And now, starring in the remake of "The Best Little Whorehouse in...Well, Anywhere There Are Planes, Trains, and Automobiles".... New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.
Although Charles Durning's "Ooooh I love to Do a Shuffle" song and dance in "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is brilliant, Spitzer won't be able to tap dance his way around serious ethics and legal problems that easily. Between the Emperors Club prostitution ring link, money laundering allegations, and inter-state sex trafficking questions, the self-ordained crusader against corruption is caught not only in crimes, but hypocrisy at its highest.
In case you've forgotten how it goes, here's Durning doing the shuffle.
CBS News Chief Investigative Correspondent Armen Keteyian takes a look at Spitzer's disgrace. The former prosecutor and New York Attorney General, who once vigorously went after a large-scale prostitution ring, is now known as "Client #9."
Spitzer is alleged to have been a repeat of the The Emperors Club, which rated its prostitutes on a scale of three to five "diamonds." The international sex trafficking ring, centered in the New York/New Jersey area, charged thousands of dollars per hour for sexual services.
