Hotels and prostitutes go together like peanut butter and jelly so there's no surprise when you find out some ladies of the evening are hitting up lodging establishments to do business.

But when you find out a high-ranking political official like New York's governor Eliot Spitzer, was arranging to meet a hooker, er excuse us high-priced prostitute, in a hotel room, allegedly, that's when things start to get interesting.

It's not quite unusual--politicians and prostitutes also go together like peanut butter and jelly (esp. in DC)--but it is shocking. Not so much for the act, but hello, you're a married governor doing something illegal. Did you really think you would not get caught? Did we not learn anything from the McGreevey days of 2004?

Anyways after the jump are the detes on the wiretap on a prostitution ring that identified Client 9 as Spitzer himself and had him arranging a meeting at DC's Mayflower Hotel.

The man described as Client 9 in court papers arranged to meet with a prostitute who was part of the ring, Emperors Club VIP, on the night of Feb. 13. Mr. Spitzer traveled to Washington that evening, according to a person told of his travel arrangements.

The affidavit says that Client 9 met with the woman in hotel room 871 but does not identify the hotel. Mr. Spitzer stayed at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington on Feb. 13, according to a source who was told of his travel arrangements. Room 871 at the Mayflower Hotel that evening was registered under another name.

Spitzer made a public apology today in a press conference with his wife by his side. No word on whether or not he will resign.

Now, if we ran the Mayflower Hotel we wouldn't be so worried about the bad publicity as say the Fairmont in Newport Beach should be. Besides, with hotel sex kits being such a hot trend these days, they might be able to make something fun out of room 871.

I was wondering what hotel it was. If only we knew his default pseudonym for hotel reservations! Like, is it at least a funny one?

George Fox is not a funny name ... I can't believe he settled for the Mayflower after the amounts he spent according the gossip (http://gridskipper.com/366110/governor-spitzers-big-night-out-in-dc)
