Spitz' Criminal Charges Get Swallowed

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.
