Speed reading even more of the Spitzer coverage

Spitzer's Kristen

Yep, according to the Times, that's her.

OK, here we go again. We've picked through piles of the coverage of Spitzer spitzering himself to pull out facts and details so you don't have to.

+ The New York Times reports that it's found the prostitute who met with Eliot Spitzer February 13 at the Mayflower Hotel. She's 22, an aspiring singer, and doesn't "want to be thought of as a monster." [NYT]

+ The woman who was the primary booker for the Emperor's Club appears to be a holistic healer from Rhinebeck. [Radar]

+ The apparent COO of the operation was a 23-year-old woman from Hopewell Junction (in the Catskills). And the CEO (so to speak), is a former tax preparer. [NYDN]

+ The richest man in Britain -- and godfather to Prince William -- also seems to have been a client of the operation. [NYDN]

+ "Friends" say Silda Wall Spitzer should dump Eliot. [NYDN]

+ Another "pal" says Silda once said of Hillary Clinton standing next to Bill after the Monica situation, "That would never be me. I'd be gone." [NY Post]

+ What do 20 random New Yorkers know about David Paterson? Not much, it seems [NY Mag]

+ Spitzer reportedly contacted Sheldon Silver on Tuesday to see if impeachment could be avoided. [NYT]

+ Many Democrats in the assembly seemed happy to have Spitzer out and Paterson in. [NYT]

+ Joe Bruno on Larry King about Spitzer: "But, Larry, he acts like an angry person generally. He'd rather fight than get along, it seems. And he's sort of governed by intimidation, by threatening. And that's too bad, because as you said, he had everything in the world going for him and here we are." [CNN]

+ Bruno, again on Larry King, about Paterson: "I get along extremely well with him. He was the minority leader in the senate while I've been majority leader. We communicate in a very collegial way and we get along just fine." [CNN]

+ Law professor: was Spitzer's financial trail targeted for political reasons? [Seattle Post Intelligencer]

+ Tempers flared outside the office building where Spitzer announced his resignation as media squabbled about who should be allowed in (link to embedded video). Among the arguments "We're the 15th largest paper in the nation. Size matters? Size does matter!" [CNN]
