Posted on 07/15/2012 3:34:37 PM PDT by Hojczyk
If there were any doubt that Eliot Client 9 Spitzer has spiraled down into further delusion and irrelevance, it was erased Friday afternoon in an embarrassing and bizarre shootout between the disgraced former NY
Attorney General and CNBCs Maria Bartiromo. At issue were allegations that a trove of private emails may exist showing the former purchaser of high-priced prostitutes launched a personally motivated prosecution against former AIG chief Hank Greenberg. Of the eight charges Spitzer brought against Greenberg, six have been dropped, with the last two in the process of being dismissed, according to Greenbergs lawyer. Still, throughout the interview Spitzer alleged numerous times that Greenberg engaged in fraud, despite the fact that no federal or state court has ever found as much.
You cant say fraudulent because theres no indictment. You cant just throw around the word fraud, challenged CNBC reporter Maria Bartiromo. Why have six out of eight charges been dropped?
Finally, just when it seemed Spitzer couldnt appear any more pathetic and yesterdays news, Client 9 put in a plug for a TV show he apparently hosts on that ratings juggernaut
Current TV. After the sad and strange spectacle, a lawyer for Greenberg, Lee Wolosky, appeared with Bartiromo. Wolosky said Spitzers train wreck of an interview was further evidence of Spitzers personal animus toward Greenberg and that Client 9 owes him a long overdue apology.

There were stories that when Client #9 forced Greenberg out, and was replaced by Democrat favoring types, AIG's underwriting became lax, which in turn, help fuel the financial crises towards the end of Bush43.
I didn't follow it well enough to remember if it was pro-Greenberg propaganda, or closer to the truth.
After reading the article I must say...don’t let The SPRITZER point his bazooka at YOU! :)
What a joke. How does this guy still warrant a public forum?
What ever happened to the good old days when disgraced people just disappeared from view?
The liberal press has to prop them all up...Wiener dog will probably get elected in NYC...look at Clinton....the more rotten they are the better for the rats
The single biggest change in our society is the loss of a sense of shame.
Wiener is contemplating a run for NYC Mayor. How’s zat for brazenness?
He doesn’t and in a way they do. It’s called Current TV.
You completely miss the point. You can’t see what actually took place.
Hank Greenburg is a zillionaire. He is old. He has nothing special on which to spend his money. He carries a grudge.
He spent a trifling portion of his money to hire enough detectives to learn every action of Spitzer. He discovered the secret trips out of town. He discovered the prostitutes. He paid them lots of money for the dirt.
Hank Greenburg destroyed Spitzer and may still be after his sorry ass.
...in an embarrassing and bizarre shootout between the disgraced former NY Attorney General and CNBC's Maria Bartiromo... the former purchaser of high-priced prostitutes launched a personally motivated prosecution against former AIG chief Hank Greenberg. Of the eight charges Spitzer brought against Greenberg, six have been dropped, with the last two in the process of being dismissed, according to Greenberg's lawyer. Still, throughout the interview Spitzer alleged numerous times that Greenberg engaged in "fraud," ..."You can't say 'fraudulent' because there's no indictment. You can't just throw around the word 'fraud,'" challenged CNBC reporter Maria Bartiromo... just when it seemed Spitzer couldn't appear any more pathetic... put in a plug for a TV show he apparently hosts on that ratings juggernaut... Current TV.Spitzer should spend the rest of his sorry-assed life either in court, or in prison. Y'know, since there's no death penalty in NY state.
I can’t even remember the guy who was brought down from Presidental run, but had a boat called monkey business or something like that.
Wonderful!....and I hope he pursues that sorry ass to the grave.
Spitzer destroyed himself.
That would be Gary Hart.
Keep in mind the Rat party is a criminal enterprise......
The goal of Barney Franks et al was to develop loans and for housing for all. They wanted Fanniemae/freddie mac as a DNC slush fund. To do that they knew there must be bad loans. To protect the banks there must be massive sales of loans and the development of hybrid securities. There must be insurance to back up all the bad loans.
AIG insured financial transactions. Hank was a straight arrow and would not permit the scam. He was done in. Eliot Spitzer was delegated the job of killing ol hank and getting him out of the way.
Hank got his revenge and destroyed Spitzer.
Destruction is too little. The Governor should have been done in as an example
Whatta maroon. I guess he thought they were on his side, and wouldn't go after him. WRONG!
Spitzer was acting on DNC orders. He was promised the governorship for his actions. He did not destroy himself. He was done in by Hank Greenburg
