Elizabeth Pisani on Spitzer (aka Client 9)
Clear thinking is often hard to find. Elizabeth Pisani does an excellent job here <link> discussing Eliot Spitzer, prostitution and morality.
“…policies based on morality, not reality, don’t work.”
“…he would have done better to crusade for health and safety regulations in the sex trade…”
“Interestingly…it’s illegal for one adult to pay another adult for sex, but perfectly legal for two adults to be paid to have sex with one another by a third person, who will film the encounter and then sell it as pornography to other adults.”
