For nearly 5 years, I supplied Mr. Spitzer with high priced escorts while he was both Attorney General and Governor. For this crime, I served four months on Rikers Island, had all of my assets confiscated and am now considered a sex offender on 5 years probation. Mr. Spitzer broke both state and federal laws and walked away free.
I am greatly intrigued as to what Mr. Spitzer could contribute to an ethical discussion when as Chief Executive Law Enforcement Officer of NY he broke numerous laws for which he has yet to be punished. As Attorney General he went around arresting and making examples out of the same escort agencies he was frequenting.
That’s Manhatten madam Kristin Davis, who has a few questions for the former Governor, such as:
3. Is it ethical for you to tip off your favorite escort service days before a bust so that they may disappear?
4. Is it ethical to try to book an assignation with a escort under a fake name after you were banned by my agency for being abusive to women?
I’m guessing he won’t have a lot of answers.
