Spitz' Criminal Charges Get Swallowed

11/7/2008 5:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Disgraced NY Gov Eliot Spitzer just dodged a big bullet: He won't have to face criminal charges in Hookergate.

The US Attorney says there's no evidence Spitz spent anything but his own cash on Ashley Dupre and other hookers, so he won't be prosecuted. The Feds don't usually go after the clients in prostitution rings, and they think his resignation (and public humiliation) is punishment enough.

Clients 1-8, by the way, also skated, and weren't ever ID'd.

I think the public humiliation the loss of money and future money potential did more then a token prison sentence coulf ever accomplish. Can u even imagine the prison hes living in at home (and he deserves)...

There you go, any one of us would be facing jail. The system is currupt and works best for the rich and powerful. Judges take note, people are getting tired of it.

Elliott Spitzer is really freaky looking, He just always looked scary to me. He always seemed to me like the kind of guy who would not only get a hooker, but hack her up into peices when he was done and lick the blood off the knife for whilst pleasuring himself.

Ya know? Don't you think that if men really, really, really wanted to eliminate the worlds problems, they would have a long time ago invented a male vibrator?? But I guess that thing wouldn't cook for you, kiss your arse and wash your dishes, too.

any other man would have been prosecuted for some crime (one did happen by the way) and not simply get away scott free from the law.

Probation, community services, sex offender registries, even a night or two in jail.

This clown has "suffered enough" just the fact he lost his job and people found out? This hypocrite has ruined hundreds of lives chasing them around NY calling them criminals and perverts. Now, what the !#@$@, why not let every man he had arrested and "CRIMINALLY" punished for "paying for sex"?

Our American society is a disgrace, that is the answer. WE allow these clown to make law about and punish us for "morality" all while they themselves continue the same exact behaviors and "doge a bullet", are allowed to say "it's a personal matter"?

Come on America, it's not the laws, it's allowing the continued misconception that morality is what Government was meant to define and create laws and entire industries around i.e. read courts and prisons.

Fact is, they run out of ways to convince us we NEED more of what they are SELLING, GOVERNMENT.

Regardless of who they must mimic, even ALL the dysfunctional and illusional Religions of the WORLD.

Never forget, their business is Governing and the more reason to Govern the better for them, even though our Founders warned us of this very thing...BIG GOVERNMENT.

All that, and the American dollar if officially worth ZERO since the original value it held in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Bank was created. An entity no more Federal than Federal Express!

Folks, we're broke! The only place to go for the Government is the printing machine and they are gonna let her rip, and in turn, AMERICA will RIP.

Okay, first, Steve, your imagination is way too detailed and creepy. Makes me wonder if you are another Ted Bundy. And second, Eliot Spitzer is a disgustingly selfish man. I cannot comprehend how his wife stays by his side and also it is a shame that his young daughters had to find this out about their father. Why would a man sacrifice so much just for some cheap thrills? He is a loser all around and his wife should kick him to the curb.

I agree with #8. This man was a total fool and was living in a make-believe world in which he was untouchable by the law. I wish his wife would leave him, and she probably will soon. His daughters are mortified!

Thank you Toni! I try. I agree his wife should leave him but shes probably a dodo brained fool like every other politician's wife that is involved in this sort of thing (John Edwards for example). She'll just stand by her man literally and figuratively like a perfect stepford wife.

It seems the politicians that are most audibly adamant against gay marriage, living in sin, adultery, etc., are the very first ones to be sliping their foot under a bathroom stall at the airport to get some illicit sex on the sly..... As far as a spouse sticking by another, it seems so easy to judge that from the outside as well; Spitzer's wife may just be standing by him for ulterior motives, or maybe just because she loves him
