    Laura Ingraham invoked several high-profile Democrats while joking about the Harvey Weinstein allegations at the Values Voter Summit on Saturday. "Speaking of the Weinstein mess in Hollywood, there's finally a new law firm that has formed to give Gloria Allred a run for her money — you know, she represents a lot of these women who have been abused and subjugated in the workplace. And it's just formed, it's gonna be a big deal, it's called Clinton Weiner Spitzer & Weinstein," the conservative commentator quipped.

    Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson Jr. is out with his new book, On the Brink, where he details his version of events that occurred on Wall Street and Washington D.C.during the financial crisis while he was Treasury Secretary. All that you really need to know about this fairy tale can be found in the front of the book in what is labeled as "Author's Notes". In this preface, Paulson tells us that he doesn't take notes and doesn't use email and his staff was frustrated because he didn't send out memos, but fortunately, he tells us, he has a very...

    That was a quickie of a lawsuit! Eliot Spitzer has pulled out of a fraud and extortion case against an alleged Russian hooker who accused him of choking her at the Plaza Hotel — less than two months after filing the suit. “Eliot Spitzer, by and through his attorneys, hereby discontinues the above-entitled action without prejudice and without costs to either party as against the other,” the withdrawal notice says. The legal term “without prejudice” means Spitzer could refile the case in the future. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– Papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday say the notice of discontinuance was...

    It's Spitz-ville: Disgraced former New York governor Eliot Spitzer and his girlfriend, 33, break up - two years after affair ended his marriage It was an affair said to have cost Eliot Spitzer his marriage and his girlfriend her political spin job.

    What do you do if you throw a big party but nobody shows up? That wasn’t quite the case for Hillary Clinton this week, but it was close. It seems that one of her high profile, Big Apple supporters set up a private, “women only” event where the ladies would get some one on one face time with the presumptive Democrat nominee for the bargain basement price of only $2,700. Sadly, as the deadline approached, it became clear that not enough of Gotham’s ladies were up for the trip. Hillary Clinton had trouble attracting high-powered women to a New...

  • Report: Feds Cut Secret Plea Deal-- Protects Prince Andrew, Other Powerful Politicans From Charges

    A secret plea deal for Britain’s Prince Andrew’s pal Jeffrey Epstein protected the prince and any other high-powered friends who may have used his alleged sex slaves, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. Federal prosecutors promised they “will not institute any criminal charges against any potential co-conspirators of Epstein” if the Wall Street money manager pled guilty to two relatively minor state underage sex charges that put him in a local jail for 13 months, the confidential plea agreement obtained by Radar says. A lawsuit filed by four women, who say federal prosecutors illegally ignored them and kept them in the dark...

    Sleazy Eliot Spitzer turned a resort hot tub into a steamy love cauldron over the weekend — kissing and sucking the toes of his topless mistress, Lis Smith, in front of families with children, mortified witnesses told The Post. The still-married former Love Gov and Smith, Mayor de Blasio’s ex-mouthpiece, were spied frolicking near the family pool at around 4 p.m. Sunday at the Half Moon family resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. “It was gross,” said a hotel witness, who was vacationing with her family. “She had her top off.”

    He socked it to her. Eliot Spitzer lusted after violence, a former hooker says in a new tell-all book — revealing in graphic detail how the love gov pinned her to a bed inside a posh, Murray Hill apartment and then gripped her by the neck until she feared for her safety. The violence was scripted by Spitzer, who wanted his hooker to follow a role-play dialogue in which she would pretend she had just taken a self-defense class. The kinky politician would then pretend to test her skills by announcing, “Well, then, let’s see if you learned anything,” and...

    In what has been described as the "first scandal of the de Blasio administration," Lis Smith, a former Obama campaign aide and current spokeswoman for New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio's transition, is reportedly dating disgraced and still-married former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. According to a report in the New York Daily News, Smith, who had worked for Spitzer's failed campaign for comptroller, has been in a relationship with the "hooker-scandal-disgraced ex-governor who’s been living apart from his wife." Spitzer is 56 and Smith is 31.

    Bill de Blasio is standing by his flack – for now at least. The mayor-elect on Monday praised his spokeswoman Lis Smith despite revelations in The Post that she is shacking up with her married former boss — disgraced-ex Gov. Eliot Spitzer. “I respect Lis as a professional but I also respect her right to privacy. So I’m not going to get any further into it,” de Blasio said during a news conference in Brooklyn to announce two new appointments to his administration.

    Excerpt: The most obnoxious and unsuitable person in modern American public life had just been defeated. Eliot Spitzer lost his race for comptroller of New York City. That is a city notoriously capable of electing stupefyingly inappropriate people, but even New York balked at Spitzer. This was the man who persecuted Richard Grasso at the New York Stock Exchange, threatened the very distinguished John Whitehead and Ken Langone over that case; intimidated and threatened the directors of AIG and helped ruin that great company, and accused its great builder Maurice (Hank) Greenberg of crimes in the media, but did not...
