10. That's a hell of a lot of money for a public servant
I'm sure Spitzer did all right for himself but he was a prosecutor in New York City; he was not a partner in a big firm. This had to be a serious percentage of his income.

1. Where did it come from?
2. How did his wife not notice that much missing?
