Disgraced Spitzer faces campaign cash inquiry
Ed Pilkington in New York The Guardian, Saturday March 15 2008

Prosecutors are homing in on the disgraced former New York state governor Eliot Spitzer, by investigating whether he used money raised for political campaigns to pay for travel and other expenses relating to his meetings with prostitutes.

The New York Times, which broke the story of his involvement with a prostitution ring that led to his resignation on Wednesday, said the inquiry into his actions was focusing on three trips in which he employed the services of women supplied by the Emperors Club VIP, a New Jersey-based operation. One of those meetings was the February 13 liaison at a Washington hotel that FBI agents wire-tapped.

On Myspace, Dupre talks about leaving a broken home aged 17 to flee abuse, and losing everything again and again. But reporters who staked out the New Jersey home where she grew up were surprised to discover a white brick house in a comfortable part of the Jersey Shore.

A childhood friend told Newsday: "From what I know, she had a normal, fine childhood. They had a lot of money and a lot of things. It's not a rough neighbourhood."
